He said that a 10,000 sq. ft waterproof hangar pandal would be erected for the fair, so that visitors are not bothered by the harsh sunlight in the afternoons.

“We will have all kinds of titles starting from Amar Chitra Katha editions to competitive exam books for students and children, we will also set up activities for the younger visitors,” said Chandel.

He also said that there would be Hindi and English publishers and stalls set up from across the country, including one Osho Tapoban from Kathmandu, Nepal.
