New Parliament building to be ready by 2022

A monitoring committee involving various government agencies will oversee day-to-day construction of the new Parliament building, which will start in December and will be completed by October 2022.

During a meeting chaired by Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla in the presence of Union minister Hardeep Singh Puri, it was decided that the monitoring committee will include, among others, officers of Lok Sabha secretariat, ministry of housing and urban affairs, CPWD, NDMC and architect/designer of the project.

“While reviewing various aspects and progress of the project, Birla stressed on smooth coordination and resolving issues between various agencies involved on a regular basis. He emphasised that there should be no compromise in ensuring quality control and timely completion of the work,” an official said.

During the meeting, Birla was briefed about the progress in shifting of facilities and other infrastructure from the area proposed for construction of the new building. The barricading plan and various mitigating measures to control air and noise pollution during the construction process were discussed.
