Just to  inform you that Abhishek Suryawanshi, who claims to be a
Chapter Member with membership number INDI-31 is NOT a member. The
entry currently doesn't exist in our membership list. Mr. Suryawanshi
was a member of the Chapter during the earlier Financial Year and did
NOT renew his membership. I hope the community is now aware of what
kind of people it is dealing with.
