CW Projects - New Parliament Building

So much has changed in our country in the last 100 years. We were able to break free from the British rule almost 73 years ago, but some things they left behind stuck with us. The Parliament building is one such thing. The structure was designed by the British, the foundation was laid by the British and the inauguration was done by the British. That is about to change now as the Modi government announced the construction of the new Parliament building which will honour India’s cultural diversity and it’s journey to becoming the largest democracy in the world.

Features:
The new parliament building will be a triangular structure spanning over an area of 64,400 sq. mts. It is expected to be completed by 2022, which is the year independent India turns 75 years old. One of the most unique features of this new parliament building is the grand constitution hall showcasing India’s heritage and cultural diversity. This hall is set to honour the works of Indian artisans and sculptures as a symbol of Atmanirbhar Bharat. The seating of the new parliament building is increased by 150% as compared to the old parliament building. Between the two halls, the building has a seating capacity of 1272 MPs (for graphic info- 888 in Lok sabha and 384 in Rajya Sabha). The building will also have lush amenities like a lounge for MPs, library, multiple committee rooms, dining area and ample of parking space. The new building will not have central hall like the old building in view of creating a space maximising structure. Another interesting aspect of the building is that it is an eco-friendly green construction which is said to consume 30% less electricity. The estimated cost of the project is Rs 970 cr. Tata Projects Ltd has won the bid for this project and will be the ones behind the creation of this magnanimous structure.
