The Dilli Bazaar e-portal, a discovery platform for local markets, will go live with 10,000 vendors in December, the government said on Tuesday. The government’s ambitious project will enable shoppers across the globe to have a virtual tour of the city’s key markets and shop on the lines of other e-commerce platforms. Within six months of the launch, the Delhi government aims to bring over 1 lakh shops to the Dilli Bazaar portal, making them a part of a 24×7 digital storefront.

Through Dilli Bazaar, the Arvind Kejriwal government aims to bring Delhi’s markets to a cutting-edge digital platform where every Delhi-based trader will be able to display and sell their products to the world, it said. According to the statement, Kejriwal chaired a high-level review meeting at the Delhi Secretariat to take stock of the progress of the project. Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia and Dialogue and Development Commission of Delhi (DDCD) Vice Chairperson Jasmine Shah were also present in the meeting.

The portal will adopt the Open Network for Digital Commerce (ONDC) protocol to establish an open network of e-marketplaces in Delhi, which will help shift buyer and seller transactions from closed platforms to decentralised open networks.

For instance, if a customer wants to purchase shoes from a shop in Connaught Place while sitting at home, he/she will log on to the portal and choose the desired pair. After this, the customer will get an option to purchase the footwear from not just Dilli Bazaar portal but also other empanelled portals where the seller has listed his products, it said. “This provision will help the shopkeepers of Delhi get a digital presence not just on the Dilli Bazaar portal but on various e-commerce portals opening a wide horizon of opportunities for them,” the statement said.

The vision behind the move is to showcase Delhi’s unique markets on a virtual platform; expose city’s businesses to buyers globally; facilitate businesses to be setup, grow and diversify and to provide credible and affordable e-commerce platform to trades.
