Kamala Market, the historic municipal mart and a veritable city landmark, may soon give way to a high-rise commercial complex.
The North Delhi Municipal Corporation, as part of its budget has firmed up plans to replace the over 60-year-old bazaar, dubbed Asia’s biggest air-cooler market, with a multi-storeyed building complex to “increase the revenues”.
“Commercial spaces like Kamala Market and Gaffar Market, only couple of storey high and built years ago, have now grown decrepit and are occupying space. By replacing them with modern commercial complexes we seek to utilise the space as well as increase the revenues for the civic body.
