 09-05-2021: Respected Members, Namaskar! We are all going through a difficult phase and losing our near and dear ones every day. The BMM prays for the peace of all departed noble souls, who have lost their lives during this pandemic. In the present situation, it is duty of all of us to serve the humanity in whatever way possible. This can be done even sitting at home by making phone calls or using social media platforms to reach out the people in distress. Recently, our Executive Members decided to distribute masks and for that purpose volunteered themselves for purchase and distribution under the banner of BMM. I compliment my team who came out and distributed these to various people and organisations inspite of all odds. Not a single penny was spent out of BMM funds but contributed by the EC Members. The next step was to distribute oxymeter, thermometers and oxygen cylinders/concentrate to people affected by Covid-19 infection. The proposal was moved for the said purpose and approved by the EC. In this regard let me clarify that all such things were managed at individual levels and no amount was spent out of BMM Funds. Even arrangement for supply of free food packets was done at individual levels. The members expressed their desire that BMM is more important that an individual. These social works at the credit of an organisation helps in may spheres/projects. Any member of our community located anywhere can serve the humanity and their efforts would be lauded/appreciated by the Samaj. On account of change of status of J&K every NGO is now required to renew the registration under the Societies Registration Act, 1860, which will be valid for five years. Our organisation is registered with the Registrar of Societies, Kashmir and we authorised our Gen.Secretary to comply with the formalities and forward the papers to the Office of Registrar of Societies as decided in the meeting. Our organisation was not earlier registered with the Income Tax Department. The Income Tax Department has recently opened the window for seeking of fresh registration by the NGO’s.(not registered earlier). This would be a provisional registration valid for three years and thereafter it has to be renewed after every five years.The EC has completed the paper work and is shortly going to make formal application for registration. Not only that, the paper work for seeking registration u/s 80G of the Income Tax Act, 1961 is also complete and application will be uploaded for the said purpose in a couple of days. The Head Office building at Ganpatyar is under illegal occupation of Sh. B.L Shah and he was asked to vacate several times in the past. Infact he had given the deadline of 1st May, 2021 but due to prevailing situation, he has not been able to vacate the building. Sh. Ravi Ji Raina, Vice-President, Kashmir had approached him on 30th April, 2021 for handing over the possession but was told to wait for sometime in view of Pandemic. The matter is of great priority and all efforts would be put together to free the building from illegal occupant. The building requires complete renovation and infact building on the back side has completely collapsed and needs to be rebuilt. I make an earnest appeal to the respective members to contribute for the said cause so that the glory of BMM HQ is restored. The financial statements for 2018-19 and 2019-20 are available on our website i.e. www.brahmanmmkashir.org. Also, constitution as amended upto date is also available on the website. However, in case any member desires to have a copy, he may please contact the General Secretary or the Treasurer and they shall be glad to forward the same to him on his email address. The EC has formulated certain committees and these will be filled after seeking valuable suggestions from the worthy life members. In case any member desire not to be part of the committee, the same will also be filled from the names proposed by the worthy life members. Our organisation is great and prestigious and founded in the year 1915.Lot of hard work has been put in by our elders and it is our duty to make it more vibrant in the interest of all. Let us contribute in whatever way to maintain the glory of BMM. At the end, it is my humble request to all worthy members not to use the social platforms to malign or degrade any person. It is not advisable to make unfounded, malicious and unverified allegations. We are a small community and related to each other one way or the other. It creates ill will and hatred and same is unacceptable. We have to use the social platform for healthy discussions, providing of informative material particularly in present scenario, when we all are under stress.We are open to healthy criticism.We are just a phone call away to all for seeking clarification/information from us. Kindly maintain decorum & discipline in the whatsapp group and follow group rules & regulations. I also draw attention to the provisions as laid down under” Information Technology Act 2000” & invoking of such provisions against defaulters will not be in good taste. At the end I again request all the worthy members to take care of themselves under the present scenario as their lives are precious not only for their families but for entire community. Be always blessed and stay safe. (CA. U.K Handoo) President, BMM
