To address the information needs of native and foreign guests during the Commonwealth Games, 2010, tourist information cafes would be set up across the Capital.
While 30 people-friendly kiosks have already been installed at prime market locations in the MCD area, another 10 will follow soon in the NDMC area, senior officials said.
Designed by four individuals — Arvind Ranyal, Suresh Goyal, Amita Bansal Malik and Ved Pohoja — the cafes will have a touch-screen interactive device, which will have information on how to reach the venue and various modes of transport available in the city.
The touch screens would interact in eight different Indian and foreign languages.
The cafes would also have limited editions of souvenirs include t-shirts, caps, bags, crockery, chocolates, stationery, key chains and would also have a counter for sale of coffee table books on Delhi.
"Tourist information cafes would disseminate information such as points of tourist attractions, shopping, food and nightlife ," a senior Delhi government official said.
