New Delhi, Nov 11 (UNI) Sixty years of country's Independence with a mix of the national capital's development in the IT sector in the past 10 years will be showcased at the India International Trade Fair (IITF) to be held here from November 14.

In keeping with the strides made in IT, the pavilion will be called 'Delhi @ 10', Delhi State Industrial and Infrastructure Development Corporation (DSIIDC) Managing Director Manoj Parida said in a statement.

''The national capital has transformed into a modern and high-tech city in the past decade, and is all set to hold the Commonwealth Games in 2010. The pavilion will focus on the unprecedented achievements of the Delhi government during these 10 years in almost all fields, ranging from industry, forestry, health, power, education and social welfare,'' Mr Parida said.

The 'Rajiv Ratna Awaas Scheme', inaugurated by UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi and being implemented by DSIIDC for providing affordable housing to urban poor, will be specially highlighted.

The pavilion will highlight that Delhi has not lost any of its heritage and ancient culture even while foraying into the world of modern multi-modal transportation and ultra-modern telecommunication, he said.

The wall of the pavilion will have translites depicting the achievements and progress made by Delhi government in various fields such as urban development, power, industry, transport, health services, e-governance, environment and women's empowerment.

''One section of the wall will be dedicated to the Commonwealth Games, being held in India for the first time. The mascot of the games, 'Shera', will sit proudly on the roof of the stadium, visible to one and all,'' Mr Parida said.

The high-tech steel gates will symbolise the entrance to a world-class city. A translite here will carry factual details of the various achievements of the various ministries and departments. The fair theme will also be highlighted on the walls of the basement area.

The atrium will be decorated with colourful fabrics and a blooming tri-colour fabric flower hung upside down, depicting vibrant and healthy governance, he said.
