August 3, 2015 1:40 am
The Indian government has offered Fiji some property in New Delhi’s diplomatic quarter.
The property has been given to build our new High Commission.
Fiji’s High Commissioner to India, Yogesh Karan revealed on FBC TV’s 4 The Record last night that the property is worth $120 million.
“It’s a very prime area close to Rashtrapati Bhawan and India Gate. The price of real estate in India is perhaps one of the most expensive in the world now. We’re very privileged because there’s hardly any land available in that area. We’re very fortunate to be very close to the bigger countries, the superpowers.”
The property is in Chanakyapuri, an affluent neighborhood and diplomatic enclave established in the 1950s.
It plays host to the majority of foreign embassies in India and is home to many staff members of the consulates.
