Proposal to relocate Parliament House shelved
New Delhi, Aug 10: The raging debate on whether the Parliament should be shifted from its present iconic building to a new premises, has been buried deep with a decision having been taken against any such move.
Instead a green signal has been given to maintain and develop the existing 85-year old circular structure of the British era.
The debate had started after the building was declared structurally unsafe on a safety audit done by the fire safety and other officials concerned.
Instead of relocation plans are afoot to ensure the safety of the 85-year-old building, which was declared structurally unsafe after an audit last month by fire safety officials and others. A thorough inspection of the building held recently had led to the discovery that the Parliament House complex had not been issued a No Objection Certificate for the last six decades.
