Though the project was cleared by the central vista committee and the heritage conservation committee, DUAC didn’t find the project acceptable. DUAC observed that a comprehensive master plan for the overall complex needed to be prepared and no existing road network should be changed

The Delhi Urban Art Commission has rejected the design for the National War Museum saying that the design was unsuitable for the location and not in conformity with the surroundings. DUAC advises the Government in the matter of preserving, developing and maintaining the aesthetic quality of urban and environmental design within Delhi. This decision puts the future of the project in jeopardy. Though the project was cleared by the central vista committee and the heritage conservation committee, DUAC didn’t find the project acceptable. DUAC observed that a comprehensive master plan for the overall complex needed to be prepared and no existing road network should be changed.

In 2012, the government conceded the long-standing demand of the Indian Armed Forces for a National War Memorial and decided to build a war memorial in the Princess Park in the Lutyens Zone near India Gate. In October 2015, the cabinet passed the proposal to build the war memorial and the cost of the project was estimated at Rs 500 crore. The design for the memorial was proposed to be selected after holding two stage Global Architectural Competition for which the government received 268 entries.
