It is very say that certain clubs which were built to cater to the needs of catholics have today started treating them as second class citizens.
Members who complaint are made to toe the line with the threats of expulsion.
Few people are aware it is mandatory that clubs should be registered under the Bombay Trust Act .
Today membership fees have been made so high that it is simply out of the reach of middle class catholics.
In fact there is a move to increase the fees of one such club from 1,50,000/- to 4,50,000/-.How many catholics can afford such high fees?
Rules are made in such a way that if membership facilities are not availed of at a particular time by members children they lose the rights of discounted membership fees.Why should this be so?
Certain clubs are controlled by a coterie of persons who run it like their personal property.These clubs were build by catholics for the welfare of catholics, but the sad part of it, is that today catholics are being deprived of these club facilites due to high and unreasonable fees and others are being pampered.
In fact if clubs increase membership fees the general catholic community should not remain silent spectators .
