This was owing to the dedication of NBCC team engaged in the work and its supportive and inspiring leadership. The history of Rashtrapati Nilayam, Hyderabad over the years has witnessed the ebb and flow of time, bearing witness to India’s journey towards independence and its subsequent emergence as a sovereign republic. The historic flag post also stood witness to the integration of Hyderabad state into the Indian Union in 1948. However, the passage of time had taken its toll on this iconic structure, leaving it weather-beaten and worn. Recognizing the significance of preserving this tangible link to the past and a poignant tribute to the nation’s rich history and unwavering spirit, NBCC (India) Limited undertook this monumental endeavor. This symbolic structure, steeped in heritage and patriotism, stands as a testament to India’s enduring legacy and the spirit of unity that binds its people together. In a world where time is often measured in seconds and minutes, NBCC’s feat serves as a powerful reminder of the enduring value of our cultural heritage. As the flag waves proudly atop the newly restored flag post, it stands as a beacon of hope and inspiration, reminding us of the sacrifices made by those who came before us and the ideals for which they stood.
