Once ready, the new building will house Department of Commerce. The building will accommodate about 1000 officers and staff. While retaining the Central Vista architecture, the Vanijya Bhawan will have all modern technology driven features.
It will be a completely paperless office with state of the art facilities such as smart access control, central air-conditioning, video conferencing, and completely networked systems.
It will be a green building with all required certifications. The new building will be a symbol of not only India’s growing economic might but also the adoption and use of technology in governance.
The Department of Commerce is currently housed in Udyog Bhawan which also houses a large number of other Government of India departments leading to constraint of space.
