“For years, there was a demand for a new Parliament building. India needs a modern new Parliament building. The prime minister had stated during the occasion that although the previous structure served the country’s requirements, the new Parliament building will serve the country’s ambitions.
The new facility, which is a 64,500-square-meter building, is a component of the Central Vista project, worth 20,000 crores. The project is expected to cost 971 crore rupees. 2,000 people would be employed directly and another 9,000 indirectly in this earthquake-resistant construction. Almost 1,200 MPs will be able to live in the new structure.
The Transport Bhavan and the Shram Shakti Bhavan will both be replaced by a new office complex. In addition, it will contain a regal Constitution Hall to highlight India’s democratic legacy, a members-only lounge, a library, many meeting rooms, eating places, and plenty of parking.
