In line with its new appearance, the renovated Rajpath and Central Vista lawns in the centre of Delhi will soon be known by a new name. In keeping with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s push to get rid of names and symbols that are reminiscent of the British era, the entire area has been renamed Kartavya Path (Path of Duty). Thursday is anticipated to be the day of the inauguration. Vijay Chowk to India Gate are all located within the Central Vista.
The proposal for the construction of the “Executive Enclave,” which will house the new Prime Minister’s Office and Cabinet Secretariat, recently received environmental clearance from the Delhi State Environment Impact Assessment Authority. The ambitious Central Vista redevelopment plan of the Narendra Modi administration’s first project to be finished is the revamped avenue.According to sources, the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs is putting together the proposal.
The change comes a few days after the government decided to replace the King’s Cross on the Indian Navy’s emblem with a drawing of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj’s Rajmudra. Initial reports state that Kartavya Path will be the name of the road between Netaji Statue and the Rashtrapati Bhavan.
The choice is being seen as New Delhi’s most recent effort to destroy the colonial mindset. Rajpath, which literally means “King’s Way” or “Kingsway,” was named in honour of the Indian Emperor George V, who had visited Delhi in 1911 and was officially acknowledged as the capital of British India by the British Raj. New images of the redeveloped stretch, which show red-granite walkways, lawns, and designated vending zones, have been posted on Twitter by news agency ANI.
