"Kamladityya Construction Pvt Ltd has been awarded the contract for the construction and maintenance of the Vice President Enclave": CPWD official told PTI.
The Supreme Court was hearing a petition challenging the change in land use of plot number one, from recreational area to residential. New residence of the Vice President will be constructed there.
The Prime Minister Narendra Modi said the new defence office complexes are going to make the working of our security forces more convenient.
‘Reviewed the status of ongoing construction works of Central Vista Avenue project… Citizens will get an avenue they will be proud of,’ Union minister Hardeep Singh Puri said
The Delhi High Court had earlier rejected a PIL seeking to halt construction work of the Central Vista project in view of the COVID pandemic
Central Vista Project: The Union government says Rs 20,000 crore is gross rough estimate of all the planned development/redevelopment works under the project.
The cost of the Central Vista project is Rs 20,000 crore, which with the government’s total annual tax revenue of 20 lakh crore works out to only 0.25 per cent of the tax revenue every year.
The court said under the contract awarded to the Shapoorji Pallonji Group, work had to be completed by November 2021 and, therefore, it should be allowed to continue.
The Central Vista project includes the construction of a new Parliament House, Prime Minister’s residence, Vice President’s residence, Central Secretariat among other government offices.
Poor countries are helping India in their own way, but Prime Minister Narendra Modi is not ready to stop the ambitious project of Central Vista worth Rs 20,000 crore, said Shiv Sena.
The Ministry of Environment has already granted the clearance for the expansion and renovation of the existing Parliament building, which is part of the Rs-13,450 crore Central Vista Redevelopment Project.
The Rajpath redevelopment project includes large scale stonework, construction of underpasses, underground amenities blocks, and horticulture work.
The Centra Vista Project announced in September 2019 envisages a new triangular Parliament building, with seating capacity for 900 to 1,200 MPs
An official says that since the outlook of the new building will be similar to the existing one, getting permission from the Heritage Conservation Committee should be easy
'We hold that there are no infirmities in clearances given, change in land use,' a three-judge bench of the court said in a majority verdict.
The common Central Secretariat is likely to be built by 2024 under the project against which various pleas have been filed.
According to the plan, a tunnel would be constructed to connect the building with chambers of MPs in the Parliament complex.
