Why not a new New Delhi?
This refers to the ambitious plan to build a most modern and spacious building for Parliament
This refers to the ambitious plan to build a most modern and spacious building for Parliament, and a composite big complex to house offices of all the central ministries at one place.
All this coupled with other related plans like to develop Rajpath and other areas of Lutyen's New Delhi will cost very heavily to the exchequer.
Presently capital-city New Delhi has become over-saturated and unplanned with so many new buildings being erected from time to time, in comparison to the originally systematically planned New Delhi way back in the year 1931.
Any heavy expenditure like on a new Parliament House in outdated capital-city will be like spending on a costly silky patchwork on an old costume.
Best is to develop an altogether new well-planned capital-city of India somewhere in middle of the country to be almost equi-distant from remote corners of India and may also serve as economic capital of India.
Delhi then be expanded to be a full state by taking some neighbouring areas bordering Uttar Pradesh and Haryana.
