Calcutta now Kolkata was the capital of India during the British Raj until December 1911.
During the early 1900s, a proposal was made to the British administration to shift the capital of the British Indian Empire from Calcutta to Delhi. Unlike Calcutta, which was located on the eastern coast, Delhi was located in northern India and the Government of British India felt that it would be easier to administer the country from Delhi rather than from Calcutta.

Many elements of New Delhi architecture borrow from indigenous sources; however, they fit into a British Classical tradition.
