Glimpses of Central Vista Project

The central government recently released images of the new Parliament building, which is scheduled to be finished by the end of January. The new facility can now accommodate the increasing number of elected representatives over the last few decades. PM Narendra Modi laid the groundwork for this ambitious project in 2020. The Parliament is being built with larger halls, a library, and plenty of parking. Furthermore, the new Parliament's meeting rooms and offices will be outfitted with cutting- edge technology.

The Central Vista project includes the new Parliament building. While media reports claim that one portion of the upcoming Budget session will be held in the new building, the government has yet to release any information on the subject.

‘Council House’ of 1927

The current Parliament building was opened with great fanfare on January 18, 1927, by then-Viceroy Lord Irwin. According to archival documents, the magnificent structure was known as the Council House at the time. The opening of the Parliament House building was widely publicised at the time, according to the news agency PTI. The sprawling structure covered nearly six acres, had a diameter of 560 feet, and a circumference of one-third of a mile. Sir Herbert Baker, who was chosen along with Sir Edwin Lutyens to design the new imperial capital in Delhi, designed the existing structure.
