MEMBERS ARE REQUESTED TO ATTEND THE MEETING

By order of the Executive Committee.

(Dibyalok Patnaik)
Honorary Secretary
28th January 2014


Note:  Copy of the agenda note prepared by the President is enclosed.

 Agenda   note  on Minimum Usage  Charges
The background of levying minimum usage charges is as follows:- 
Apart  from  the  services of  the  club   which  are  paid for  depending  on  actual  consumption  by  the  individual  member like  the  Kitchen  , rooms, bar, tennis, gymnasium ,card room , communication centre etc., certain   areas still exist which  directly does not result  in  earnings for  the club whereas sizeable amounts have to be spent in such areas. They are   expenses on salaries of  office  staff,  security ,reception staff, gardeners , carpenters, sweepers, electricians ,plumbers, expenses on annual  maintenance  and  repairs , expenses on  a   portion  of  the   electricity consumed as well as expenses on  the  magazine  room.  These are  expenses which  have  not  been  taken  into  account  in the individual  costing  of saleable  items  in  the  dining hall or the  bar or  any other place in the  club  . These expenses are escalating every year by ten to fifteen percent.

From the  financial  point  of view  ideally  this  should be  met  from   the  monthly subscription  of  the  club  members which  every member pays . However the prevailing situation is  that  during 2012-13 the  above  mentioned expenses stood at  Rs 62,15,808 and  the  collection from subscriptions during  the  year  was Rs 22,40,942. Figures of year wise expenditure  on non  remunerative activities /areas of  the   club  as  compared  to  income  from subscription of  club  members from 2001-2002 is enclosed  as an annexure. The monthly subscription rates have not been revised since 2001-2002.

Since  the  surpluses  from  the  revenue  account  as well as the capital  gains from  entrance fee are  to  be utilized  for  the  development of  the  existing club as  well as the  development  of  the  new  club campus  the decision   before  the Executive  Committee  was either to  the raise the monthly  subscription of all the  club  members to  bridge  the  gap  or  to charge  a  minimum user fee like several  other clubs. After  due  deliberations  the  committee  resolved  to  levy  a  minimum  usage  charges  of  Rs 500  per  month  on  every  member  apart  from    payment  of monthly   subscription  and  development  fee. The  monthly  usage  of  club  members   in terms  of  consumption  of  food  and  beverages  as  well as   use  of  other  chargeable  facilities  and  services   of the  club  was  to  be  computed   at  the   end  of  every  quarter  and  in case  such  usage  fell  short  of  Rs 1500 for  the   quarter  the  balance  amount  would  in  any  case  the charged  to  the  concerned  member  apart  from  the  amount  due  from  him  /her  on  account  of  actual  consumption .This  minimum user fee was not only meant for consumption of food  and beverages but also for use of other facilities like the card room, gymnasium, swimming pool, billiards, snooker, pool, tennis and room tariff . 

However this move of the executive committee has adversely affected members who are rare users of the club particularly several Govt. officers who hardly avail of the facilities of the club.

 Nevertheless you will kindly appreciate that the gap between the expenditure incurred on the non remunerative activities of the club and the income from monthly subscriptions should be narrowed if not completely bridged. 
This matter was discussed in the last two annual general body meetings. In the last annual general body meeting it was mentioned by me that if necessary an extra ordinary general body meeting will be convened to discuss the issue of imposing minimum user charges.
This was followed up by a discussion in the meeting of the executive committee held during November 2013 where in it was decided that an extra ordinary general body meeting will convened to discuss and decide on the question of continuing with the imposition of minimum user fee and also to discuss various alternative options.
Accordingly this special general body meeting has been convened and the following options are placed before the members for arriving at a consensus:

1. Continue with the present minimum user charges. 
2. To meet the deficit by periodic and reasonable increase in monthly subscription only and do away with mininmum usage charges.
3. Reduction in the minimum user charges and a marginal hike in the monthly subscription.
In case no consensus is arrived at, the matter would be subjected to a voting process to day.  
In the past certain members have loosely talked about the rates and tariffs of India International Centre (IIC) and Central Services Officers Institute (CSOI), New Delhi as compared to Bhubaneswar club. These officers over look the fact that the two organizations IIC and CSOI get a lot of Govt. patronage in terms of training programs, workshops, seminars and conferences apart from getting grants from Govt.  of India whereas Bhubaneswar club has to fend for itself.

However  as  mentioned  earlier  the  minimum  user  charges  have  adversely  affected   the  rare  users  of  the club particularly  several  serving and  retired government officials . The  club  has  always  believed in  encouraging senior government  officials   to  be  members  of  the  club. Many senior government officials have significantly contributed to the development of the Club. Hence  we should  not  take   any step which  results  in  senior government  officials shying  away  from becoming club  members. This point should also be kept in mind while taking a view in the matter.

Members are requested   to discuss and arrive at a consensus in this matter.
