The closure of the Taj Mahal has dealt a major blow to the Petha business of Agra. Nearly a thousand shops in Tajganj, Fatehabad Road, Highway are closed. The tourists are not coming, so there is no sale. 10 factories have also been closed again after opening. Petha traders say that 60 per cent of their business is dependent on tourists.

Pethe has around 450 factories and 2500 retail shops in the city. There are around 250 in Noori Darwaza alone. The business has a turnover of about 250 crores. Due to lack of sales, the businessmen also started to collect the work.

He says that the atmosphere of doing business is not being created right now. 60 per cent of sales are mainly dependent on tourists while all the monuments in the city including the Taj Mahal are closed. The second reason is the humid heat. This leaves less customers.

Petha businessman Rajesh Bansal said that I saw less benefit and more in opening the factory. Even 50 kg of goods was not consumed. Six quintals of goods are sold on normal days. This led to the closure.

Shahid Bhagat Singh Cottage Association President Rajesh Aggarwal said that Pethe’s business is dependent on tourists. Ten factories have been closed in the city, about a thousand shops around the monuments are also closed.
