Conference halls, plush offices, suites, deluxe rooms — all these and more are part of a makeover plan for the RSS headquarters at Keshav Kunj in Jhandewalan.

Sources said the makeover plan, designed by a France-educated Gujarati architect, aims to create a plush office-cum-residential complex that can be used by both RSS pracharaks and guests.

Under the plan, which is awaiting approval of the civic authorities, the renovated RSS headquarters will have 10 blocks. Each block will have four storeys, connected by lifts.

The first block, named Bikri Kendra, will have offices and toilets along with a waiting foyer.

Two other blocks will be called Prant Karyalaya. These blocks will have offices, toilets and multi-purpose rooms. One block will be called Prakashan Bhawan. Another block will be called Bharat Prakashan. It will have four conference halls and offices on the second and fourth floors. Another block will only have conference halls.

One floor will only have suites in the renovated headquarters.

There will be a medical centre in one block called Chikitsalaya with rooms for doctors and bedrooms on the ground floor. The second floor will comprise of deluxe rooms. While the third floor will also have rooms, the fourth floor will house attendants.

There will be a block of flats for residents. The flats will have one drawing room, kitchen, master bedroom with toilet and bathroom. One block has been earmarked for offices.

According to sources, the makeover plan was submitted on December 30 last year to the North Delhi Municipal Corporation. But the corporation said the RSS had not followed it up after that.

            I think I have an idea where it is coming from. I donate 10% of my income to RSS every month. May be you should consider doing that and wonder a little less.
