DDC Delhi organised wide-ranging consultations with representatives of Delhi market and trade bodies on December 1, 2022 to seek their partnership and inputs in the formulation of the ‘Dilli Bazaar’ web portal. Delhi's market associations whole-heartedly welcomed the Kejriwal government's decision to set up the ‘Dilli Bazaar’ web portal and gave several practical inputs in ensuring this initiative becomes successful.
Recently announced by Delhi CM Shri Arvind Kejriwal, the 'Dilli Bazaar' portal will be Delhi’s own e-marketplace where every small and large shop-owner will have a virtual store and will be able to sell their products online across the globe. This is an attempt to ensure that the web portal has the potential to result in positive outcomes for buyers as well as sellers.
Over 40 trade/market association representatives from various areas like Chandni Chowk, Bhagirath Palace, Sadar Bazar, Khari Baoli, Naya Bazar, Mori Gate, Chawri Bazar, Connaught Place, Lajpat Nagar, Karol Bagh, Sarojini Nagar, Khan Market, Rajouri Garden, Kamla Nagar, Palika Bazar, Rohini, Pitampura, Laxmi Nagar, Krishna Nagar, Gandhi Nagar etc. discussed the role of market bodies in setting up the upcoming portal and ways to coordinate with Delhi government for the same.
During the course of the consultation, several market/trade association representatives gave practical suggestions on how to structure the online platform for the maximum benefit of the traders/businesses. They particularly lauded the Delhi Government's proposal to involve market associations as partners in the process of designing the portal, onboarding new businesses and regulating fake registrations on the portal.
