Central Vista to get a new look
Navneet Mishra and Mohammad Suaib
There will be no loss of the North and South Blocks under the Modi government's new Central Vista redevelopment project, the work of which is going on at a rapid pace. These will be protected as they are the heritage buildings representing government authority, and in the coming years, both will be retrofitted and turned into museums.
The construction of the Central Vista will change the entire view from Rashtrapati Bhavan to India Gate. Officials associated with this mega project say that work is going on to build a world-class Central Vista keeping in mind the needs of the next 250 years. The urgency of this project can be gauged from the fact that the government has deemed it an essential service amid restrictions due to COVID-19 so that there is no impact on the ongoing construction.
