Paving way for Telangana Chief Minister KCR's dream to have a new Secretariat with all the amenities, Telangana High Court gave its nod to demolish the old secretariat and construct a new Secretariat.

Going by the court orders, teh demolishing works was kickstarted on Tuesday night. The Police were deployed in large numbers to oversee the work and the Secretariat road was closed completely.

Amid, this, CM KCR approved a new design for the Secretariat. The design was prepared by award-winning Mumbai architect Hafeez Contractor who is based out of Mumbai.

The new design was prepared by the architect without any issues with 'vaastu' as Telangana CM KCR is an evident follower of vaastu.

As per the details, the new Secretariat will be constructed with an approximated cost of Rs 400-500 crore which will be spread in an area of seven lakh square feet. The construction will be a six-storey building. The new building will be accommodating the offices of Ministers and their secretaries.

Out of the 27 cares, only a 20 percent land will be used for the new Secretariat, while the remaining land will be used for vehicle parking and landscapes. It is believed that the Secretariat will be constructed in a way to accommodate as many as 800 vehicles at a  time without any issues.
