I think central India is ideal for being the capital. Delhi currently looks like hell with all the pollution and muzzie lynch mobs!
Then again how much it will cost with infra and the shifting and all?

Delhi have been capital of India for long

Prithviraj ruled through twin capital Delhi and Ajmer.

Indraprastha itself is part of Delhi so there isn't much more to say about historical importance.
True Delhi was a capital but of what? We are talking India as a whole and Delhi was never a capital except for small dynasties throughout history, only reaching some importance in the last few centuries.

Move the capital back to its OG location where India was united first and which produced two of the most glorious Indian empires, Patliputra.

I think a comment of mine sparked this thread so might as well give my reason.

I feel like delhi is a cursed place, we should consider moving our capital out of their.
I have this place in Mind (black circle)

Basically I have many reasons to do so.
MP is centrally placed in a sense it will be located at the center of India and will be far away from any immediate threats from Paki missile and better connected to the rest of states.
Other than that the Crosswinds of India makes Delhi's climate tougher than other places i.e., pollution in winters and extreme loo in Summer.

Besides what is the significant money factor We just have to move the Government offices it does not have to happen at once but overtime, more like ten years.

A city with no more than 1 million population and well designed infra should do the deal.

Besides Delhi is a bastation of libergands, all kind of Chutzap takes place there.

And yes I have this hunch that changing capital will change India's fate, just a hunch nothing serious.

Nibbas something ought to be done about the overpopulation of Cities like Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore.


Do u guys really want to pay 15,000 every month from your salary for 20 years and live in places like these.




Delhi is heading the same route there are too many damn people, pollution is big because lots of people are living there.

just having 10 to 20 smart cities won't cut it, we need a smart city in each and every Lok sabha Constituency.

Would it make sense to assign the wealthiest city or the city with the most international relations to be the capital? If so then I'm voting for Mumbai.

No, capital is better a small, rich and efficient city with low population and not an economic backbone. Why? See protests.
also geographically well protected,
Ataturk's Turkish Republic's capital was shifted from the Ottoman Capital of Istanbul/Constantinople to Ankara, which is much further inland and surrounded by mountains, and has no big economic utility at the time.

With new parliament building and other stuff, shifting is definitely not gonna happen ever.
Know that, without an emergency like a WW3 where India's capital gets gets destroyed, capital won't move in this century or even in next century. Buildings are being designed for requirements of 150 years and will even survive longer in architectural terms.

True, considering how things may unfold and pan-out in the future. Hopefully such dire needs don't arise.
