In a major development, the whole board/governing council of Delhi Gymkhana club was suspended on Monday. An administrator will now be appointed by the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA).
The development comes a day after the club sent a notice to the members to clear the dues worth Rs 1.2 crore.
“The total amount of bills outstanding as of date is Rs 1,20,00,000, which includes monthly bills for Jan 21/ defaulter dues, and dues from members whose names have been recommended for termination,” the 107-year-old colonial-era club said in a notice on Sunday.
The notice added that to avoid an embarrassment of refusal by the club staff to honour their order, members are requested to kindly monitor and ensure their expenses do not exceed Rs 30,000 anytime.
The notice also cited the Article 27 saying, a member who has not settled the club bill in full, “shall not have the right of attending meetings of the club or of voting on any matter, and may be debarred by the General Committee from using the club.” The notice added that members are advised to kindly clear their dues within 14 days of presentation of bills.
In April last year, the club had moved a petition in National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT), seeking a change of management of the Delhi Gymkhana Club by immediate appointment of government’s 15 nominees as administrators in the General Committee and transfer of absolute power to run the affairs.
