Major industrial groups, including Reliance industries, have lined up to buy or rent space at major malls being set up in the holy city. The Reliance group, which has recently ventured into retail segment, has shown keen interest to set up shop for its large retail stores. This would be the first retail store by a leading company in Punjab.

A leading real estate developer and at present involved in a major construction project for a leading construction company in Delhi, Mr Kapil Mehra, said that the upcoming malls have been receiving quite enthusiastic response from the leading Indian and international brands, including major food chains, to set up their retail outlets in the city.

He said at present the mall authorities were receiving enthusiastic response from India and abroad. He claimed that majority of the space available in the malls would be sold out positively by next year.
