PM Modi Unveils YashoBhoomi Convention Centre on His Birthday: A Milestone Celebration


On September 17 at 11 a.m., Prime Minister Narendra Modi celebrated his birthday by opening the first phase of the India International Convention and Expo Center, better known as "Yashobhoomi," in Dwarka, New Delhi. The Yashobhoomi convention center, which was built for about Rs 5,400 crore and covers a project area of more than 8.9 lakh square meters, has a total seating capacity of more than 11,000 delegates and includes 15 convention rooms, a grand ballroom, and 13 meeting rooms.

One of the largest exhibition halls in the world will be available at Yashobhoomi. These exhibit halls cover a total area of 1.07 million square meters. These spaces will be used to hold trade shows, exhibits, and corporate gatherings.

There are seating arrangements inside the main auditorium for 6,000 people. The motorized seating system enables the floor to be either flat or tiered in the manner of an auditorium. Wooden floors and acoustic wall panels give the space a quality finish.

A little over 2,500 people can be accommodated in the Grand Ballroom, which has a petal ceiling. For about 500 visitors, there is extra space in the expanded open area. The 13 conference rooms, which are dispersed across eight floors, will be used for various meetings.

The Delhi Airport Metro Express line of the Delhi Metro will be connected to the massive convention center by the government.

In a statement released on Saturday, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) said that starting on Sunday, the Airport Express Line would run at a whopping 120 kilometers per hour (KMPH).

"This historic increase in speed of India's fastest Metro corridor gradually from 90 KMPH to 120 KMPH has been made possible by meticulous planning and time-bound implementation by DMRC's engineers in consultation with a number of other government agencies and domain experts," said the DMRC in a statement.

All Delhi Metro lines are soon to be expected to operate at these speeds, making Delhi's Metro the quickest in the nationPrime Minister Modi revealed his administration's ambitious "PM Vishwakarma" program, which is intended to promote traditional craftspeople and other artisans, after breaking the ribbon on YashoBhoomi and the extension of the Delhi metro airport line.

The majority of those employed in these traditional occupations are from Other Backward Classes, hence the BJP's outreach to this politically significant group is also shown in the Rs 13,000 crore scheme.

The PM Vishwakarma scheme will enable the government to grant loans up to Rs 3 lakh without any (bank) guarantees, according to PM Modi, who spoke at the occasion. Prime Minister Narendra Modi said, "Under the PM Vishwakarma scheme, the government will provide up to Rs 3 lakh in loan without any (bank) guarantee." Additionally, it has been made sure that the interest rate is relatively low. The government has decided to offer the Vishwakarma partners a Rs. 1 lakh loan at first, and once it is repaid, another Rs. 2 lakh loan.

"Today the nation has got the International Exhibition Center YashoBhoomi," Prime Minister Modi stated at the introduction of the PM Vishwakarma Scheme. The labor that has been done here shows the penances of my Vishwakarma brothers. I proclaim this center to all Vishwakarmas in the country.

"The Vishwakarmas will benefit from this. This will serve as a bustling hub for promoting Indian handicrafts and art internationally. This will significantly contribute to the globalization of local goods. Our Vishwakarma are crucial to society, much as the spine is to our bodies. Without them, daily existence is inconceivable, he continued.

With a project area of more than 8.9 lakh square meters and a total built-up area of more than 1.8 lakh square meters, YashoBhoomi would be one of the greatest MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conferences, and Exhibitions) facilities in the world.

The main auditorium, a ballroom, and 13 meeting rooms are among the 15 convention rooms in the more than 73,000 square meter convention center, which can accommodate 11,000 attendees in all.


There are approximately 6,000 seats in the main auditorium of the conference facility, which also serves as the plenary hall. It boasts advanced automatic seating technology that allows for various seating configurations.


The ballroom can accommodate up to 2,500 guests inside and 500 more outside. It is distinguished by its unusual petal canopy. There are 13 conference rooms spread across eight floors that can accommodate a range of meetings of different sizes.

In addition to these features, YashoBhoomi has one of the biggest exhibition halls in the world, measuring more than 1.07 lakh square meters. These rooms, which are connected to a stunning lobby area, will be used for exhibits, trade displays, and business functions. Numerous support spaces, including media rooms, VVIP lounges, cloakrooms, a visitor information center, and ticketing desks, are located in the foyer.
