Delhi’s iconic Meharchand Market known for its designer boutiques, restaurants and jewellery shops, is all set to undergo a revamp. The market in Lodhi Colony will get a new lease of life after the South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) gave its nod to the proposal of redeveloping the popular shopping hub that has remained shut since 2018 sealing drive.

The market named after Mehar Chand Khanna, who was Union minister of rehabilitation in the 1950s, is originally a place to settle refugees from Pakistan after Partition. The area will be revamped as per the Master Plan of Delhi 2021 where shops will get a floor area ratio (FAR) of 350 compared to the present FAR of 150.

“It will be the traders’ responsibility to redevelop their shops as per a ‘standard plan’ prepared by the corporation’s architecture department. The plan provides norms for construction of the outer façade, display windows, columns, advertising boards, billboard, etc. This will provide a uniform look to the market. The front façade of all shops in the redeveloped market would be the same. The shops will follow a definite colour code pattern as suggested by the ‘standard plan,” said an official.
