Every diocese of the Malankara Church has a Diocesan Assembly. The Diocesan Metropolitan presides over the
assembly meeting. All matters related to the spiritual growth of the Diocese are discussed and decided in
this administrative body, including the budget and accounts. Each parish of the Diocese is represented at the Assembly
by their Vicar and a certain number of elected laity, based on the number of parishioners. The term of
all Diocesan Assembly delegates are five years. The Diocesan Assembly meets once a year or otherwise deemed
appropriate by the Metropolitan.
