  • Lt Governor Anil Baijal today inaugurated the project, alongside a beautified site underneath the Mahipalpur flyover in south Delhi, ahead of the Indo-ASEAN summit here.
  • The most important feature of the development project is that the replica of the Qutab Minar has been produced from the waste material lying at SDMC stores.
  • Termed 'Waste to Art', it is one-of-its-kind installation in the capital.
  • The cost of replica is Rs 16 lakh whereas the total cost of the beautification and development is Rs 3.50 crore.
  • In an unprecedented event, leaders from all 10 ASEAN countries will be attending the Republic Day celebrations at Rajpath on January 26. A host of commemorative events are being organise to mark 25 years of Indo-ASEAN ties.
  • Since the road is under the jurisdiction of the NHAI, a request was made to allow the SDMC to undertake the redevelopment of the space under the Mahipalpur flyover and the rotary leading to the IGIA.
  • The plan, involving construction of boundary wall with designer grills, internal walkways, fixing of 750 bollards & and 800 floodlights, landscaping, plantation, etc., was agreed to be provided at the site.
  • The work on the entire project, spanning an area of 2.34 acres has been completed in 17 days.
