And what do you think could be done by that HUGE AMOUNT of 1.5+ Indian
Rupees?

I think chapter has its office in Bangalore and based on my experience, I
know that any property requires paying off few bills, e.g. electricity,
water, property tax, tel/internet (if it has got) and these things are not
so cheap in Today's India as they were in my days of teen (20 years ago).

I qlways thought WMIN and CIS were two seperate entities and their finances
are dealt seperately. Will love you elaborating more on this.

required for next year activities? and Which activities are planned?

I don't think this is a simple query Abhishek. Have you seen chapter
website? I'll strongly recomend you visit it. There is a link to Grants
page in navigation menu. If you visit that page, you'll realise that
chapter has funded several activities carried out by communities. Do you
think will it be possible for chapter to tell you today that how many grant
requests it is going to get this year? How much ammount will it be
requested from various communities? Or do you suggest chapter decide a
figure today and put a cap on grants and other expenses once that amount is
used?

This is just one example, don't take it as "the only expense" of chapter.

Disclaimer: I have no formal tie with the chapter nor with CIS. I have no
financial inrerest with either of them personally.
