PM Narendra Modi lays foundation stone of new Parliament building near India Gate

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday (December 10, 2020) laid the foundation stone of new Parliament building in the national capital. He will also perform the Bhoomi Pujan ceremony for the new Parliament House building.

NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday (December 10, 2020) laid the foundation stone of the new Parliament building in the national capital. He also performed the ”Bhoomi Pujan” ceremony for the new Parliament House building.

PM Modi attended the function near India Gate physically. The Prime Minister also unveiled a plaque to mark the foundation stone laying ceremony of the new Parliament Building in Delhi which will be constructed near the India Gate.

The new Parliament building, which will be constructed by 2022, will be spread across 64,500 sq metres. According to the government sources, the new building will replace the existing 93 years old Parliament house. 

Several Union Cabinet Ministers and Ministers of State and some other dignitaries also attended the Bhoomi Pujan ceremony. Tata Trust Chairman Ratan Tata, Union Minister HS Puri, Dy Chairman of Rajya Sabha Harivansh and several religious leaders were also present during the event. 

The religious leaders who attended the foundation stone laying ceremony of the new Parliament building performed ‘Sarva Dharma Prarthana’.

Tata Projects Ltd has been given the contract for the project.

The new building is an intrinsic part of the vision of ‘Aatmanirbhar Bharat’. It will be a landmark opportunity to build peoples’ Parliament for the first time after independence, one which will match the needs and aspirations of ‘New India’ in the 75th anniversary of independence in 2022.

The building will be modern, state-of-the-art and energy-efficient, with highly non-obtrusive security facilities to be built as a triangular-shaped building, adjacent to the present Parliament. Lok Sabha will be 3 times of the existing size and Rajya Sabha will be substantially bigger.

The interiors of the new building will showcase a rich blend of Indian culture and the diversity of our regional arts, crafts, textiles, and architecture. The design plan includes space for a magnificent Central Constitutional Gallery, which will be accessible to the public.

The construction of the building will utilize resource-efficient green technology, promote environmentally friendly practices, generate employment opportunities and contribute towards economic revitalization. It will have high-quality acoustics and audio-visual facilities, improved and comfortable seating arrangements, effective and inclusive emergency evacuation provisions.

The building will comply with the highest structural safety standards, including adherence to Seismic Zone 5 requirements and is designed for ease of maintenance and operations.
