Dear Abhishek, I can take that query as one of the folks involved in preparing and debating the original MOA clauses of the chapter. The original intent was to keep membership criteria as open as possible - age, citizenship, etc. However the advise of the consultant who helped us with the society registration was to limit membership to adults and indian citizens based on their prior experience with getting these registrations through quickly. We were advised that we could later seek permissions for the above if the authorities so permitted. Not with standing these limitations it took the lot of meetings with authorities to get the formal registration through. I have attended many of these meetings to get due clearance. Hope that clarifies your query.
