New Delhi, Sept 20: Paryavaran Bhawan of Ministry of Environment and Forests has been renamed as Pandit Deendayal Antyodaya Bhawan. The decision was taken by Government of India on 20th May, 2016.

Earlier, the Ministry of Environment and Forests was a major occupant of the Building and therefore, it was appropriately called ‘Paryavaran Bhawan’. On this occasion Union Minister Urban Development M. Venkaiah Naidu and Minister of State for Minority Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi unveiled the new name Plaque of the Building.

Speaking on the occasion Naidu said the decision to re-name the building as Pt. Deendayal ‘Antyodaya Bhawan’ has been taken to highlight the Antyodaya Philosophy of Pt. Deendayal  Upadhyaya who advocated the upliftment of the poorest and the most under-privileged strata of the Society. Deendayal Ji advocated the philosophy of ‘Integral Humanism’ which developed Body, Mind and Soul and reconciled Socialism and Capitalism said Naidu.

He further added that this being Pt. Deendayal ji’s birth centenary year it is only appropriate that an important building in the National capital is named after him. “Paryavaran Bhawan” is located in CGO Complex.
