The Pragati Maidan was founded in 1982 as the venue of the annual India International Trade Fair that is typically held in November. This seven acre land has permanent buildings for exhibition areas for all the states of the country. The Nehru Pavilion, Defense Pavilion, the Son of India Pavilion, the Indira Pavilion, and Village Complex are worth a visit. Many business units from all over the world partake in these fairs, thus resulting in industrial relationships and joint ventures. There are four entrances to this huge Maidan.
The best time to visit the Pragati Maidan is November since that is the time the India International Trade Fair is held. This fair sees some 6,000 companies, mostly from India and other Asian countries exhibit their products at an international fair of such huge magnitude.
