We have introduced a number of reforms to meet national energy needs based on the Energy Vision as laid out by Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, covering energy access, energy efficiency, energy sustainability, energy security and energy justice. India is advocating for Energy Justice on every global platform.

The set of buildings that we now refer to as Central Vista were conceptualized sometime around 1910. The building now was never designed to be Parliament. It was designed to be a council house of a colonial power.

The surge in energy prices poses significant near-term risks to global inflation and, if sustained, could also weigh on growth in energy-importing countries.
