Delhi government announces electronic marketplace for traders
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal announced on Wednesday that entrepreneurs in Delhi will soon have their own electronic marketplace, “Dilli Bazaar”, where every entrepreneur small and large will have their own e-commerce store.
“’Dilli Bazaar’ will be a revolutionary, state-of-the-art portal that will give Delhi entrepreneurs a global identity online, like from their home itself,” said Kejriwal.
Delhi’s GDP, tax revenues and economic activities will experience a monumental increase after the launch of the Dilli Bazaar portal; world affairs will come to Delhi. Someone sitting in America will also be able to buy from Delhi’s smaller business. “Dilli Bazaar” will support both Direct-To-Consumer and Business-To-Business companies and start-ups will greatly benefit from this exposure, he added.
Giving an example of Delhi’s famous Khan market, Kejriwal said, “There will also be an online Khan market on this portal. You can take a virtual tour on this portal and feel the Khan market on your phone. or the computer itself. From the markets of Lajpat Nagar and Sarojini Nagar to the small DDA markets inside the settlements will be present in a virtual avatar on “Dilli Bazaar”.
He added that there is also a business-to-business side to this. Suppose a businessman from UK wants to buy Indian antiques, he can go to our portal, search the antiques and also order large quantity. Suppose the person needs 200 or even 1000 antiques, they can contact a Delhi company directly through the portal.
