Government spent Rs 238 cr on the new parliament building

The government has spent Rs 238 crore on a new Parliament building and Rs 63 crore on the Centre Vista Avenue construction, cites Lok Sabha.

Minister of State for Housing and Urban Affairs Kaushal Kishore informed the media that works on a new parliament building, estimated to cost Rs 971 crore, is underway and will be finished by October 2022.

He also informed that the redevelopment of Central Vista Avenue, which runs from Rashtrapati Bhavan to India Gate, will cost Rs 608 crore and take until November to complete.

The anticipated costs for these two projects for fiscal year 2022 are Rs 1,289 crore.

In response to another query, the minister clarified that the details of rental premises or area-wise hired by various establishments of the government, as well as the expense incurred on those private rental premises since the beginning of the lease agreement, are not kept centrally.

The government had previously stated that the current Central Vista redevelopment project, which includes the construction of ten new Secretariat buildings, will save the government Rs 1,000 crore in rent.

A new triangular parliament building, a common central secretariat, a 3 km long Rajpath from Rashtrapati Bhavan to India Gate, a new prime minister house and the Prime Minister Office (PMO), and a new Vice President Enclave are all part of the Central Vista reconstruction project.
