The Parliament is a prime example of the strength of the Indian democratic system. The Constitution of India was adopted in the current structure, which functioned as independent India’s first Parliament. Therefore, preserving and revitalising its rich past is a matter of national significance. The new Parliament Building, which is an emblem of India’s democratic spirit, is located in the centre of Central Vista.
Over the years, the parliamentary activities have significantly increased and the original one was displaying signs of distress and overuse and unable to satisfy the demands for space, amenities, and technology.
