7 Race Course Road: 7 things to know about Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s new residence


7 Race Course Road or 7 RCR is the residence of the Prime Minister of India, where the 15th Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, shifted in his new residence today. Just like his predecessor Dr Manmohan Singh, Narendra Modi also believes in simple living and has not asked for any dramatic changes at his new residence. But unlike the previous Prime Ministers who lived in bungalow number 7, Narendra Modi will be occupying the fifth bungalow or No. 5 RCR as his residence. And hence technically the address of the 15th Prime Minister of India is 5 RCR and not 7 RCR. We take a look at seven things to know about the Prime Minister’s residence.

1. The first Prime Minister to stay at 7 RCR was Rajiv Gandhi in 1984. He came along with his family to stay at the official residence. The official name of the Prime Minister’s complex is called Panchavati. It is situated on Race Course Road, New Delhi and was built in 1980s.

2. The bungalows of the Prime Minister’s residence at 7 Race Course Road were originally designed by Robert Tor Russell, who was part of British architect Edwin Lutyens’ team, when he was designing New Delhi in the 1920s and 1930s.

3. 7 RCR became the Prime Minister’s official residence during Prime Minister V P Singh’s tenure. He permanently converted the place as the PM’s residence. Before him, the Prime Ministers lived at the other bungalows allotted to them as the MPs.

4. 7 RCR consists of five bungalows 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9; including 5, Race Course Road, the Private Residential Zone for the Prime Minister. Bungalow 9 is occupied by Special Protection Group (SPG), while Bungalow 3 has been converted into a guesthouse for PM’s guests.

5. The Prime Ministerial residence is spread over 12 acres of land. Unlike 10 Downing Street, it does not have Prime Minister’s Office but has a conference room for informal meetings. Narendra Modi has chosen to use the seventh bungalow or bungalow No. 7 as his office. He will be residing in Bungalow No. 5.

6. Narendra Modi is the first Prime Minister to live at the 7 RCR without his family. But it is assumed that his cook for 12 years, Badri will accompany him in his stay at the Prime Minister’s residence. Badri has been staying with Modi at bungalow no. 26 in Gandhinagar, the official residence of the Gujarat’s chief minister for over a decade.

7. Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be using the interlinking tunnel from 7 RCR to Safardajung Airport to reduce the traffic congestion. The Race Course Metro Station is located on the Yellow Line of the Delhi Metro. It services the Race Course Road area in Central Delhi, and the Prime Minister’s official residence, 7, Race Course Road is located nearby.

With Narendra Modi coming in, 7 RCR ke bhi ache din aane wale hain!

    May 30, 2014: On November 17, 2011 I wrote (IndianAirForcePilotsMurderDOTblogspotDOTcom): “There are two hundred thousand Indian engineers and scientists working in Research & Development for foreign companies in India but instead of putting its money in Research & Development ( in my letter dated January 5, 2004 to the press — included in my blog NuclearSupremacyForIndiaOverUSDOTblogspotDOTcom — I had suggested one million Research & Development workers in India in government-sponsored projects), India’s CIA-RAW government buys foreign equipment in all fields to keep India poor, weak and enslaved. India’s government lends hundreds of billions of dollars to the U. S. government in exchange for worthless U. S. paper but seeks foreign investment and World Bank loans for projects in India, giving ownership and control of India to India’s enemies, despite the unlimited capital available to India by simply printing the money; see ‘How India’s Economy Can Grow 30% Per Year Or More’ in my blog which can be found by a Google search with the title; as is described there, the United States has been applying my proposal about money by stealth and now also openly but Manmohan Singh refuses to do so because this bugger — a CIA appointee — does what serves the United States’, not India’s, interests.”

    With his plan for 100% FDI in defence, CIA-appointee Modi is outdoing Manmohan Singh in giving ownership and control of India to India’s enemies. As I have said, CIA picks India’s Prime Ministers, Cabinets and a lot more (IndiasLegitimateRulerSatishChandraDOTblogspotDOTcom).

    The Intelligence Bureau was the principal instrument of British rule over India and remained loyal to the British and then Americans after India’s fake ‘Independence’ (see WhatYouShouldKnowAboutRAWDOTblogspotDOTcom ). By making an Intelligence Bureau man National Security Adviser, Goonda Modi is trying to ensure never-ending slavery to the Anglo-Americans.

    May 28, 2014: I have said that the American invasion of Afghanistan — a part of traditional India — means the coast-to-coast destruction of the United States by India. When V. K. Singh was army chief, during a visit to the U.K. he visited a brigade that was due to be deployed to Afghanistan. I said he should be bayoneted to death as punishment for this crime.

    Omar Abdullah should be arrested for high treason for talking of secession from India and India’s CIA-appointed weakling government (Prime Minister and Cabinet) dismissed and arrested for countenancing treason.

    May 27, 2014: I have said that India’s conventional forces are liabilities, not assets. Conventional forces are worthless for destroying the United States. Taking care of the enemy United States will take care of all other enemies. In the past few years I have had India’s nuclear forces emplace India’s nuclear warheads in Washington, New York and other U.S. cities, ready to be exploded. Destroying Washington and New York, with a warning that additional U.S. cities will be similarly destroyed, with nuclear warheads already emplaced in them, if there is any retaliation or sign of retaliation, will immediately make India the supreme military and economic power in the world.

    (May 23 ‘14) On May 23 ‘14, starting at 1:42 am Toronto time, I found 7 new messages, via DISQUS, that Michael Hayden of the CIA had posted on my comments on RenewEconomyDOTcomDOTau, stanforddailyDOTcom and IndiaDOTcom within about half hour offering to make me Finance Minister in the Cabinet of Narendra Modi and saying “Of course, we would much prefer you over Mr. Narendra Modi. Had you accepted our original offer in 2008, by now we certainly would have picked you as the Prime Minister of India.” :-

    Dear Mr. Satish Chandra,

    This is Michael Hayden yet again. In spite of retiring from the Central Intelligence Agency, I do remain active in covert operations.

    My offer to you is valid. Do note that it is very rarely, if ever, that the CIA actively tries to recruit a civilian. Moreover as far as my memory goes, I have yet to see a package as attractive as yours being offered to a civilian.

    I sincerely wish that you would accept our offer.

    Of course, we would much prefer you over Mr. Narendra Modi. Had you accepted our original offer in 2008, by now we certainly would have picked you as the Prime Minister of India.

    If you respond in time, we can still make you Finance Minister in Mr. Modi’s cabinet.

    The following is the link to the web page containing the above offer to make me Finance Minister : http://reneweconomy.com.au/2014/oz-coal-prospects-dim-new-india-pm-shines-light-solar-83706#comment-1400500008

    This is a wide perspective view
    of an Indian citizen with regards to Indian agriculture. In this letter I would like to draw many
    concerned factors affecting agriculture
    outflow. For this from my view where together the newly elected Indian govt,
    lead by BJP ( Bharatiya Janata Party) can plan out some strategies which can help
    out the modern society from rising food
    cost in agriculture..

    We are making a win-win model in
    linking 1400 cities with a joint venture
    account model to overcome a decisive outcome, atmosphere where price stability
    and factors such as rising prices and poor production remains as a main
    concerns over all India. Primarily the
    deficit in terms of fund, technological and lack of decisions has lead to faulter in
    the Exports zone as well as depleting income of the Indian farmers who work
    hard all the day.

    In India over a period of 67
    years after independence inspite of monsoon there are certain things to make

    Quick recap of not getting agriculture upto mark in all 29 states.

    1) Good
    soil but no production or manpower

    2) Right
    Climatic atmosphere but no critical
    study of price rise or guidance.

    3) Price
    fall in terms of poor marketing or a lack of critical study of price fall or

    Study of fund
    disbursed in all states for agriculture.

    1) Fund
    disbursed but not rightly handled in agriculture for promotion or high yield.
    No proper check up of fund utilized.

    2) Agriculture
    where crop pattern study and investment
    are mainly required so that irrigation
    of fix pattern of land can yield produce output ratio pattern.

    Study of hoarding harvest and marketing which gives you nominal

    getting money try to make an investment like a land to pull up the price and fetch heavy profit
    margin in return to his investment. We are well convinced that black
    marketing are bound to merge at village
    panchayat level. A systematic
    pattern has not evolved . License issued
    to hoarders who had tarnished prices every often and keep prices not under
    control. They had made huge profit by raising price levels, where there is no
    accountability of the stock purchased.

    Stop funding to fund fraud people who gets loan amount money at a
    mere 7% interest rate.

    1) Jewellers
    and financers make use of agricultural loan which are easily available by
    supplying documents and mostly falsely documented. Several
    bank managers in the name of agricultural loan facilitate the fraud
    people who use this fund for purchasing or investing in land or giving a token amount. Funds are hereby
    entirely gone into the hands of swindlers. Thusthe funds are getting
    underutilized which govt. give to the state.

    Now to give a faster output and
    link network for faster agriculture produce. To Link fruits, agriculture and farm produce like poultry farm /
    rabbit farm / meat farm. To maintain the produce sufficient to all
    cities which require the immediate usage
    by applying modern technique.

    What is this modern technique ?

    Requirement for Krishi Vikas
    Kendra – Satellite centre. I prefer to
    use figure eg. 1400 cities/villages/town
    all over India with a capital of Rs. 5,000 crores. This 1400 centres can work round the clock to
    remove agricultural bottlenecks all over India.

    1) Godown/Depot for storing produce and making all
    produce movement of respective towns.

    2) Billing
    and Godwon incharge, Well computerized transaction billing online.

    3) Studio
    Room for live coverage and keeping aninteractive session with LED screen with
    all 1400 centre or headquarters.

    4) Urea
    and ancillary units cold storage to specified head quarters

    5) Marketing
    room with 5 computers

    6) To
    deploy advertisement campaign with banner promotion, booklets and leaflets.

    7) To
    connect agriculture produce to reach out to all local agents of nearby towns of
    nearby cities through marketing marketing rooms. To connect international agents by
    introducing a deposit amount.

    Each “ Krishi Vikas Kendra “ should act as a mediator between farmers and
    agents. To renew weekly, monthly reports of
    states to central zone. Linkage of all the 1400 centres.

    To circulate with booklet in
    regional language and a kiosk machine for pricing of produce. These kendras
    should stock sufficient stock and help farmers to sell in the secondary market
    ( Online).

    Land slides,hill slides and river bank erosion, bad roads and accidents are regular phenomena in Bharat’s day to day life.. These can be avoided if Jute Geo textile materials and hessian Jute cloths could be utilized in Ganga-Jamuna rejuvenation projects and National and State highways for protections. This will also help jute producing states namely, West Bengal, Bihar, Assam, Seemandhra and their industries.
    I request our respected Prime minister to think over this.
