The specially customized gift baskets will contain the best of UP’s crafts and products from 13 districts of Uttar Pradesh.  CM has also appealed to the people to exchange one district one product scheme products as Diwali gifts among relatives and friends. In such a way people will help to promote local businesses and products of their district.

This Deepawali, give a special gift to your loved ones that they remember for life and the gift is the famous product of your district. This will have two benefits, on one hand, you will give a gift to remember and, on the other, you will promote the local talent and the product of your district,” the chief minister said in a statement.
