Providing a platform for only female retailers, the market would cater to an all-woman customer base!
With a long list of initiatives introduced by the Uttar Pradesh government under Mission Shakti, the Lucknow Municipal Corporation had also made provisions for a women-only market in the city. As per the latest developments, the civic authority has announced funds worth ₹50 lakhs for setting up this complex. Additionally, the officials are also looking for a suitable area for the establishment of this market and it is expected to be finalised soon.
Market to house shops dealing in a range of women's products
As per the higher officials, the market would encapsulate a large count of shops that would cater to all kinds of requirements faced by women. From clothing, cosmetics and accessories to daily essentials, the market is expected to evolve as a one-stop-destination for Lucknow's womenfolk. With only female buyers and sellers, this different type of market would assure a safe and relaxed shopping trail for women.
In addition to this, the current plans indicate that the campus would also consist of pink toilets, baby feeding centres and creche areas for kids. When the women would be busy collecting their products, their children can be put in the creche for a safe and delightful time.
First of its kind measure by Lucknow's first female Mayor
Through the stretch of 100 years in the past, this is the first time that a female Mayor is guiding developments in the city. The municipal corporation has prioritised all welfare schemes and projects aimed at the social and economic empowerment of women. While the upcoming facility shall upgrade women-centric plans in the city, it will also lead to better management of the crowded public space.
