The 38th edition of the India International Trade Fair commenced at Pragati Maidan in New Delhi today based on the theme of rural enterprises in India. The dates for the fair are November 14, 2018 to November 27, 2018, open for all Delhiites. However, there seems to be a respite from the raging crowd at the fair as 25000 visitors have been fixed to attend it and at whatever time the visitors cross the number, the entry will be halted for the others.
