It will also be beneficial for the students from Assam who come to Vellore for higher studies.

The Assam Bhawan will address the accommodation issue of the patients and students, Sarma added.

The CM said the Bhawan has been built in four phases as this six-storied building has suites, double-bedded accommodation, one 2BHK unit, 40 double-bedded guest rooms, three five-sitter male dormitories, one seven-sitter female dormitory, one reception and lunge, one dining hall, one kitchen, one store, one office, one Assam Emporium and office and one staff dormitory. For the management of the bhawan, 12 numbers of sanctioned posts have been created.

Himanta Biswa Sarma said the presence of Christian Medical College and Vellore Institute of Technology within a 10 km radius has increased the importance of the Bhawan.

Sarma also said for the convenience of the people of Assam, the state government has already set up Assam Bhawans in Kolkata, Mumbai, Chennai, New Delhi and Shillong.

However, his government has also taken steps for the reconstruction of Assam Bhawan situated at SP Marg in New Delhi and Russel Street in Kolkata. The construction of Assam Bhawan is going on in full swing in Bengaluru which will be inaugurated in the current financial year.

Sarma said steps have also been taken to build Assam Bhawan at Ahmedabad in Gujarat and Pune in Maharashtra. He said one more Assam Bhawan is being built in New Delhi which will have a convention centre as well as Namghar to reflect Assam’s cultural heritage at the national level.

The chief minister also thanked the Tamil Nadu government and the people of Vellore for extending all help in the construction of Assam Bhawan.
