New Delhi, Jan 1 (UNI) A 14-day Kashmir festival began at the Dilli Haat here today.

The festival, the first of its kind at the Dilli Haat, is being organised by the Jammu and Kashmir Tourism Department.

More than 200 stalls have been put up where besides shawls, paper mache and walnut items, the visitors would also enjoy the famed Kashmiri ''wazwan'' cuisine and ''kehwa'' tea.

However, some exhibitors complained of exorbitant stall charges at the festival.

''We have to pay Rs 6000 as stall charges for 14 days. We also have to pay extra for furniture such as tables for displaying our products,'' said Reyaz Ahmed, an exhibitor.

He also lamented lack of media publicity for the festival. ''As a result, less number of visitors come to the festival...resulting in low sales,'' Reyaz added.
