The concept of organising Aadi Mahotsav in major cities has proved to be  a boon for tribal artisans by eliminating the middle man and providing direct access to large markets, otherwise impossible to reach for them. In line with the national aspiration to go cashless, the tribal merchandise stalls will be accepting payment through major credit/debit cards.

26 such festivals are planned to be organised during the current financial year.  Out of which, 8 festivals have been already organised at Shimla, Ooty, Leh-Ladakh, Visakhapatnam, Noida, Indore, Pune and Bhubaneswar wherein about 900 tribal artisans participated.

The annual Aadi Mahotsav – National Tribal Festival is organised by TRIFED an organisation of Ministry of Tribal Affairs, Government of India. The idea is to provide direct market access to the tribal master-craftsmen and women in large metros and State capitals.

The inaugural ceremony of the event will be graced by the Union Minister for Home Affairs Shri Amit Shah as Chief Guest and the Union Minister for Tribal Affairs Shri Arjun Munda will preside. The Minister of State for Tribal Affairs, Smt. Renuka Singh Saruta will be the Guest of Honour.
