Hyderabad: The 83rd All India Industrial Exhibition, popularly called Numaish, is all set to start Monday, January 1,2024. The 46-day extravaganza is visited by lakhs of people. However, the covid scare may impact the business at the annual trade fair. 

Currently, the active Covid cases in the state stood at 55. Of these infections, 45 were reported from Hyderabad, the venue for Numaish. Last year, the exhibition recorded a footfall of nearly 23 lakh visitors. 

The state health minister Damodar Rajanarasimha has convened a meeting with the officials of the health ministry to review the Covid-19 situation in the state. The government may soon come up with Covid-appropriate guidelines for the Numaish organisers and the people. 
Every year, the exhibition begins on the first day of the new year and continues till the second week of February. It is the largest industrial exhibition in the country. Traders from almost every corner of the country open their stalls here. Last year, due to Covid fears around 1800 stalls were opened at the exhibition. 

The first Numaish was inaugurated by the seventh Nizam Mir Osman Ali Khan. The 10-day Numaish early called as ‘Numaish  Masnuaat-e-Mulki’ was organised at Public Gardens (Bagh-e-Amma) with 50 stalls. It was shifted to Exhibition Grounds in 1946 and since then Numaish has been organised every year except for 1947 and 1948 due to the turmoil in the aftermath of India’s independence.
