The New Parliament Building will be modern, state-of-the-art and energy efficient, with highly non-obtrusive security facilities to be built as a triangular-shaped building, adjacent to the present Parliament.
Lok Sabha will be three times of the existing size and the Rajya Sabha will be substantially bigger.
The interiors of the new building will showcase a rich blend of Indian culture and diversity of our regional arts, crafts, textiles and architecture.
The design plan includes space for a magnificent Central Constitutional Gallery, which will be accessible to the public.
The construction of new Parliament Building will utilise the resource-efficient green technology, promote environment-friendly practices, generate employment opportunities and contribute towards economic revitalisation.
The four-storied new Parliament Building would be built in an area of 64,500 sqm at an estimated cost of Rs 971 crore.
