Imperial Delhi Committee

It was announced at the 1911 Delhi Durbar that the capital city of India was to be transferred from Calcutta to a purpose built city, initially known as Imperial Delhi but eventually called New Delhi. The Imperial Delhi Committee, formed by the Viceroy of the time Lord Hardinge, was constituted on 25 March 1913 to overlook the construction of the new capital [1].
