Delhi Metro Stations to have 160 handicraft kiosks

19
Aug '09
Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) will set up 160 Kiosks at various Metro Stations in the national capital, in partnership with the Ministry of Textiles, to display and sell handicraft items in a bid to promote small-scale industry.

DMRC will fabricate these high-quality kiosks, which will be set up at existing and upcoming Metro Stations in a phased manner starting from October this year, informed a DMRC spokesman.

The ministry wants to install these kiosks to endorse handicraft and handloom products by setting up the shops at highly-visible positions on the stations, at which the entire range of products will be displayed.

The Textile Secretary, Ms. Rita Menon presented a Rs. 5 crore check to the DMRC Managing Director, Mr. E. Sreedharan, as the first installment for establishing the kiosks, whereas, another Rs. 5 crore will be paid subsequently.

DMRC will offer the space required for kiosks and its maintenance. At every selected Metro Station, two kiosks, each of 9 x 12 sq. m. will be installed.

These shops will prove to be an ideal marketing platform for wholesalers and retailers, where local food items would also be sold besides handicrafts and textiles.
