Dear Sudhanwaji

For the convenience of the other subscribers of the mailing list, I will reply on your membership question in this email & your other list of questions in the next email.

As part of regular reminder emails for renewal, we had sent an email in June 2016 for renewing your membership.

So, till date we have not received your membership form via email, hence your membership was not renewed.

Regarding the membership fees which you gave, since you did not send me your membership form & your membership was not renewed, we have considered it as a donation. If you want we can send a donation receipt in your name.

In case you want to become member of WMIN for 2017-18, request you to please send me your membership form again with your bank transaction

Dear Vishwa,

From whatever you have mentioned, my name should also be there. (Especially considering that shantanu Mahajan's name is included . We send our money, docs together).

Many more questions arise further.
How elections can happen for previous year with this year's voters? At least the voters should be for the same year of voting.
If the current EC members tenure is over, who and how elections are being held by them? That too for previous year.  What will be the tenure of elected people of this 2016 elections? Till 2018 or till 2019?

I don't know if current EC has taken any advice on these matters. 
They have not updated members about any regularity matters or financial matters during there tenure. Whatever little bit  people know is from the IRC logs and that is not a good picture.

Hope the current EC replies to these queries.
