The proposed Naamghar and the cultural centre will provide a rendezvous point for the huge Assamese diaspora living in Delhi NCR and nearby areas to come together and celebrate festivals and hold events.
It will also act as an interface for other Delhites to experience and know more about Assamese culture and heritage.
