The departments at the National Office assist the National Spiritual Assembly of the Bahá'ís of India to fulfill its role and functions, particularly in the context of the current global Plan. The National Spiritual Assembly needs effective channels for the flow of guidance, decisions, encouragement, human resources, literature, information, etc to the Institutions, believers and the community. To this end, the National Assembly has in place an appropriate structure of departments. We share with you in brief about the various departments operating from the National Office. Although each department serves a particular function or responsibility on behalf of the National Spiritual Assembly, they all serve the needs of that same single Institution.

It follows that all staff operate as a team, each within their own distinct spheres but conscious of their overall interconnectedness and their single objective of serving the National Spiritual Assembly of the Bahá'ís of India.
