Abhishek,

I'm not sure where you are getting this information from. Please get your
facts straight and stop speaking for the chapter.  If you have a question,
you can ask it in the form of a question instead of making unsubstantiated
claims on a public mailing list, which is frankly unproductive since it
requires us to spend time to send out clarifications.

In case you are curious about the state of our finances, please refer to
our annual report which is linked from the main page of our website (
wiki.wikimedia.in) in compliance with the requirements of the Wikimedia
Foundation and Karnataka law.




Regards,
Karthik Nadar,
Secretary, Wikimedia India Chapter.
