After 34 years, Delhi Man Gets Notice From Gymkhana To Deposit Rs 7.5 Lakh Just To Be In Waiting List

Published on 18 February, 2017 at 7:21 pm By

Taking membership at Delhi Gymkhana Club (DGC), where the Capital’s elite spend time, has always been in controversy.

In the past the club has been accused of not adhering to strict rules and regulations and of acting arbitrarily. Last month, a Delhi court restrained DGC from giving “out of turn” permanent membership to children of sitting members. Though the club maintained that it is a private entity being governed by its own rules, hence not amenable to court’s jurisdiction, the judge disagreed.

The prestigious club has been conceived to cater to a very selective group of people and even in that group, there is a long waiting list.

Recently, a Defence Colony resident, who has been in the waiting list for 34 years, received a letter from the club asking him to deposit Rs 7.5 lakh within three months, in order to continue to be in the waiting list.



The letter also said if the person chose to withdraw his name, the general committee would refund the amount in full.

It also said that membership would be granted only on creation of vacancy either on resignation or on demise of permanent member as the cap for maximum number is fixed.

When TopYaps contacted the club for their views, an official on the other side said the decision has been taken to keep the members intact. When asked then why Rs 7.5 lakh just to be on the waiting list, he said it has been a policy decision.

Clearly, it seems to be a deliberate attempt to demotivate all those who’re on the waiting list.
