A new parliament building is going to be built after almost 100 years. 865 crore rupees are being spent on this project. The architect of Ahmedabad, Bimal Patel, who has designed many important projects, has designed the new Parliament building. We learned from Bimal Patel that what is special in the project …

First of all, know why there was a need to create a new parliament?
The Parliament House is now outdated, requiring repairing in many places. All things like air conditioners, audio-visual systems, ventilation and electricity need to be changed. At the same time, sitting capacity has reached maximum level in Rajya Sabha and Lok Sabha. Because of this new building is necessary. The offices of the ministries are also at different places in Delhi. In the new construction, it is also preferred that all the ministries should be in one place.

What is Central Vista?

New Delhi came into existence in 1911 after construction on the design of British architect Edwin Lutyens. After this, Parliament House was built between 1921-27. Then the area around Rajpath, three kilometers from India Gate to Rashtrapati Bhavan, was identified for new construction. It was named ‘Central Vista’. Since then this area of ​​Lutyens Zone in New Delhi has been known as Central Vista. Now the renovation and new construction which is going to happen, has also been named by the Central Government as Central Vista Project.

Tata gets contract

In addition to the new parliament under the project, 10 buildings will be built around India Gate, which will have offices of 51 ministries.

Newer old buildings will give a diamond look
In this entire project, two buildings will be built in Triangle shape on either side of the old building. The old Parliament House is round in shape, while the new Parliament will be triangular in shape. Due to this, when looking at new and old buildings together, a diamond look will be seen.
