The multi-storey building will have 105 Type 7 Quarters and 25 Type 6 Quarters. The project will be completed within two years. It will have Car Parking, Swimming Pool, Jogging Track, Tennis Court, Badminton Court, Community Hall, Meeting Rooms and Conferencing Hall and many other facilities.

Speaker Surjya Narayan Patro has urged 40 sitting and former MLAs to vacate their quarters as soon as possible so that construction for the new building can commence.

The project has been doing the round for the last 2 years, but due to non-cooperation of MLAs, it was delayed and could not materialise.
