It will also include a few features sections every day from various interest areas such as cars and bikes, health and lifestyle, religion and spirituality among others.  
'Delhi on the Go' has tied up with Marwah Studios as their media partner and Radio Noida 107.4 FM as their official radio partner.
Commenting on their association with 'Delhi On The Go', Sandeep Marwah, founder, Film City and Marwah Studios, said “ It is very rare and remarkable to find young entrepreneurs working for a social cause and community building , I wish them all the best."
