Guys,

I understand this might be a serious issue, but I trust all India mailing list 
is definitely not the platform for discussion. Please continue this 
conversation privately, also - wanted to check on couple of points: 

(1) Do we have a policy of permitted issues to be discussed over the all India 
Mailing list - if not, there is a necessity to work on it.
(2) Disclosures and grievance handling procedures should be shared with each 
member upon joining and the mechanism should be followed. 

Again, pointing fingers or rephrasing the issue itself is not the solution - we 
will have to move beyond the question to get the answer.

- abhijith

Membership under processing is differnt from memvership alreadt processed. 
INDI-31 is non existant and will remain so.

As for CIS funding, you still havwn't said where you have got the "information" 
from.
The Chapter has alwaya made things public and will xontinue to do so. If the 
CIS funds us, it will be madw public.
