The construction of another Tripura Bhavan in New Delhi has progressed a long way. Delhi Development Authority has allotted 2,930 sq. mtrs of land for the Institutional Land Branch.
This land has been allotted in Plot No. 3 of Sector 17, Dwarka, New Delhi. The Deputy Director (IL) of Delhi Development Authority Institutional Land Branch informed this in a letter to the Special Chief Residence Commissioner of Tripura Bhavan in New Delhi on Tuesday.
On September 15, Chief Minister Dr. Manik Saha spoke to Lt Governor of Delhi VK Saxena to allocate the land required for construction of a new Tripura Bhavan in New Delhi.
After receiving this news, Chief Minister Dr. Saha said, the matter is very happy news for the people of the state. One of the two proposed plots has already been allotted and he hoped the other would be done soon.
He thanked the Lieutenant Governor of Delhi for responding to this proposal of the state government.
Currently there are two Tripura Bhavan in New Delhi. The scale of those buildings is very small. Those two Tripura buildings are not able to handle the needs of the people of the state.
Many people of the state including patients and students are under pressure in the two Tripura Bhavans.
Many people are not getting a shelter even if they are looking for a house for urgent needs. Keeping in mind the growing demand, the state government has set a target of constructing a large-scale Tripura Bhavan in New Delhi.
The place marked in Dwarka near Delhi Airport. It is a twenty minute drive from the airport. Sector Seventeen Metro Station is near to that plot.
The state government wants to take both the plots there for better connectivity. The state government wants to build Tripura Bhavan in one and a half acres of land.
