New Delhi: As part of a joint initiative by DMRC and Sahitya Akademy, the Akademy opened its second Book shop in Metro premises at the Vishwavidyalaya Metro station today. One bookstall of the Sahitya Akademi is already functunal at the Kashmere Gate Metro station.

The idea of this initiative is to promote the Indian Literature by providing quality books in Indian languages published by the Akademy and also to cultivate reading habits among Metro commuters and employees.

The Metro passengers can avail 15% discount on the books purchased from this book shop by showing their Delhi Metro Smart Card. Limited edition of DMRC publications will also be made available for sale from the Metro book shop.

The Bookshop was formally inaugurated by Shri Vishwanath Prasad Tiwari, Chairman of the Sahitya Akademy in the presence of other senior DMRC and Sahitya Akademy officials.  DMRC has already opened two Bookshops in association with National Book Trust at Kashmere Gate and Vishwavidyalaya Metro stations in 2014.

DMRC in recent times has taken up the initiative of tying up with various government bodies/organizations (National Book Trust, Delhi Tourism, Sahitya Akademy, India Habitat Centre, Ministry of Textiles etc.) authorizing them to use the Metro premises in such a way that they are treated as a hub for promotion of Indian Art, Culture, Literature, Craft, Tourism etc.
