What will happen to the Old Parliament Building

The parliament proceedings will move to the new building from tomorrow. The old parliament building has witnessed some historic events, including the adoption of the Constitution.

It was completed in 1927, and is now 96 years old. Over the years, it was found to be inadequate for present day requirements.

Speaking in Lok Sabha, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today paid tributes to "every brick" of the old building and said the MPs will enter the new building with "new hope and confidence".

Old Building Won't Be Demolished ! Government sources say the building won't be demolished and that it will be "retrofitted" to provide more functional spaces for parliamentary events.

"The historic structure will be conserved, as it is an archaeological asset of the country," sources said.

In 2021, the then Union Housing and Urban Affairs Minister Hardeep Singh Puri had told the Rajya Sabha the existing structure would have to be repaired and made available for alternative use The national archives will be shifted to the new parliament building for heritage-sensitive restoration, they said. This will further help the old Parliament building with more space.

Meanwhile, PM Modi has proposed to rename old Parliament as Samvidhan Sadan !
