Who we are

A number of our Kalinga Vysya community members are staying in Delhi National Capital Region (NCR) practising different professions as part of their job requirements. A strong desire was felt to bring all the members of our community staying in different parts of Delhi NCR (including Faridabad, Ghaziabad and Gurgaon) to a common platform for a strong social bonding and to help each other. Accordingly, the Samaj was formed and registered on June 06, 1995 with Registrar of Societies, Delhi. With this modest aim the Samaj was started in 1995 by Dr Tarnala Banambar Patra, Sri Silla Koteshwara Rao, Dr Sankaranarayana Subudhi Konchada, Sri Doki Giridhar Rao, Sri Satish Kumar Tankala, Sri K Venugopal, Smt S.Radha, Smt Konchada Girija Subudhi and Tangudu Sashibhushan Rao as the founding members among others.

During its journey through the years, many new members have joined and the Samaj has been steadily growing. As of now, the Samaj boasts of more than 90 life members. Samaj regularly tries to reach out to our community members staying in Delhi NCR for enrolling as its life members. The life membership fee is presently fixed at Rs. 5000/- per adult member of Kalinga Vysya Family which is to be paid once in a lifetime. The Samaj also has a separate category of members called the Patron members who have contributed to the finances of the Samaj, by contributing Rs. 15,000 each. Each life member will have privileges like right to vote during election of Governing Body Members (which is held once in five years) and also can contest elections for any post in the Governing Body of the Samaj.

Our members have come forward and participated in various social activities like blood donation camps, free health check-up camps, reconstruction works in the aftermath of Odisha Cyclone in 1999, donating clothes/ blankets to the needy etc. Also there have been various Talks on Healthy lifestyles by Doctors of our Samaj during general body gatherings.

The affairs of the Samaj are managed by its Governing body which meets periodically, sorts out issues of Governance and chalks out plans for the year ahead. The Governing Body is working hard to form this KVS (Delhi) as the Umbrella Organisation for all Kalinga Vysya Samaj groups operating at various locations in the country.
