HI Anurag Dobhal,
If it is already split into two regions when you simulate without the protein, load the system in something like VMD, define a sphere between the two solvents that can hold your protein, record the residue ids for the water/chloroform in that sphere region, delete these from your .gro file, and place your protein in that position using a text editor. Then use editconf to make sure all of the atom numberings are resolved. Then run a short NPT simulation with the protein fixed in place to let the solvent molecules relax around it (since you may have created voids during the placement/removal of solvent molecules).
There may be more direct ways, but that's how others I've worked with have made void regions to place proteins in specific locations for initial simulation starting configurations.

Dear Gromacs users,
I am working on a biphasic system where I have taken chloroform and water
as two solvents. I want to locate my protien at the center of the box such
that half of the protien is solvated in water and other half in the
How can I acheive the desired placement of the protien.
