The festival has set a very high standard, globally, with its unique showcase of our nation’s rich culture and heritage, said Piyush Goyal, Union Minister of Commerce & Industry, Consumer Affairs & Food & Public Distribution and Textiles. Indeed, it has proven to be an incredible experience for over 1,50,000 visitors, he said.   
“Even more commendable are the opportunities that the festival created, post-COVID, which is testimony to how we are collaboratively moving towards a New India. I hope that corporates such as Red Fort’s Monument Mitra, Dalmia Bharat Limited, will join us as we strengthen our focus on the welfare of our people without losing sight of our glorious legacies,” Goyal said.
Red Fort Festival – Bharat Bhagya Vidhata is India’s first large-scale cultural event, conceptualized as part of the Government of India’s Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav initiative to celebrate the 75 glorious years of India’s independence. As a result of its rising popularity, the festival will now be an annual event, while its grandeur projection – Mathrubhumi – will be a permanent fixture at the Red Fort.
“We have come a long way from being bestowed the honour of being Red Fort’s Monument Mitra, to conceptualising and making our path breaking initiative ‘Red Fort Festival – Bharat Bhagya Vidhata’ a resounding success,” said Puneet Dalmia, Managing Director, Dalmia Bharat Limited. 
With an aim to amplify India’s rich cultural prowess, Monument Mitra, Dalmia Bharat Limited is hosting a spectacular light and sound show this summer at the Red Fort. Additionally, the monument’s visitor center will also see an exclusive launch.
