What is Central Vista?

The Central Vista Redevelopment project is a pet project of the Narendra Modi government estimated to cost around Rs 20,000 crore. It aims to redevelop 3.2 km of land around the heart of Central Vista in Lutyens' Delhi which is the administrative centre of the Central government.
