"Skilling India" will be the theme of Delhi Pavilion at the two-week India International Trade Fair starting Nov 14 at the Pragati Maidan here.

Under one roof, the Delhi Pavilion - always one of the most popular at the trade fair - will showcase everything that has made Delhi the proud capital of modern India.

The pavilion is managed by Delhi State Industrial and Infrastructure Development Corp (DSIIDC) for the Delhi government.

The pavilion will showcase the human resource of the country, including the many skills that have contributed to the spectacular growth of Indian industry, particularly Delhi, a DSIIDC statement said.

Fourteen years of relentless development pursuit by the Delhi government, including implementation of welfare schemes, have earned for the city a better standard of living, the statement said.

In the process, Delhi has proved to be a dream destination for people from all walks of life.

Connectivity has been made easy thanks to Delhi Metro, pollution free CNG buses and other public transport, flyovers and roads that extend to all parts of the city.

The pavilion also shows why the capital is considered a city that cares for the vulnerable sections.

Delhi is acknowledged as one of the greenest capitals of the world. This too figures in the pavilion. And so does the city's rich flora and fauna.

The House Sparrow, declared the state bird by the Delhi government, is represented and highlighted through a large installation at the entrance.

A spokesman said the pavilion will also display the role of government departments and civic agencies in changing the face of the city.
