President of India inaugurates ‘Ashiana Annexe’ in Dehradun Updated on : 11-07-2017 07:47 AM
President Pranab Mukherjee on Monday inaugurated the annexe of the presidential retreat Ashiana in Dehradun, which has accommodation facilities for accompanying officers and staff of the Rashtrapati Bhavan.

Mukherjee, who was on a day-long visit, was received by Uttarakhand Governor K K Paul and Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat at the airport.

After inaugurating the annexe, Mukherjee took a tour of the premises and was given an overview of the projects undertaken in the president's estate.

The Ashiana retreat was built originally as a bungalow of the commandant of the Presidents Bodyguard and was revived by Mukherjee after long years of disuse.

K R Narayanan, in March 1998, was the last president to stay here. The restored and renovated main Ashiana building was inaugurated by the President on September 27 last year.

The Ashiana annexe has 12 low-cost dwelling units for officers and staff of the Rashtrapati Bhavan during presidential visits.
