This is for the people who spread fake information on a transparent initiative to build Inspiring modern facilities for Indian govt offices.
Central Vista was originally designed 100 years ago in 1920 by famous British Town Planning Architect - Edwin Lutyens.
The only objective that time was to build a home for India's Viceroy and all "revenue collection" office buildings as per British Monarchy structure.
Including Parliament building, entire central vista area has many buildings older than 100 years.
the need for new parliament building was raised by many MPs in the last 25-30 years. There was an attempt even in 2012 during UPA government. This was the time when Delhi was already facing common wealth games scam and this proposal didn't proceed further.
Current facilities has following serious concerns
❌ Not Earthquake proof
❌ Not Disabled Friendly
❌ Fire protection systems are not fully implemented
❌ Emergency exits not available
❌ 30/50 Ministry offices spread all over delhi
❌ No private offices for all MPs
❌ Not possible to add even single additional seat in Lok sabha
❌ Joint sessions of Loksabha & Rajyasabha are conducted using plastic chairs
❌ Toilets and Floors need complete overhaul as drainage wasn't planned well
Preparation of plan for central vista started in the year 2019 and first draft was published in 2020.
The new design took inspiration from some of world's famous government office complex like Australia and France.
The new plan provides
🔆 Entire re-structuring of existing central Vista including long term preservation plan for current parliament building
🔆 Loksabha with 1000 seats capacity

The prime minister office is just one of the many facilities that's being built under Central Vista project.
So far contract was given only for ₹1,338 cr to develop the Avenue area near India gate.
If there is reorganisation of Loksabha (in terms of members, now 543 based on 1971 census, max-552 & it was 500 in 1950), there will no space for additional members.
The proposed LS+RS seating will be Two members/table.
