New Delhi, Apr 3 (ANI): Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit inaugurated the multipurpose Thyagaraj Sports Complex, the venue for the netball competition for the Commonwealth Games on Friday.

Built at a cost of Rs.300 crore, it is the most talked about Commonwealth Games venue due to its environment-friendly features.

The state-of-the-art stadium will host events like table tennis, badminton and athletics.

"Thyagaraj (sports) complex is the first green stadium ever built anywhere in the world. Nowadays we are generating energy (electricity) from solar system but after around two months energy will be produced through gas turbines," said Dikshit.

The stadium features effective water management systems such as rainwater harvesting and sewage treatment with two lakh litres a day capacity. (ANI)
