He is survived by his wife, son and two daughters. His son K N Krishna Bhat is the former president of Badiadka Gram Panchayat.

He started to sponsor houses for the homeless at the age of 50. Abbas who lost his house in the heavy rains during the monsoon, was the first one to receive a house from Sairam. Interestingly, the great humanitarian utilized the money he saved for a pilgrimage to build a house for Abbas.

Sairam was adamant to build all the houses with the same devotion of constructing his own house. He also worked along with the labourers and ensured the quality of the construction. He was also keen on selecting deserving people for donating the houses.

He also took leadership for several drinking water projects, electrification of more than a hundred houses, mass weddings, mega medical camps, distribution of uniforms and books for students and land to build houses for the poor.
