The beautification and renovation of Connaught Placehas finally begun with whitewashing of walls, a senior NDMC official said, adding that it would be completed by July before the G20 summit.
NDMC vice chairman Satish Upadhayay said with India presiding over the G20 bloc for a year, the beautification project will enable the New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) to showcase the unique heritage of the city.
The beautification of the historical market was stalled for months due to funds crunch. The State Bank of India, however, agreed to provide financial support under its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) scheme for the project.
The beautification includes painting the outer and inner circles and the radials.
“The renovation work has started. Whitewashing has begun and the entire work shall be completed by July,” Upadhayay said.
