About Us

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, Late Dr Sankaranarayana Subudhi Konchada, Sri Doki Giridhar Rao, Late 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, new members joined the Samaj. Our members  came forward and participated in various social activities like blood donation camps, free health check-up camps, reconstruction works aftermath of Odisha Super Cyclone in 1999, arranging talks on healthy lifestyles by doctors of our Samaj, donating cloths/blankets to the needy etc. 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. As of now, the Samaj boasts of 89 life members. The Samaj also has a separate category of members called the Patron members who have contributed to the finances of the Samaj, by donating 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.

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