All workers involved in the construction of Centra Vista project will be given a certificate about their role and participation in the project. The Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi who visited the construction site on Sunday gave instruction to the concerned officials to this effect.
He also said that once the construction work is complete, a digital archive for all construction workers engaged at the site must be set-up, which should reflect their personal details including their name, the name of the place they belong to, their picture and should recognize their contribution to the construction work.
Prime Minister ascertained the progress of the work being carried out at the site, and laid emphasis on timely completion of the project.
It may be recalled here that the Delhi High Court on May 31 dismissed a plea against the ongoing construction activities of the Central Vista Redevelopment project and terming the Public Interest Litigation (PIL) as “illegal motive” to halt the construction work.

The proposed plan includes retrofitting the existing circular Parliament building with the new proposed triangular building for Parliament, so as to have the two buildings as an “ensemble” and indicated it would factor in earthquake safety, given the frequent earthquakes witnessed in the national capital.
