Conservation works were preceded by an exhaustive documentation and archival research on the structure. This allowed the team to determine all original elements. The plinth of the tomb had multiple layers of cement concrete as well as filled with construction waste during a repair in 2002-4, which was adding a lot of weight on the foundations of the tomb structure. This existing cement concrete was systematically dismantled which has also helped in revealing the original floor levels.
After dismantling existing concrete, the base of lime concrete was applied which this helped in revealing the original floor levels. The red sandstone of required quantities for the platform was procured and the red sandstone flooring was provided along the length of the platform and in the internal chambers. The Delhi Quartzite stone has been provided as the plinth protection along the length of the raised platform of the monument to stop the water rise.
A number of structural cracks were present on the tomb walls, arches and domes. The task included removing all the cement concrete from the structure; the cracks were treated with the lime water techniques. After this lime concrete was grouted in to repair the cracks. Following the repair of the cracks, surfaces were plastered using coarse and fine layer of lime plaster.
The Mughal tomb had an ornamented interior though much of the interior ornamentation had been lost due to neglect, water seepage and inappropriate past repairs wherein plain cement plaster was used on wall and ceiling surfaces that were originally decorated. After the careful documentation of the existing remains of the original incised plaster and paintwork, restoration of the decayed decorative patterns were undertaken on the internal ceiling and the works. The wall surfaces were found to be covered with soot, algae, and lime wash thereby disfiguring the historic appearance and accelerating the decay process. Portions of the wall surfaces had also been re-plastered in cement mortar.
Trained art conservators carefully removed the cement patches from the external walls. Water and soft brushes are used on the wall surfaces to clean off all soot. The plastering layers included coarse lime mortar for the base layer and fine lime mortar for the top layer.
All original lime plaster found on the structure was carefully consolidated and retained on the structure. Ornamental patters such as found on the neck of the dome, the parapet were carefully restored. A final coat of 1 mm lime: Marble dust plaster used by the Mughals to mimic marble was restored to the entire facade. Since the penultimate layers of lime plaster include organic additives such as jaggery, fruit pulp, egg white and lentil, the patina of organic growth is expected to return within a few years.

It was found that all the four lattice screens originally placed over the door were removed from here in the 20th century. Moreover, the doors were also found to be missing from the openings. As part of the conservation efforts, all the rectangular openings but one was sealed by sandstone lattice screens, which allows proper light and ventilation in the internal chamber. All the 7 lattice screens (4 small, 3 rectangular) were prepared by the master craftsmen and are restored on the tomb after removing the cement plaster from the surface of the walls.

During the on-going conservation works the inappropriate past repairs carried out on the terrace like undulating multiple layers of cement concrete were manually removed and surface prepared for providing traditional lime based terrace. After completely removing the added cement layers from the terrace, the terracing work was carried out using lime concrete comprising lime mortar and brick aggregate. Traditional organic additives such as Bael fruit pulp, jaggery are added to make the surface water tight and as per original slopes and details.
In the absence of water spouts, rainwater was percolating into the masonry as well as causing deterioration of the wall plaster. Hand-chiseled red sandstone water spouts were provided on each of the four fa├žade and plinth to ensure proper disposal of rain water. The finial was found collapsed on the roof and in broken fragments and has since been restored to the dome.
