With the Delhi government setting up a new Haat in Mehrauli, private artisans and non-profit organizations will also receive a chance to display their craft. The new haat is expected to be quite different from its other two counterparts in INA and Pitampura.
Rina Ray, Managing Director, Delhi Tourism and Transportation Development Corporation (DTTDC) informed that, this haat will be established on the public private partnership (PPP) model and that the DTTDC will undertake its construction.
A number of various private organizations will set up stalls in the haat. The shops which could attract both domestic buyers as well as foreign tourists would be taken into consideration for inclusion in the new Haat.
Prices of various quality products displayed under one roof for foreign and domestic visitors would be dependent on the company, alike the other two Haats. Private organizations will see to the management of stalls displaying local handicrafts and arts of various artisans.
Ray further said that NGOs as well as social organizations involved in commercial local handicraft selling would be part of the new Haat, which will also house looms and pottery sheds to offer an experience of the creative process to the visiting tourists.
