Foundation stone for a new Parliament building in Delhi will likely be laid by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the first half of December. Construction for the new Parliament building, not far from the old complex, is expected to be completed in 21 months from the commencement of construction work.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi could lay the foundation stone for the new Parliament building on December 10, said news agency PTI quoting sources. However, final confirmation on the date is subject to the Prime Minister’s availability.

The new Parliament building will have separate offices for all MPs, equipped with technology interfaces aimed at creating ‘paperless offices’. In addition, the new Parliament building will also have a Constitution Hall, a lounge for MPs, multiple committee rooms, dining areas, parking space and a library.
