For the management of the ‘Assam Bhawan’, 12 sanctioned posts have been created. The Chief Minister also said that the presence of Christian Medical College and Vellore Institute of Technology within 10 KM radius has increased the importance of the Bhawan.

The construction of Assam Bhawan is going on in full swing in Bengaluru which will be inaugurated in the current financial year.
