Rule 13 of the Kanara Saraswat Association mandates that three members of the Managing Committee retires by rotation at every annual general meeting. Accordingly, a notice was published on the notice board of the Association on 4th April 2020 that Shri. Jairam K Khambadkone, Dr. Prakash S Mavinkurve, Shri. Dilp P Sashital would retire by rotation and Smt. Ashwini Prashant who was inducted as a member arising out of a casual vacancy, would retire at the next annual general meeting. Further Rule 31 read with Rule 32 requires the Association to conduct elections to the managing committee in the place of the retiring members which after completion of the election process new members are elected at the annual general meeting.
The managing committee after much deliberation at its meeting held by video conference on 23 April 2020 has come to the unanimous decision that conducting election to the managing committee of KSA in the present and evolving circumstances arising out of the Covid-19 pandemic, would not be conducive considering the physical/social distancing norms mandated by the Central and State Governments and recommendation of medical experts. Accordingly, it was decided that the managing committee would not hold the election for replacement of the retiring members of the managing committee of the Association for the year 2020-21 and would recommend election of the aforesaid retiring members to the managing committee without contest for a period of one year at the next annual general meeting.
The President, Vice-President and managing committee of the Association request the indulgence of the members of the Kanara Saraswat Association in this regard and further request that the retiring members be re-elected without contest for the limited period of one year at the next annual general meeting.
