Vice President lays Foundation Stone of M.S. Flats for MPS of Rajya Sabha
The Vice President of India Shri M. Hamid Ansari laid the Foundation stone of Multi Story Flats for Members of Parliament of Rajya Sabha at a function organized by Rajya Sabha House Committee and Central Public Works Department here today. Addressing on the occasion, Shri Ansari said that laying the Foundation stone is always a pleasant exercise but a very careful one. Praising the efforts of Rajya Sabha and CPWD, he said that it is a happy occasion that the work has been initiated quite diligently at administrative as well as political level. It will be commendable if the project gets completed in the expected execution time. However he said that these are well-planned apartments but where is the space for the visitors who regularly come to meet Members of Parliament. Located on Talkatora Road in Zone-D of the Master Plan 2021, these 14 flats are proposed in a Ground + seven story ‘Y’ shaped block. The cost of the project is Rs. 28.42 crores and the Execution time is 16 months.
