Trust Meeting

As our members are family person, also engaged in jobs or business, holidays or weekends are left to carry out trust activities. We also believe in less talk and more activity. Therefore, trust meeting will be held on quarterly basis. Like; April, July, October, January. Most of the meetings will be held online to save time and cut unnecessary event costs. These records will be maintained. Physical meetings might be held if required. In case of emergency, the number of meetings may increase. A meeting will be recognized if more than 50% members of trust participate.

Trust Office

The trust will operate national wise and the next president or secretary may belong to any other state. Therefore, the trust office may be shifted to next president’s or house or secretary’s residence if required. Well connectivity with rest part of India should also be considered. President can keep the officials documents of trust. The financial papers will remain with the treasurer. Any members of the trust can keep any copies of office data or financial data. The advisory committee would take the final call and look after the shifting process.

Collection  and Operation of Funds

Anyone associated with our trust by any means must contribute 100 INR/Year. This may be revised with inflation. If anyone is more capable, may donate any amount one time or monthly basis. All donations to this trust account must be sent online directly to the Trust account. None on behalf of trust is allowed to take cash by issuing any receipt or any verbal promise. The trust strictly discourages any cash donation.

A bank account can be opened in the name of trust at any bank by the treasurer and anyone or two other members of the trust. The operational mode will be any or survivor. The treasurer will keep the passbook, cheque book in his custody. The bank should not permit direct cash withdrawal anyway. The bank should never issue any ATM cum Debit card, any loan or credit card. These are strictly forbidden. The treasurer can give his personal mobile number to bank for easy operation of the account. The treasurer only can take Net Banking or Mobile Banking facility and has sole right to transact in the account by following some general guidelines.

1.      Whatever donations the trust is receiving. People give it out of respect for Baba Vishuddhananda. It’s someone’s share of its hard work. The Trust should be sensible before spending every rupee.

2.      It may not be possible for treasurer to track every contribution. But, treasurer must note down the details of every debit transaction in Trust’s account.

3.      Before any debit transaction in trust account, the treasurer must get an order passed in trust meeting. In case of emergency, the treasurer must give a notice to the trust members one hour before making the debit transaction. If being asked, the treasurer must show the order copy. Failing which it will be considered as a financial offence in the eyes of trust members. Once, a financial year ends, Audit has been done. The treasurer is not required to keep the records of past year order copies.

4.      The debit transaction must be an account pay so that the trust can trace where the fund is going. Like; for organising any event of the trust, anyone will be made in charge in the meeting. Trust funds will be transferred directly to his account. Now, it is the in charge’s duty to do expenses with proper documentation and satisfy the treasurer at the end.

5.      During the trust meeting, treasurer will brief the latest financial transaction.

6.      In case, the trust requires fund and the treasurer is unable to perform his duty due to any reasons. Other account holders of the trust bank account can bank transfer at branch to the required account by collecting a cheque earlier from the treasurer with providing a general notice in trust meeting or group.

7.      The treasurer must assure the security of funds and abide by the safety procedure while operating the bank account. In case of any Banking fraud, post appropriate investigation, individual (s) found to be guilty will be held liable.

8.      Income and expense or the audit report of the trust should be published every year after each financial year ends.

Taxation and Audit

The trust strictly forbade any mode of cash transaction. No donation will be collected in cash. It must be directly transferred to the trust bank account, same way cash withdrawal is not allowed, the person in charge assigned certain duty will take trust money directly its account and will be liable for that money to use properly. The treasurer will realize the accounts from that assignee. The trust must abide by the taxation rules as implemented by the govt of India time to time and will follow the office protocol.

Grievance Cell

This cell is the most respected body of the trust. Here is no minimum or maximum limit of member. Only those who has served as a trust member full term and retired at the age of 70 will join Grievance cell and will remain life time. Their rich experience will be the biggest asset of the trust. The grievance cell is expected to be impartial, highly morale and ethics oriented. The cell will not interfere in regular activities of trust. When there will be a crisis in the management of trust. The grievance cell should come to rescue like; election of president or vice president, secretary or termination of any trust member.

Expansion of the Trust

Right now, we are operating at a national level. It may be possible that activities of our trust become much higher in some state. In that scenario, It’s possible that the state replicates our operating model and establish a separate legal entity of our trust at state level.

For example; Joint secretary of state would be state secretary and Vishuddhananda Sarathi would be the state president. Later; the best performers among the district secretaries would be elected, replace the state secretary and the best District Vishuddhananda Sarathi performer would be elected and replace the state president after his retirement. Central committee would not interfere in this election and the state secretary would be automatically recognized as Joint Secretary by the Central Committee vice versa. But, make sure the “Vishuddhananda Sarathi”-title at any level (state, district, blocks) status can only be assigned by the Central Committee president and none else.

Please keep in mind there would be states where our trust force may be weak and we need funds to operate there.  After, setting up a separate trust at state level, they can also open a separate bank account. But, 10% of net revenue in a financial year of that state must be shared to the central committee bank account.

If there happen any crisis at state level committee, if being asked, the central committee can interfere then to fix the issue. Our purpose should to help each other and grow together. United we stand, divided we fall. Thus, the legal structure of this trust should keep expanding and reach to the every households of India.

As good and bad stays together. It’s also possible; a group of people goes against this system and separated themselves from everything. It’s absolutely fine. The central committee will immediately withdraw all recognition and give them a peaceful exit. Their supporters who wants to stay with us, may join to our central committee and for the rest exiting, only God would be responsible not our Guru parampara.

To keep a workforce ready to execute the activities of the trust that may be any religious/charitable/social event.

There might be meetings between the trust committee and Vishuddhananda Sewaks to outline our future goals.

We will definitely communicate time to time about our progress or via any social media platform or email news letter.

Words of Caution

With each passing time, the trends keep changing, if we don’t upgrade our selves accordingly, we will be lost. Whenever, required, the existing committee members may amend the trust deed or way of functioning. But, one must make sure not to exploit this opportunity. I am giving. We do hard work to earn lots of money throughout our life. Have anyone thought of earning Good Karma? None will remain forever. Only our karma will follow us beyond death not money. It’s expected from the honourable members of the trust not to think about their own prestige and dignity or any materialistic interests, try to ignore small mistakes of other, not to fight each other, but to contribute ourselves for the purpose of Baba Vishuddhananda. He is our only Guru. Do good to the society, do good to ourselves. Be regular and disciplined in sadhana. Maintain love, humanity and respect towards everyone. Try to help each other. Our sacrifice should be the example for our future committee members and Our vision will be keep setting these example more higher and higher with each passing generations. With all my prayers to Baba Vishuddhananda, that’s all from my side.

Jai Gurudev! Guru Kripa Hi Kebolam!
