Telangana High Court has applied temporary brakes to Chief Minister K Chandrasekhara Rao’s State-of-The-Art Secretariat but the Government is confident of getting the clearance. Meanwhile, the Proposed Secretariat will see the full play of the Internet of Things (IoT).
The interiors as well as the exteriors of the new complex are being designed in a futuristic way with thermal sensitive and voice-controlled lighting. Due to the Thermal Sensors, the lights would switch on automatically as one walks in and would be switched off as one walks out.
Oscar Concessao and Ponni Concessao of the Chennai-based Oscar and Ponni Architects were entrusted with the task of preparing the designs for the new Secretariat complex. Solar energy will be extensively used to reduce the carbon footprint.
The main entry would be located in the east and there would be a separate entry for the Chief Minister. The Chief Minister’s office would be on the sixth floor. The CMO will have Vaastu compliance with a separate secure entry and drop off for the Chief Minister.
The remaining floors will also house Chief Secretary, GAD, chambers for Minister, various departments along with conference rooms, and a 1000-seater large auditorium.
