New Delhi, June 4 (ANI): President Pranab Mukherjee will inaugurate a renovated shopping complex in Rashtrapati Bhavan today.
The complex responds to a long standing desire of employees of the Rashtrapati Bhavan and their families living on the President's Estate to have a full-fledged shopping complex that caters to their requirements. The President has desired that this genuine need be fulfilled.
Eight shops in the President's Estate Market have been in existence since the pre-Independence era, out of which six shops were available for fresh allotment. The complex will include six new shops, including a Safal Outlet, a Kendriya Bhandar and a Shakti Haat.
The Shakti Haat is an outlet where Self Help Groups (SHGs) of Rashtrapati Bhavan will market their products like homemade masalas, organic compost and handmade envelopes.
The members of SHGs are wives of employees of the Rashtrapati Bhavan. (ANI)
