India Habitat Centre is a building in the state of New Delhi, India with versatile use. A potpourri of work, commercial and social spaces, the Indian Habitat Centre is India’s most all inclusive convention centre.
The building is a prime location and plays host to cultural and social activities that take place in the city of New Delhi.
Established in the year 1993, this centre was built up by the Central Urban Development Ministry.
An umpteen number of government offices, commercial institutions, cultural and social organisations coupled with a conference hall, an auditorium, a banquet hall, a food court, a health care centre and lastly a guest house is what make up the Indian Habitat Centre.
The city of Jaipur along with the city of Bhopal which lies in the state of Madhya Pradesh are the chosen cities amongst locations in the country where the Indian Habitat Centre has planned to set open its branches.
Indian Habitat Centre has struck and signed an agreement with the National Building Construction Corporation (NBCC) for this agreement already.
What is awaited by Indian Habitat Centre now is to procure land from the state government at concessional rates.
A senior official from the Indian Habitat Centre expressed that other states in the country also stated the wish for the establishment of the Indian Habitat Centre in them.
Establishing the Indian Habitat Centre in Jaipur, Kolkata, Bhopal, Bhubaneshwar and Amrawati has been propounded and the Centre has finalised the cities of Jaipur and Bhopal to witness such construction for public welfare.
Branding and management will be directly under the control of the Indian Habitat Centre whereas National Building Construction Corporation (NBCC) will be taking care and looking after the design and construction of the centres to be built up.
Awaiting the procurement of land at a concessional rate from the state government is the next step that has to be taken care of. After the success of this, a descriptive budget and financial guidelines will be laid down for the project to commence and the construction to be done accordingly.
-As expressed by Mr. Alok Rastogi, Deputy General Manager
The centres that will be built up in the two cities will be well equipped with spaces for office use, organising meetings or conferences in conference halls, banquet hall, a food court to curb the hunger, a health care centre and a guest house.
This is proposed in an almost similar fashion to the existing Indian Habitat Centre as in the state of New Delhi.
It has been stated already that offices will be levied with a rental charge and money will be derived from renting the conference hall etc. for the day to day functioning and maintenance of the Indian Habitat Centre.
The centre will not have to be dependent on external sources, grants received or the government for meeting out its expenses or financing itself. Financing will be done by renting out for all means and happenings in the centre.
