Dear OC’s ,
OCA (India) had finalized the participation fee to attend the sesquicentennial celebrations at Shimla from 2nd October to 6th October 2009 at Rs. 10,000/-per OC ( per couple) . This amount would be used to provide for 3 dinners and 2 lunches during the celebrations and the entertainment programmes in relation to the same.
Recently, at a meeting held in Shimla, members of the committee put forward that this method of collection of funds needs to be flexible so as to ensure greater participation. Further, they put forward that some of the members, resident in Shimla may not find it convenient to attend 5 meals during the celebrations, and the amount of Rs. 10,000/- would be a limiting factor if the OC wished to attend just one meal. In deference to the wishes of the members, it was decided that an amount of Rs. 2000/- should be kept as registration fee and this shall be used towards funding the entertainment programme / s. In addition, OC’s should be requested to contribute funds as per their desire to meet the meal expenses.
Further, the registration amounts / contributions for meals will be routed through either Himachal chapter ( Mr. Pritinder Singh email email@example.com, phono no. 9816013000), Chandigarh Chapter (Mr.Ajay Thiara- Email firstname.lastname@example.org, phone no. 9316131741)or Delhi chapter (Mr. Jaspal Sawhney email email@example.com, phone No. 98110-40347).
Last date for receipt of applications to the various chapters is set as 27th August 2009 so that arrangements for the meals can be finalised. All OC’s desiring to participate are required to contact their various chapter at the earliest and oblige.
