Breaking: Delhi Govt issues tender for empanelment of event agencies


After extending a model initiative for single window licensing, pre-approved venues and online entertainment tax payment, AAP-led Delhi Government has extended an enthusiastic invitation to event planners to organize their marquee events in Delhi. In order to achieve this, the Delhi Government Cabinet led by CM Arvind Kejriwal and consisting of Tourism Minister Kapil Mishra have initiated certain policies to facilitate an environment that aims to establish Delhi as the hub of media, entertainment and events.

In relation to this, the government is also encouraging event planners to organize events on the banks of Yamuna and has promised to supply them with a clean river by administering an aggressive cleanliness campaign.

During his recent visit to EEMAX Global Conclave in Mumbai, Minister Kapil Sharma stated, "We want to be your partners and not overlords demanding a percentage cut from your well-earned business. The objective of our governance is to create a regulated and easy policy environment and get out of the way. My hope from our transformative policy vision is that we don’t have to meet ever again for work, but only as friends. You should forget where the government office is to do your work.”

In an open letter to the event fraternity, Roshan Shankar- Advisor to the Government of NCT of Delhi said, "We want you to bring your best events to Delhi during the Delhi Festival in February and we want you to help develop 15 special tourism hubs across Delhi by working with associations of all the industries that encompass movies, media, film, tourism, hospitality, art, culture, retail and heritage. It is our government’s personal commitment to you that you will never have to pay a bribe and that the Delhi Government will facilitate all the things that you need to make this happen."

Following the announcement Delhi tourism has uploaded an e-tender that seeks to empanel event and entertainment management companies to do events with the government in Delhi. Details of the tender can be found here. The tender no. is 2015_DTTDC_87653_1
