New Delhi: Chief Minister Sukhvinder Singh laid the foundation stone of five storeys ‘Himachal Niketan’ building to be constructed at Dwarka in Delhi.
The ‘Himachal Niketan’ would provide accommodation facilities to the students and visitors from the State in Delhi.
The ‘Himachal Niketan’ building would have two VIP rooms, 36 general rooms exclusively for the students and 40 other general suites. It would also have three room-type dormitories for the staff with a parking facility for 53 vehicles and 87 two-wheelers in the basement.
