opposite Vidhan Sabha in Lucknow, is the new seat of power, replacing the five-storey ‘Shastri Bhawan’ which for decades has housed the Chief Minister’s office.
The need for the building was felt as the 90-year-old Vidhan Bhawan lacked sufficient space to accommodate offices of increasing number of officers and employees.
The state of the art building was inaugurated on October 03, 2016 by the then Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Akhilesh Yadav. It houses both The Chief Minister and the chief secretary and More than 1,300 officials and government employees, in the building which has three blocks.
The new building has three blocks — A, B and C. The ‘B’ block is the main building and houses both the chief minister and the chief secretary’s office. The new Chief Minister Office is situated on the fifth floor — the topmost floor of B block.
The floor also has conference rooms, video-conferencing rooms, Cabinet lounges, office staff rooms and room for the principal secretary to the chief minister among others. It also has a special waiting lounge for the members of legislative assembly. The first floor of B block has the chief secretary’s office with a 100-seat conference room.
This floor also has offices of the civil aviation secretary and principal secretary . While the second and third floors of the block have rooms for section officers and additional secretaries, the fourth floor would accommodate principal secretary, secretaries, special secretaries to the chief minister and another waiting lounge.
We at Momemtum were proud to supply Herman Miller Furniture and Featherlite furniture (the Industry Leaders in the Ergonomic Furniture space) for the B Block of this Prestigious Building to ensure efficient workspaces for the esteemed Ministerial Cabinet of the U.P. State and become a little part of history of our city Lucknow.
