Membership to Shree Chargam Dasha Porwad Mahamandal (CDPMM) is open to CDP families staying anywhere in the world.
A. Membership Category and Fee Structure
There will be only one membership category, namely ‘Life Member’. This is a family membership. Membership is open to all families of CDPC including daughters married into non-CDPC. Life Membership fee per Member Family has been decided at Rs. 5,000/- (Rupees five thousand only).
B. Member Family
Membership would be for a ‘family’. ‘Family’ is defined as a unit consisting of Head Member, his/ her spouse and their unmarried sons and daughters. Married sons and daughters are required to take independent membership, whether or not staying with parents under one roof. All eligible families are encouraged to become Life Member.
C. Daughters Married into non-CDPC
Family of CDP daughter/ sister married into non-CDPC with Hindu culture is eligible to become Life Member of CDPMM, like any CDP family, with all membership benefits. However her next generation family (i.e. CDP daughters’ son or daughter married into non-CDP family) is not eligible to become member of CDPMM.
D. Dependent Parents with Insufficient Means
Parents and elderly persons who do not have sufficient means to look after themselves are not automatically included in ‘Family’ of their son/ daughter. Their son or daughter who normally looks after them (or any one of sons/ daughters looking after them) is required him/herself to be a primary member of CDPMM and pay additional membership fee equal to 25% of normal fees, for inclusion of dependent parent(s) as additional persons in their primary membership.
Note: Parents and elderly persons having sufficient means to look after them are not eligible for such concession; they are required to maintain their separate membership.
E. Dependent Person(s)/ Family with Insufficient Means
When any person(s)/ family with insufficient means is (are) dependent on any other person/ family or on CDPC in general, membership committee may at its discretion accept such person(s) or family as member, on receipt of appropriate concessional fee, either from him/ her or any other member willing to adopt him/ her/ them and pay for the membership fees (or from local CDPM to which he/ she/ family may belong). Such concessional fees shall not be less than 25% of normal fees. This provision is to be used only in exceptional circumstances for a few deserving and needy persons/ families.
F. Membership of Local CDPM
Prior membership of local CDPM in the place of residence is a requirement for becoming member of CDPMM (except as noted below). However membership of local CDPM does not automatically entitle a member to membership of CDPMM.
Cities and towns where there are at least 20 families of CDPC should have a local CDPM. Membership criteria, fees, rules, regulations and such other aspects of local CDPMs are to be decided by CDP families in those cities/ towns.
Note: For scattered families not staying close to any local CDPM, requirement of prior membership of local CDPM may be waived.
G. Membership of CDPMM a Pre-requisite
Effective Life Membership at the time of participation in activities or availing facilities or benefits from CDPMM is a pre-requisite. (This however does not apply to beneficiaries of welfare activities for other families/ communities in the neighborhoods or society at large.)
H. Review of Membership Fees/ Contributions/ Donation Amounts
Membership fees and minimum qualifying contribution/ donation amounts for various ‘titles’ as stated hereafter would be subject to upward review from time to time. However there would be minimum 3 years duration between two consecutive upward revisions in such fees/ amounts.
Information to members
Members would be kept duly informed about realistic plans for development and growth of CDPMM and introduction of various activities, benefits and facilities. Each member would be appropriately communicated about progress and achievements in respect of CDPMM’s programmes and activities periodically.
Expectations from Members/ Code of Conduct
