India's ambitious plan to transform the iconic North and South Blocks of Delhi's Raisina Hill complex into the world's largest museum by 2025 has captured international attention. Union Minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat recently announced this monumental undertaking, which aims to create a museum nearly twice the size of France's renowned Louvre.

Speaking to the media, Shekhawat expressed his pride in India's role in this historic initiative. He highlighted that an agreement between India and France has been signed to facilitate the transformation of the Central Vista into a cultural hub. Once offices are relocated upon completion of the Central Vista redevelopment project in 2025, the North and South Blocks will undergo a remarkable metamorphosis into a sprawling museum.
