New Parliament building, costing around Rs 970 crore, to be one-and-a-half times larger in size, capacity


Design of the new proposed Parliament structure ?by HCP Design, Planning and Management

Located next to the existing Parliament building in New Delhi, the new design of the new Parliament building is around one-and-a-half times larger in size and capacity. Construction of the new Parliament would begin in December and would be completed by 2022. The building would serve as a landmark to commemorate 75th year of Indian independence.


?The total built-up area of the proposed Parliament, which is spread over four floors, is about 64,500 sq.mt that is 17,000 sq.mt more than the existing one. The estimated cost of construction of the new Parliament building is Rs 971 crore, which would be constructed by Tata Projects Limited.


HCP Design, Planning and Management, an Ahmedabad-based architecture firm, which was selected in 2019 by the government to design the new Parliament and redevelop the area around the Central Vista, has completed drafting the detailed and construction-ready design of the new Parliament building in New Delhi.


The proposed four-storey structure would appear to be in a triangular shape and would consist of three areas: Lok Sabha hall, Rajya Sabha Hall and the central lounge constructed around an open courtyard.


The Lok Sabha hall, located on the ground floor, would accommodate 888 members, which are 336 more than the current Parliaments maximum strength. The Rajya Sabha hall would accommodate 384 members instead of the current 245-member capacity.


Apart from the parliament halls on the ground floor of the proposed structure, there would be offices for the Prime Minister, Speaker and other Ministers. The above two floors would have more rooms for ministers, a dining hall and a media gallery.

The new car parking area would be able to accommodate around 1,100 cars within the entire parliament complex, including the existing Parliament, library and annexe.

Meanwhile, due to appeals in the Supreme Court against the construction of the new building, the project has been currently withheld. However, after National Mineral Development Corporation (NMDC) seeks NOCs from the fire service department, Airports Authority of India (AAI), Archaeological Survey of India (ASI), followed by approvals from Heritage Conservation Committee and Central (HCCC) and Central Vista Committee (CVC), and submitting the project to Delhi Urban Arts Commission (DUAC) for detailed approval, the project construction could begin with periodic supervision by the municipal body to ensure there are no major changes to the plan.

Former MLA and Member of Parliamentary Board, MPCC Dr Ashish Deshmukh speaking about the nomination filed by Congress MP Shashi Tharoor for the post of Congress President on Friday, said, “Dr Shashi Tharoor is a popular Congress MP who has done remarkable work for the nation at the international level. It’s very welcoming thing that the election of Congress President is being done in a democratic manner. This is an important step for decentralisation in the party and the future of Congress is bright. Soniaji and Rahulji Gandhi contributed a lot to strengthen the party.”

Congress leader Deshmukh added, “This is an important step taken by the Congress elites for the elections in a democratic manner so that the party can take a higher flight. Dr Shashi Tharoor has cordial relations with everyone in the party; he has the ability to give a new direction to the party. I believe that he will be able to handle the responsibility of bringing the Congress to power in the country by taking the party forward with new strength. If he seriously deals with issues like unemployment, industry, agriculture, inflation then Congress will have fruitful days. By doing transparent politics, he will definitely convey the thought of Congress to the people at the grassroots level. If you want a rejuvenated, bigger and dynamic Congress party, Dr. Shashi Tharoor is the right candidate. He has the open support of Congress delegates in 12 states and is getting the support of Congress leaders and activists from all over India. He will be elected for sure.”

Deshmukh informed that Tharoor would be visiting Nagpur on October 1 and 2 to hear out all thoughts of Congress delegates.

The Raaas (2018)

Since The Raaas enchanted and enthralled Nagpur with its quality garba in its first year in 2018, the demand for encore has been reverberating the city. To cater to the huge public demand, the organisers of the king of garbas have decided to continue The Raaas next year on. Like its first year, The Raaas Garba will be presented to Nagpur in association with Nation Next in 2023. Mahesh Kukreja, the key organiser said, “Because of some reasons, we, earlier, thought of giving the event a break.”

He added, “Then COVID-19 struck the world. Now we plan to continue it from next year onwards. While I express my gratitude to Nagpurians to make the event a huge hit, I request the city’s garba revellers to not get fooled as a few garbas are falsely claiming to be The Raaas. We’ll be back next year for sure!”
