IDA INCREASED 5.0% FROM 1-10-2022

Thursday, 5 September 2019


Dear Comrades,
This year, the monsoon rains have created havoc in many states – Andhra, Assam, Bihar, Chhatisgarh, Delhi, Gujarat, Haryana, Himachal, Jammu, Karnataka, Kerala, Madhya Pradesh, Maharastra, Punjab, Rajasthan, Tamilnadu, Telangana, UP, Uttrakhand ….
It is quite unusual. It is an extra ordinary situation.
Thanks to technology and timely warnings, lacs of people could be evacuated from their residences affected by floods. But, still hundreds have died. There is huge loss of property, crops and lifelong savings; some of which can never be regained.
It is time for us, as senior human beings who have seen many a tides in life, to help those suffering. As a WELARE organization we have done it in the past during floods/cyclones in Andhra, Chardham, Karnataka, Kerala, Orissa, Tamilnadu etc.
Let us declare the month of September 2019 as PMNRF donation drive month. As almost 20 states are affected this time, we cannot restrict the relief to any particular state. We must contribute maximum to the Prime Minister’s National Relief Fund (PMNRF). We wish to make over our contribution to a Cabinet Minister in a function at a suitable place. The amount should be sufficiently impressive. If we collect at least Rs 100 per head from each member, we can easily contribute Rs 50 lacs. Rs 100 per head means only Rs 5 for each State. But our activists may not be able to approach all the 50,000 members. Hence, some comrades willing can donate more. No amount is small and no amount is more in relief work in the given situation.
It is our duty as senior citizens. And, just imagine the Goodwill that we may gain throughout the country. I request all the activists at every level to take this Noble cause seriously. It will not be an impossible target to reach. We have 30 long days before us. Please start the work today and now itself.
(General Secretary), 29--8--2019
