The Hindustan Times (A. Dutta: May 4, 2021):

The buildings, as part of Central Vista, also include a Common Central Secretariat and the Special Protection Group (SPG) building.

The Vice President’s, and Prime Minister’s new residences are scheduled to be completed by May and December 2022, respectively, according to Central Public Works Department (CPWD), the nodal agency for the Central Vista Project, as the environment ministry’s expert appraisal committee (EAC) has granted the necessary clearance for the rest of the buildings under the plan.

The buildings also include a Common Central Secretariat and the Special Protection Group (SPG) building.

According to the CPWD’s submission to the ministry, the work on the new Parliament has been scheduled to be completed by November 2022, the vice-president’s enclave by May 2022, and the PM’s residence and the SPG building by December 2022.

The cost of project (Central Vista), which also includes a Common Central Secretariat, has been estimated at Rs.13,450 crore.

The plan, being handled by the Union ministry of housing and urban affairs, involves having a new Parliament building in place by India’s 75th Independence Day in 2022, while the project, which includes constructing 11 administrative buildings to house all the government ministries, is slated to be finished by 2024.

Tata Projects Limited was tasked with the construction of the new Parliament complex on September 29, 2020.

The environment ministry’s expert appraisal committee (EAC) meeting, held on April 13, the minutes of which were made public on Monday, said, “The EAC (Infra-2)...recommended granting environmental clearance to the project subject to the following specific conditions and other Standard EC Conditions as specified by the Ministry vide OM dated 4th January, 2019 for the said project/activity, while considering for accord of environmental clearance.”

In December 2020, the EAC conditionally approved new terms of reference for the development or redevelopment of common central secretariat buildings a central conference centre, the prime minister’s residence, vice-president’s enclave and a building for the Special Protection Group (SPG).

Under the Central Vista project, the Prime Minister’s residence will be shifted behind the existing South Block, while the V-P’s residence is proposed to be relocated behind North Block.

The plan also includes razing buildings like Shastri Bhawan, Udyog Bhawan and Krishi Bhawan that house important government ministries to build a common secretariat for roughly 70,000 central government employees who are currently located across 30 buildings.

The EAC added that there will be ample provision for greenery.“As proposed, at least 4,918 trees to be maintained within the project site during the operation phase of the project. The landscape planning should include plantation of native species. A minimum of 1 tree for every 80 sqm of land should be planted and maintained. The existing trees will be counted for this purpose. The species with heavy foliage, broad leaves and wide canopy cover are desirable. Water intensive and/or invasive species should not be used for landscaping,” it noted.  (contd.)

It looks like the Govt. is revamping the Capital region in New Delhi, comprising many important official buildings which had over time become inadequate and started to crumble.

Only a few years ago, I read in the newspapers about the roof in the Parliament building in New Delhi leaking in several places during rain, and the Parliament Speaker had appointed a multiparty committee to find ways to fix the leaky roof and restore the integrity of structure.

This new project will take care of deficiencies and lack of Govt. buildings in the Capital.

Most of Govt. buildings in the Capital are old (50, 60, 70 yrs. old), needing serious refurbishing, reconstruction etc. immediately. Here is more on this in the following (old NDTV news).

New Delhi: Law Makers had the first hand experience of the Monsoon today with the Lok Sabha witnessing a major leakage in the ceiling.

Though senior BJP member Rajiv Pratap Rudy drew the attention of KV Thomas who was in the chair, he sought to ignore it and continued with the discussion on General Budget.

"This is being looked into. Let the discussion continue," the Chair ruled when Mr Rudy said "members have pointed out leakage at the ceiling" of the historic building.

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley who is expected to reply to the two-day debate tomorrow was also present in the House.
