IL&FS & MRIDA: GRAMEEN HAAT - TAHTAJPUR, BAREILLY DISTRICT
The Grameen Haat is a bright and cheery travel stop located along the Bareilly Bypass, Uttar Pradesh. It offers drinking water, clean toilets, and a market opportunity for local rural artisans and farmers to sell their goods. Villagers come together from TahTajpur and neighbouring areas to display and market their vegetables, stitched clothes, terracotta, baskets, spices, and accessories.
In addition to serving as a marketplace, the Haat also provides a source of employment for its overall functioning, maintenance and coordination.
The attractively designed, small but functional structure also meets the basic demands of travellers passing through by providing clean drinking water, refreshments, toilets, and a first aid kit.
