I had sent following mail to the WMIN members list about 10 days back.
As there was no reply for 5 days, I sent the same again adding
individual ids of EC members.
There is not a single line of reply to the mail. Not even any
acknowledgment of receiving the mail.

I am wondering if my email id is blacklisted by EC members or there is
no one in the current EC who is nominated/interested in responding OR
WMIN is completely shutdown.

If any list members have any idea about the current status of WMIN,
please let others know.

Thanks Sudhanwa for bringing up this topic on the list. As a co-founder  of the chapter, I  also share your concerns.

I had a brief phone conversation with Moksh Juneja, President, WMIN couple of days ago. I shared my concerns and requested him to take necessary steps to complete the regulatory requirements like audit, FCRA report submission, membership renewals, elections at the earliest. I also alerted him about the deadline for letter of intent for FDC participation for the next year (date revised to Jun 8, 2014), if the WMIN is to continue with FDC process. I offered my help to the extent  possible. Moksh responded positively.

As all the  Executive Committee members have signed the code of conduct of the chapter which specifically mandates them to  conduct the chapter affairs  consistent with its purpose and  to advance Chapter's interests and also makes them accountable to general body and community,  I hope that EC takes  prompt action in this regard.
