Delhi will become the first state in the country to bring a Food Truck Policy on the lines of US and UK: Manish Sisodia

NEW DELHI: The Delhi Government is working on a war footing to implement the announcements made in the Rozgaar Budget at the ground level. In this regard, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia held a review meeting with the concerned department officials on Tuesday. The primary focus during the meeting was laid on the upcoming mega event — The Delhi Shopping Festival and Food Truck Policy.

Markets and traders are excited about Delhi Shopping Festival, eagerly waiting for it

While briefing the Deputy Chief Minister about the progress of the much awaited Delhi Shopping Festival, the officials said that the agencies concerned have interacted with the representatives of various markets, trade circles at various levels regarding the Delhi Shopping Festival. The market associations and traders are very enthusiastic about the Delhi Shopping Festival and are eagerly waiting for Delhi’s first shopping festival. They are ready to work closely with the government at every stage of its implementation.

The government is also gearing up for the much awaited Delhi Shopping Festival which is scheduled to be held on January 28 to February 26, 2023. The festival will be conducted across all the popular markets, shops, and malls of the national capital which will offer discounts, fun, food and entertainment to every person visiting Delhi during that time. Along with this the festival will have grand opening- closing ceremonies and various other events. The month-long festival will not only provide a unique experience of Delhi to the visitors, but will also boost the business of tourism and hospitality industries by 25%. The festival has potential to generate about 1.2 lakh jobs over the next five years.

Delhi Government’s Food Truck Policy ready, will be launched soon

The Delhi Government is exploring all the avenues that can be beneficial in boosting the economy of the national capital as well as the country. In view of the same, Food Truck policy is another major step towards generating thousands of jobs. It will give a boost to the night time economy of the capital and expand business opportunities for restaurants, hotels and cafes in Delhi. The government is in the process of finalizing the hotspots where food trucks will be allowed to set up their trucks for the public. Stakeholder consultation with various agencies has already been conducted in this regard. It is to be noted that business related to food trucks is not new to India, but no state in the country has made any policy to streamline this business and increase employment opportunities in this sector. In this direction, Delhi will become the first state in the country to bring “Food Truck Policy”.

While reviewing the projects, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said, “In our Rozgaar Budget we announced various projects that can foster growth of the economy and generate 20 lakh jobs in the next five years. Of them, Delhi Shopping Festival and Food Truck Policy are two priority projects which will be launched soon. Where the shopping festival will be a big opportunity for the traders, shopkeepers, tourism and hospitality industry to increase their business and revenue, the Food Truck Policy will open avenues for growth of the capital’s night time economy.”

Manish Sisodia directed the officials to expedite the preparations for both the projects so that they can be launched within the stipulated deadline.
