Delhi government announces online marketplace for traders in the city


Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday announced ‘Dilli Bazaar’, an online marketplace, where every small and big entrepreneur in the capital will have their own e-commerce store.

He said the portal would give a global online identity to entrepreneurs and enable shoppers to virtually browse Delhi’s markets and buy any product they like from their homes.

“The Government of Delhi has taken an initiative which will bring prosperity to the businesses of traders and businessmen, industrialists and professionals in Delhi. We are developing a website called ‘Dilli Bazaar’ where every entrepreneur in town will have their own online store,” Mr Kejriwal said during a digital briefing.

Virtual bazaars

“We will be able to present all our products and services on this portal. Virtual bazaars are being developed on this portal,” he said.

Major markets ranging from Khan Market, Lajpat Nagar and Sarojini Nagar to neighborhood DDA markets located in the capital’s residential settlements are said to be present on the portal which the chief minister said is expected to be operational by next August.

Not only business-to-business transactions between shops and businesses in Delhi and any part of the world, the portal would also enable virtual trade exhibitions in which individuals from all over the world could attend.

“The portal will further enable unique online exhibitions instead of limiting an exhibition to a fixed area and a fixed number of people, this portal will foster endless opportunities even for the most specialized products,” a- he declared.

“’Dilli Bazaar’ will be a huge support for start-ups. These start-ups will get a big boost in their businesses by being exposed to a market like this. I am of the opinion that this is a one-of-a-kind initiative and that there is no such path in the world yet,” he added.

Maintaining COVID Standards

The CM further spoke about maintaining COVID-appropriate behavior during the festivities and asked citizens to exercise caution when visiting markets.

“I have also seen images of markets where standards are violated. I cross my hands in front of the people of Delhi and make a serious request – please wear your masks, please follow Covid appropriate behavior,” he said.

“It was around this very time last year that COVID cases skyrocketed and badly affected the state’s festivities. Please don’t be irresponsible. I’m not asking this for personal gain, you’ll get sick. It is you whose families will be threatened,” he said.
