The Sangham has been existence for over a three decades and has been rendering useful services to this small community. Cultural Programmes,picnics,film shows organised by the Sangham from time to time give an opportunity to all the members to meet.  Over these years, the Andhra Community has increased in size and year by year new entrants are adding to the strength. A rapid turnover in the members is seen obviously because a majority belong to the services.This resulted in induction of fresh and enthusiastic blood every year whose contribution has been invaluable to the activities of Sangham.These activities have been instrumental in not only bringning frequently the Andhras of the city together but also projecting the cultural heritage of Andhra Pradesh to this region of India through its activities.
