Parliament
New Delhi, Aug 14: A good news that would for sure make the MPs feel at the seventh heaven is the complete makeover of their subsidised acommodations. The House Committee of the Parliament has approved an urban development ministry proposal to demolish the existing two-storey buildings on North and South Avenue and replace them with swanky, hi-tech three-storey apartments.

"We have seen the plan. The construction will be in a phased manner as it is impossible to accommodate more than 350 MPs residing on these two roads elsewhere during construction period," former House Committee chairman JP Aggarwal said.

The proposed redevelopment plan will have a total of 414 flats - all four bedroom flats with attached servant's room and lift. The major makeover buildings will also have a community hall and dispensary.

Central Public Works Department spends Rs 5 crore annually to maintain the flats on the two roads that came up sometime in 1930. UD ministry will soon send the plan to Delhi Urban Arts Commission and Prime Minister's Office for approval.
