The long-awaited moment has arrived as the world-class wholesale haat, the “Srijan Global Haat,” opens its doors. Previously, the concept of haat was an old-time notion where ostagars/karigars (artisans) exhibit their clothing materials for men, women as well as children. The customers visit the haat and make their purchases from the ostagars themselves. Earlier the haats were not very organized, especially in areas like Metiabruz, Howrah or even Mangla haat, with no proper infrastructure and did not cater properly to the needs of ostagars. But recently, in places like Ankurhati, new haats were built like JP haat, Kolkata international haat, and others where ostagars are currently doing business, showing better potential. Adjacent to Srijan Industrial Logistic Park, Srijan is establishing a new wholesale Air conditioned haat, the Srijan Global Haat, extravagantly, with the best in class infrastructure and landscaping and all kinds of required top notch amenities and facilities to successfully run the haat.
Located strategically at the crossroads of Domjur Road and NH6, Srijan Global Haat promises to be an iconic landmark that transcends conventions.
