As part of the redevelopment of Kirti Nagar Market, one of the five iconic markets that the Delhi government has taken up for redevelopment this financial year, youth engaged in different activities in the market will be imparted skill training, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said on Friday.

Mr. Sisodia added that as part of the market’s facelift, all overhead power transmission cables will be laid underground. “Kirti Nagar Market is an iconic market.
