    The capital city of India is New Delhi. It was officially declared as the capital in 1911, replacing Calcutta (now Kolkata). The decision to move the capital was influenced by the need for a more centrally located city and to symbolize India’s political and administrative power. New Delhi was planned by British architect Edwin Lutyens and Herbert Baker. It officially became the capital on 12 December 1911, King George V inaugurated it during the Delhi Durbar.
