The new Parliament building

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has laid foundations for a huge new Indian parliamentary building, which will be constructed by 2022, will be spread across 64,500 sq metres. The new building will replace the existing 93 years old Parliament house. The new parliament building is the centrepiece of the 20,000-crore Central Vista project to refurbish government buildings and make over a 3-km stretch between the presidential palace Rashtrapati Bhavan to the iconic war memorial India Gate.
