Aiming to cash in on the upcoming Commonwealth Games, city-based Ved Pohoja Associates today said it will set up 40 kiosks in prominent areas across the capital to provide information to tourists.
Branded as 'Tourist Info-Cafes', the 40 kiosks will be operational from September 15 to November 15.
They will offer details related to the games being held from October 3-14, information about tourist attractions in the city, culture, shopping, food, accommodation and nightlife.
"It is a part of the CWG branding exercise for which we have got permission from the state government and local authorities to set up these cafes for 60 days," Designer and Concept Creator Ved Pohoja told PTI.
He said 30 such kiosks have already come up across the city and the remaining are in the process of being set up.
"The total budget for the 60-day project is Rs 7.5 crore," Pohoja added. The kiosks will have touch screens to provide information about ATMs, police stations and hospitals, along with important contact numbers in the city.
In addition, the kiosks will also sell souvenirs branded as 'Delhi Memories', besides serve beverages and snacks.
