The policy received the assent of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in June, and the administration intends to set up food trucks at sixteen different spots throughout the city. According to officials, Saurabh Bharadwaj, the minister of tourism, has received a draft policy on food trucks and is currently reviewing it.

An official said that after he gives his approval, the policy would be posted online for public comment. He continued that the policy would be notified after incorporating the helpful feedback. According to officials, the indicated plots have not yet been purchased from various road-owning organisations. After they are purchased, they will be given to a concessionaire who will deliver food trucks to the location.

The concessionaire will be responsible for obtaining licences and permits from various authorities, with the Delhi Tourism and Transportation Development Corporation serving as an intermediary.

Parking on its property is not free before 10 pm since the services run late into the night. In order to acquire more land, the official said that a meeting would be held with the agencies. If not, the service will begin at these two points and make its way to other parts of the capital over time.

The first 16 sites were Dilli Haat in Janakpuri and Pitampura, DDA Park in Rohini, and the Vishwavidyalaya Metro Station. The government had announced in June that food truck hubs, such as those in Australia, Hong Kong, and New York, will soon be present in Delhi.
