Delhi’s entry points to be developed

August 1, 2006

NEW DELHI: With the aim of enhancing visitors’ experience when entering the national capital, Delhi government has decided to develop the city’s entry points and equip them with various facilities. Delhi State Industrial and Infrastructure Development Corporation (DSIIDC) has been entrusted with the task of developing the eight entry points. Each entry point would have a different look, but they would all have facilities such as trade and tax department, toll collection booths, petrol pumps, food courts, tourism kiosk and weigh bridges. “When you enter Delhi, you should get a feel of the place and the fact that you are entering the national capital. The project has been taken up to enhance this feeling,” said DSIIDC Managing Director Jalaj Shrivastava.
