The Sunday Book Market at Daryaganj has been shut down following the July order of Delhi High Court. The order, stating that no weekly market would be permitted on Sundays at Netaji Subhash Marg (NS Marg) near Jama Masjid, came in response to a Traffic Police report. The report suggested that being a very busy road, NS Marg saw high traffic every hour of the day and that booksellers occupy the footpath, leaving no space for pedestrians.

“We are merely going by the Delhi High Court order. The court has declared the Netaji Subhash Marg a ‘no-squatting and no-hawking’ zone, so the book market cannot operate out of there,” Veditha Reddy, deputy commissioner of the ‘City Sadar-Paharganj’ zone of the North Delhi Municipal Corporation (NDMC) told Hindustan Times.

The book market was popular among natives of Delhi of all age groups alike but especially within the student community. It was a one-stop destination for all course-related or entrance examination preparation books among other fiction/ non- fiction works.
