Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the multi-storeyed flats for Members of Parliament at national capital New Delhi's Bishambar Das Marg locality. Here are some of the amenities that the MPs will get in their new homes.
The new flats have four bedrooms, offices for the MP and his or her secretary and parking spaces and are centrally air-conditioned.
In addition, the flats have elevators that connect the basement parking, the ground floor office and living spaces and the first floor bedrooms.
Several green building initiatives have been incorporated in the construction, including bricks made from fly ash and construction and demolition waste, double glazed windows for thermal insulation and energy efficiency, energy efficient LED light fittings.
The building comes with occupancy-based sensors for light control, air conditioners with VRV system for low power consumption, low flow fixtures for conservation of water, rainwater harvesting system and rooftop solar plant.
Eight old bungalows, which were more than 80 years old, have been redeveloped to construct 76 flats.
The construction of these flats has been completed with savings of about 14 percent from the sanctioned cost and without time overrun despite the impact of Covid-19.
These residences have been built within 27 months on a cost of Rs 188 crores, in three towers named after the rivers Ganga, Yamuna and Saraswati.
The complex premises includes a community centre, guest house, internal and external water supply, sanitary installation and bulk services like overhead tank without independent staging.
The complex premises also includes electrical substation, sewerage treatment plant, lifts, firefighting system, CCTV, fire sprinkler system, UPS works, DG sets, intercom & telephone system, video door phone
