NEW DELHI: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday announced the development of food hubs in the national capital. In the first phase, the food hubs of Majnu Ka Tila and Chandani Chowk areas will be developed.

“With the development of these food hubs, the business will increase in Delhi. With the strengthening of the economy, a large number of new employment opportunities will be generated,” Delhi CM said while terming the city as the food capital of India.

“After extensive research and several meetings with market associations, Majnu Ka Tila and Chandni Chowk have been selected to be developed as food hubs,” Kejriwal said.

He said that the government will make arrangements for roads, electricity, water and sanitation inside the food hubs. He also said that all guidelines of food safety and hygiene will be strictly followed.

Delhi’s food hubs will be promoted with unique branding all over the country and the world so that people coming to Delhi from across the globe can experience our food hubs.

Within the next six weeks, the government will conduct a design competition, in which designs will be sought from the country’s top architecture firms to develop both markets.

In the next 12 weeks, the architectural design will be finalised and the contracts will be granted to start the work of developing both the food hubs.

“Based on the experiences received from both the food hubs, more food hubs in Delhi will be identified and developed in the next phase,” CM said.
