One of India’s largest conglomerates has won the bid to build the country’s new parliament building.

The Tata projects will build the $ 117 million (90 million) building in the heart of the national capital, Delhi.

It will replace the existing colonial-era complex and is expected to be completed by 2022, when India celebrates 75 years of independence.

Critics say the government should spend the money to control the coronavirus pandemic.

India now has more than five million confirmed cases – the second highest number in the world. The country has also reported more than 80,000 deaths from the virus so far.

But the government says a new parliament building is needed as the current one dates back to the 1920s and shows signs of “concern and overuse”.

There has also been an increase in MPs and staff of parliament.

The new building, which will be larger than the current one, will have seats for 1,400 MPs, according to India’s Press Trust news agency.

Reports say it will be a three-story triangular structure.

It is part of a $ 2.7 billion government plan to modernize the old colonial government buildings in Delhi.

The project has been embroiled in controversy, with critics voicing concerns over the aesthetics and costs of the project.

However, the demand for a new parliament building dates back almost a decade with successive parliament speakers

supporting the need for a new parliamentary building.

British architect Herbert Baker built the existing circular parliament building with a large domed hall and completed it in 1927.

Historian Dinyar Patel has written that the building was mocked as if it had been completed.

He says Philip Sassoon, a British social and political figure, once said that the building “looks like a gas meter – which it is!”.

Baker also admitted to defects in his building.

“The dome rising above the central hall, he admitted, was like a ‘basket’ in the box struggling unsuccessfully to appear above the circular frame of the Council House,” wrote Dr. Patel.
