    The tajmahal has

    The Tajmahal has been renovated currently. It will reopen in 2016.

    I understand "has been" is not correct and " is being" is correct. Is so, why?

    Re: The tajmahal has

    Where did you find this? 'Taj Mahal' is normally two words.

    The present perfect tense ('has been') tells us that the renovation is complete. The present continuous tense ('is being') tells us that the renovation is in progress.

    "Has been" does not fit with "currently".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
