The foundation stone for the construction of the New Parliament building of India has been laid by Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi on 10 December 2020. Its construction is plot no. It has been done at 118 Parliament Street (New Delhi) and this new Parliament building is an important part of the Vision of Aatmanirbhar (Self-reliant) India.
The building will be triangular in shape and will be modern, state of the art, as well as energy-efficient, with impregnable security. The new Parliament will be about three times larger than the present Parliament House, whose floor area will be approximately 8500 square meters and the new Parliament House will be of 4-storey building.
First of all, the suggestion of the creation of Parliament in our country or we can also say that it was started in the year 2010 and the most important reason behind this is that the building of the present Parliament House is almost 93 years old.
Along with this, there is enough space for house members and their staff at present. Given the structure of the Future Lok Sabha of India, the present Parliament House will be outdated in the coming few years and will prove to be more effective in adjusting the number of MPs of the future. In view of all these circumstances, the Central Government launched the Central Vista Redevelopment Project in the year 2019.
Under the Central Vista Redevelopment Project, the improvement of the last RAJPAT from Rashtrapati Bhavan (President Of India Office) to India Gate which is about 3 km in length, construction of new office and residential building of the Prime Minister, construction of new Parliament building is also included in it.
