I have great pleasure in announcing that the Foundation of Data Protection Professionals of India has formally come into existence today with the completion of the process of registration and allotment of the CIN/TNI/PAN numbers.
The Company is registered as a Section 8 Company limited by shares.
The activities of the Company will be managed by a Central Governing Council and supported by the Regional Governing Councils in major cities such as Mumbai, Chennai and Delhi. There may not be a Regional Council in Bangalore since the Central General Council will take care of the activities in Bangalore. A decision on whether we need a separate Regional Council for Bangalore may be considered later.
Each General Council is expected to have a President, Vice President and other Activity Group leaders. All designations are honorary.
I look forward to volunteers to take this initiative forward. There are some minor additional formalities to be completed which may take a couple of days.
We will then pen up membership registers to get members in first as “Subscribers” to the services of FDPPI and then those who are willing can opt to become “Members” with gives them entitlement to participate as Governing Council members.
Some of these details have been shared with those who have earlier registered as provisional members. But now a formal issue of the membership rules and procedures for admission would be released.
Please watch out for more information through these columns.
