My Dear XIMB alumni,
Greetings of the season and a very happy New Year to each one of you and your families. I hope all of you are doing well and rocking!
On several occasions, whenever I had the opportunity of interacting with some of you, this question had come regarding what was the status of the contributions you had given to the Alumni fund when you had been here as a student, and what was being done about it. I am sure you had not received any satisfactory reply so far from anybody in the institute. When I had taken over as the Alumni Coordinator, in July last year, I had promised myself that I shall definitely try to answer this vexatious problem, and set all minds at rest. I am very happy to state that the Institute has taken a decision to make the audited accounts of the Alumni fund public and also to let you know what is the corpus that has been built up so far from the one-time contributions you had met before leaving the institute.
Accordingly, the Alumni office shall be uploading the audited accounts statement of the XIMB Alumni Association, as well as a statement detailing the corpus built over the years. We plan to update you every year from now on as soon as the audited statements for the year is ready. The AGM for the XIMB Alumni Association is scheduled to be held on the 28th of January, 2017, where the audited statements would be tabled.
My warm regards to each one of you.
Prof M N Tripathi
