On the occasion of the Diwali festival, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday announced a web portal – ‘Delhi Bazaar’ to help businessmen, industrialists, professionals to promote their products all over the world.

Addressing a press conference, CM Kejriwal said that through this portal, a seller can sell his products anywhere across the world. He added that one can also explore shops in the locality and it will boost local shopkeepers to sell items and make money. You can just type the name of the shops you want to buy the product and can see what products are available in the shops. We can also organise a virtual exhibition of the products and can promote them. New start-ups can display their products.

Kejriwal further said that this is the first time such portal is being made where all the economic activity will be held under one roof. This will indeed boost Delhi's GDP, economic activity, employment, tax revenue and will help Delhi progress faster.

He said that there is a deadline to complete the work and August of next year has been set as the target to complete the work of the portal.

Kejriwal also said that hotels and weekly markets have been allowed to be opened and many other steps have been taken to strengthen the state’s economy. This is probably the first time that the rate of diesel has decreased by Rs 8. No other state would have dared to decrease diesel prices so sharply, he added.

Listing out the advantages of the web portal, Kejriwal also claimed that 'Delhi Bazaar' will help uplift the national capital's economy and generate numerous jobs for the people of Delhi. He added that even small businesses will be able to sell their products online at a global level. Kejriwal said that this will help in B2B transactions.

Also wishing the people a safe Diwali, CM Kejriwal asked people to be extra cautious this year as the Covid-19 virus spread rapidly during the festival season.

Covid-19 has reduced, and people are visiting markets during Diwali festival, but, we are seeing images of people not wearing masks. I appeal to all to wear face masks. Dengue cases are also rising. By removing all sources of stagnant water, we can prevent dengue, the Chief Minister said in his virtual address.
