Restoration work at Chattar Manzil will be started soon for the beautification of the Nawabi era edifice. UP Rajkiya Nirman Nigam (UPRNN) has undertaken this construction work , which has restored Kothi Darshan Vilas, Gulistan-e-Eram and other structures.

Beside, Chattar Manzil is the Kothi Farhat Baksh, which is said to be the most unique structure, an exclusive blend of Oudh and French architecture. This structure is based on around 22 wooden beams, probably of Sal wood, including the three turrets on the mansion. Officials said, after restoring the parts of Kothi Farhat Baksh, the much awaited restoration of Chattar Manzil would start. To maintain the originality of the building, help from College and Uttar Pradesh State Archaeological Department (UPSAD) is also taken.
