New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday inaugurated multi-storeyed flats for Members of Parliament, located at Dr BD Marg in Delhi via video conferencing. The Speaker of Lok Sabha Om Birla was present on the occasion.
Eight bungalows, more than 80-years-old, were redeveloped to construct 76 flats. The construction of these flats was completed without time overrun despite the impact of COVID-19, as per a statement by the PMO. About 14 per cent from the sanctioned amount for construction was saved.
“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, occupancy-based sensors for light control, air conditioners with VRV system for low power consumption, low flow fixtures for the conservation of water, rainwater harvesting system and rooftop solar plant,” it added as per news agency ANI.
