The new Central Vista in Delhi will have a dedicated tunnel road for the movement of Prime Minister from his residence to office and the parliament building, reports a Deccan Herald exclusive. In the redevelopment of the seat of Parliament, special routes are being designed, in the line of American Mall, that will separate the movement of high-risk politicians from the general public. This move is also likely to end the regular traffic blockades and inconvenience caused during the VIP movements.

Pm to have private tunnel to move from residence to parliament

Bimal Patel who’s been planning this said, “Prime Minister's motorcade goes away because he gets a tunnel from his home to his office and perhaps even other places. So, one way in which your free public places from security concerns is to separate out the people who need high security and put them away inside compounds. That’s how the US mall works."

The PM’s house will be shifted near the South Block and Vice-President’s house behind the North Block. The existing offices of defense personnel will be removed and be replaced with Special Protection Group (SPG) office. According to the design, these two blocks, which house several ministries, will be converted into a national museum. South Block will be converted into a museum of “India up to 1857”. “The idea is to make North and South block a grand national museum of our country,” said Patel.

The Central Vista or Rajpath will house 10 new buildings for accommodating between 50,000 to 60,000 government employees. Presently, they are scattered everywhere in the capital. The new arrangement, will save Rs 1000 crore per year that is spent on rent.
