Book lovers will soon be able to buy books published by the Sahitya Akademi at two Metro stations, following inking of an MoU Wednesday.

The stations will be Kashmere Gate and Vishwa Vidyalaya.

As part of the agreement, Delhi Metro will allot space of suitable size at the two stations to the Sahitya Akademi, an organisation committed to promoting Indian literature, for opening bookshops for a period of three years.

"Sahitya Akademi will offer a discount of 15 percent on sale price of books to all genuine Metro commuters on display of Delhi Metro smart cards at the proposed book shops," the statement said.

Additionally, the bookshops will allow the display and sale of Delhi Metro publications.

"Similarly, Delhi Metro will be provided space for setting up stalls for the promotion of smart cards during book fairs/exhibitions organised by Sahitya Akademi."

Hoping that more pop-up bookstores offering a wide range of books by multiple publishers also start popping up across other metro stations.
