NEW DELHI : A convention centre in Delhi, the venue for the main G20 summit will not have a helipad on its terrace as planned earlier.

As per the minutes of meetings of the Delhi Urban Art Commission (DUAC) held on May 24, the helipad will be replaced with a framework which may be used for solar panels in future.

“The Commission approved the layout and building plans proposal in respect of Redevelopment of Integrated Exhibition cum Convention Centre (IECC) at its meeting held on June 14, 2017," according to the minutes.

“​​​​​​​The Commission noted that the provision of helipad on the terrace has been replaced with framework which may be used for solar panels in future, the same shall be ensured to be screened appropriately," it said.

The DUAC was set up by an Act of Parliament in 1973 to advise the government of India and local bodies on preserving, developing and maintaining the aesthetic quality of urban and environmental design within Delhi.

As part of the Pragati Maidan redevelopment project, the IECC is being built as a state-of the-art complex, and some of its blocks have already been opened. 

The International Museum Expo, inaugurated by PM Narendra Modi, was held at the IECC from May 18-20.

The G20 Leaders' Summit is set to take place in Delhi on September 9-10.

The 18th G20 Heads of State and Government Summit in New Delhi will be a culmination of all the G20 meetings held throughout the year by ministers, senior officials, and the civil society.
