New defence complexes stand for new India & will strengthen Army: PM Modi
Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said new defence complexes stand for new India and will strengthen the Army. Mr Modi inaugurated the Defence Offices Complexes at Kasturba Gandhi Marg and Africa Avenue in New Delhi today. He visited the Defence Office Complex at Africa Avenue and interacted with the officers of the Army, Navy, Air Force and Civilians.
The new Defence Office Complexes are state-of-the-art and energy efficient, with comprehensive security management measures. One of the defining features of these buildings is the use of new and sustainable construction technology called Light gauge steel frame, which reduced construction time from 30 to 24 months. The buildings utilize resource efficient green technology and promote environment friendly practices. The new Defence Offices Complexes will accommodate around 7,000 officials of Defence ministry and Armed Forces, including Army, Navy and Air Force. The buildings will provide modern, secure and functional working spaces. An Integrated Command and Control Centre has been established for managing building operations.
