New Delhi World Book Fair postponed amid Covid restrictions

The 30th edition of the New Delhi World Book Fair (NDWBF), which was scheduled to be held at Pragati Maidan from January 8 to 16, has been postponed in view of the latest DDMA guidelines imposed following the surge in Covid cases driven by the fast-spreading Omicron variant.

First organised in 1972, the NDWBF was planning to celebrate its golden jubilee with a photo exhibition this year.

“In view of the latest DDMA guidelines, and the requests made by various stakeholders, the NDWBF 2022 has been postponed. The fresh dates will be announced separately,” said National Book Trust (NBT), the organiser of the event, in the statement.

The theme for this year’s festival was ‘Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav’, commemorating 75 years of Indian independence. A number of literary and cultural programmes, including a special children’s corner, yuva corner, seminars, discussions, workshops, were organised with France as the guest country.
