Dilli Haat is a paid-entrance open-air food plaza and craft bazaar located in Delhi, run by Delhi Tourism and Transportation Development Corporation. Unlike the traditional weekly market, the village Haat, Dilli Haat is permanent. It is located in the commercial centers of South Delhi, opposite INA market.
The History of Dilli Haat tells us that it was established and opened in 1994 with the joint venture of Delhi Tourism (DTDC), D.C (Handicrafts), NMDC, D.C. (Handlooms) and Ministry of Tourism and Textile, Government of India. In 2003 this market became accessible to all the tourists and it also had a bathroom that was made accessible at the same time. Delhi has two such markets one is Dillihaat and another one is Pitampura. Both the markets are developed by DTTDC.
