BHUBANESWAR: The oldest Kalyan Mandap of Capital City at Unit VIII will soon cease to exist as Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) has planned to set up its new headquarters on the area.

The Kalyan Mandap will be demolished in July and construction of the new building would start soon after. There will be no booking of the Mandap after June 30, BMC officials said here on Friday.

The civic body has roped in National Buildings Construction Company Ltd for conceptualising, designing and executing the project that is estimated to cost over `100 crore. The new headquarters would be a modern energy efficient building with a built up space of 1.5 lakh sq ft spanning eight floors.

“The State Government has given its approval to the project. With work commencing in July, the building would be ready within two years,” City Engineer Basanta Parida said.

The new building would house public grievance cell and conveniences, corporators lounge, conference hall, council hall along with offices of Commissioner and other officers.

The present office will turn a zone office dealing with sanitation operations, revenue collection and licensing and other citizen services.
