“Every moment wasted looking back, keeps us from moving forward” Hillary Clinton The KCA is a multi‐faceted organization, perhaps unlike any other organization we are familiar with. It is first & foremost, a community organisation serving the interests of the Kanara Catholic community in Mumbai. It is not a club or a gymkhana, but a charitable organization that is meant to serve the community. And it enjoys income tax exemptions for the same. The KCA was founded in 1901 and it undertook several initiatives to help the community – including setting up cooperative societies for housing, education and loans. In its Diamond Jubilee year in 1961, it decided that it should do more – and the KCA building ‘Yuvakalaya’ became a reality in 1969, with a community hall & a hostel for young men. Next year, in 2019, we will celebrate 50 years of the KCA building. 50 years since the KCA last did something of significance. Over the past 3 years, the Managing Council has worked hard to get the KCA back on its feet, restore a sense of community & brotherhood among members, and make it the respected community organisation that it ought to be. We believe however, what we really need to address is much larger: How do we make the KCA more relevant to the 21st century and the times we live in. What is our vision for the next 50 years? The next 100 years? Some work has been done and we believe a platform for growth has been created for the institution. Far more needs to be done, if we are to restore the KCA to the place of pre‐eminence it once enjoyed. The journey of the past 3 years has not been without its criticisms & flaws. Several matters could have been handled better. Several things could have been done differently. Such is the nature of any journey. We learn. We improve. We move forward. With the election of new office bearers at the forthcoming AGM, the 3 year term of this Managing Council comes to an end. It has been a privilege to serve you, dear members. And to serve the community to which we all belong. We hope that the new Managing Council will continue to take the KCA forward – with new ideas, new dreams and a new energy. After all, the Motto of the KCA for the past 117 years has been: Vis Unita Fortior! Together ever Forward! The Managing Council 2015‐2018



REPORT OF THE MANAGING COUNCIL TO THE MEMBERS OF KANARA CATHOLIC ASSOCIATION, MUMBAI The Managing Council is pleased to present the Annual Report of the Kanara Catholic Association, Mumbai (KCA) together with the Audited Statement of Accounts for the year ended March 31, 2018, annexed herewith. The report of the various services and activities of the Association, in furtherance of its Aims & Objectives is as follows:

1. Community Services The list of Community Services which are provided by the KCA to members and non-members alike, irrespective of caste or creed, was expanded, with Financial Assistance and Sports & Fitness being added to the list. Rules, regulations, guidelines & forms for all KCA Community Services are available on the KCA website and at the KCA Office.

A summary of the progress made is as follows: A

Community Halls

 B

Young Men’s Hostel

 

The facilities and amenities were upgraded which saw an increase in the usage of the halls. Discounts for bulk bookings / multiple bookings were introduced which resulted in improved capacity utilisation and an increase in income of 24% as compared to the previous year. Updated Rules, regulations, guidelines & forms have been introduced from May 2017 onwards which we believe will help streamline the operation & usage of the halls. KCA Members are encouraged to use the halls for their functions and events - member discounts are available. The hostel continues to be well patronised by young men from all over the country. During the year the occupancy dipped slightly due to the extensive repairs & renovation of the hostel area, including some of the rooms, the bathrooms, common area and mess area. The repair of the terrace which is directly above the rooms was taken up as approved at the AGM held in September 2017. The leakages have been addressed and currently the internal plastering work & painting of the hostel rooms is underway. Some pending work will remain, which we hope the next Managing Council will take up in right earnest, in time for the Golden Jubilee of the hostel next year in 2019. Updated rules & forms were introduced in 2017 to streamline the admission process and other rules governing the hostel. With effect from January 1, 2018, mess facilities are provided through a panel of caterers who provide meals to hostel residents. Hostel ~1~

Financial Assistance

 D

Sports Fitness

&

residents are free to select their choice of meals / caterers and are also provided an option to have their meals outside the KCA as per their convenience. Accordingly, the mess of the KCA is functional, but meals are no longer prepared by KCA Staff. This is in line with the decision to outsource various non-core activities of the KCA as approved at the AGM held on September 3, 2017. In line with its largely charitable objectives, KCA Education Assistance Fund and the KCA Medical Assistance Fund to provide financial aid to institutions and individuals were launched in October 2016 with a corpus of Rs 20 lacs. Guidelines, and eligibility are published on the KCA website and the KCA newsletter. All applications are scrutinised and approved by the Social & Charitable Sub-committee of the KCA under the overall supervision of the Managing Council. All donations from October 1, 2016 onwards are made from the KCA Education Assistance Fund and the KCA Medical Assistance Fund. During the year ended March 31, 2018, an amount of Rs 301,105 was disbursed from the KCA Education Assistance Fund and Rs 220,000 was disbursed from the KCA Medical Assistance Fund. Details of the beneficiaries have been published in the Notes to Accounts. Sports & the physical welfare of members & others, is one of the Aims & Objectives of the Association, and has been an important part of KCA activities for several decades. The Sports & Fitness Centre was formally inaugurated and blessed by Bishop Percival Fernandez in April 2017, and offers various sporting facilities including badminton, table-tennis, athletics, fitness, yoga, etc. Usage of the sports facilities has increased greatly during the year, under the supervision of the Sports Sub-committee. All of the income earned from sports is ploughed back into improving the sports facilities. Our facilities were again upgraded and improved during the year. This year the leakage from the atrium area was addressed and the roof was repaired. The atrium area has also been renovated & painted, with new flooring added. KCA is soon becoming a fitness & sports hub in Bandra with more than 250 persons signing up for sports membership, which is offered at a nominal cost.

2. Cultural & Recreation Activities One of the primary Aims & Objective of the KCA is 'to foster a spirit of union, friendship and self help among the members of the Association and others’. Cultural & Recreation activities, have, over the ~2~


years, been instrumental in bringing members together & creating the bonhomie that has been the hallmark of the KCA. The Cultural & Recreation Sub-committee is responsible for the four major events in the KCA calendar each year. Once every quarter, members have an opportunity to come together at the KCA premises in Bandra to celebrate the spirit of community. All four events were well organised by the Cultural & Recreation Sub-committee and saw a large turn-out of members, their families & friends. In addition, the ever-popular Housie is well attended by 200-250 members and guests every week.

A summary of the Cultural & Recreation activities is given below: A

Thanksgiving Mass

B

Raindrops

C

Monti Fest

Held on the first Saturday after Easter Sunday, usually in April each year.  For the past 3 years, the Thanksgiving Mass has been celebrated by KCA Member, Bishop Percival Fernandez and followed by a Thanksgiving Dinner and members get-together.  In 2016, the event included a special thanksgiving to the Lord for the restarting of activities after a gap of 7 years.  In 2017, the event included the inauguration of the Sports & Fitness Centre by Bishop Percival Fernandez.  In 2018, the event included an appreciation of the Staff & 40-50 Members of the KCA who serve on the Managing Council & various Subcommittees, giving of their valuable time & expertise. A monsoon get-together that encompasses a special event, held in July each year.  In 2016, the event included the launch of the Amchi Khobor newsletter as well as the KCA website.  In 2017, the event included the Young Achievers Awards celebrating the success of our youngsters in Academics, Music & Sports.  In 2018, the event included the launch of the KCA Counseling Center which aims to provide a much needed service to members & nonmembers alike. The biggest festival of Kanara Catholics, held in September, with Konkani Mass and special Monti Fest spiritual & culinary customs.  In 2016 - the event held for the first time by KCA Mumbai was on the same day as the AGM with traditional Konkani music thrown-in.  The tradition continued in 2017 and the event marked the blessing of the new KCA Grotto in the compound. Many more KCA Members also attended the AGM which was in line with the objective of getting more of our members to take an interest in the Association and attend the AGM.  In 2018, since the Election will be held on the same day, we will not have the Monti Fest Mass, but a short prayer service during which new paddy and sugarcane will be blessed for distribution to Members, & their families. ~3~

Christmas Cheer

E

Housie

A joyous event in the Catholic calendar, held in December and celebrated in true ‘Kodial’ style!  The event in 2016, held after several decades by KCA Mumbai, was an enjoyable community celebration, with Santa coming down the chimney and a traditional brass band playing Christmas & Konkani music.  In 2017, we expanded the scope of the celebration by having a special children’s party for 50 underprivileged kids, prior to the members gettogether; it was followed up with a special celebration & lunch for our hostelites and staff in keeping with the Christmas spirit.  Housie was re-started in June 2016, after a gap of 7 years; the weekly Housie is popular with members and non-members alike.  A special Housie Sub-committee with a dedicated band of volunteers conducts the Housie sessions in a highly professional manner.

Digital Initiatives

  

2016 marked the revival of the KCA News Magazine; formerly known as the 'Mangalorean Review', first published in 1920, and wound-up in 1941. Its 2016 avatar, aptly named 'Amchi Khobor' and helmed by a fine Editorial Team, features more than just information about our events and activities. Articles on the history of the KCA, important personalities who shaped the growth of the organization and profiles of prominent living Kanarites who have made a mark in their respective fields, makes every issue an inspiring and informative read. Special thanks to the Editorial Sub-committee who have brought out 9 issues quarter after quarter for the past 2 years. The KCA website, www.kcamumbai.org was launched in 2016 & is updated on a regular basis. Besides providing information about the KCA and its various services & activities, it also serves as a platform for our members & well-wishers to keep in touch & be updated about happenings & events in our community. By opening up a new channel of communication, we also hope the website will bring about a greater degree of transparency in the working of the KCA with regular announcements & updates from the Managing Council being posted on the site. Besides the website, other digital initiatives like regular e-mails to members, accepting mobile payments and using various google app services have enhanced the efficiency and effectiveness of our various services & activities. The KCA, due to its largely charitable aims and objectives, is now a registered NGO with NASSCOM, and is enabled to get various software and applications free of cost or at highly discounted prices. Regular communication via e-mail & updates published on the website keeps members updated on the happenings at the KCA. ~4~


4. Membership Subsequent to the changes of KCA Rules & Regulations, as approved at the AGM held in 2017, Life Membership was re-opened after a gap of 8 years. We are happy to inform you that 21 new Life Members & 3 Ordinary Members were admitted as Members in June 2018. Further, 22 Ordinary Members upgraded their membership to Life Membership.

5. KCA Building Matters Building Repairs Our ‘Yuvakalaya’ will be celebrating its Golden Jubilee in 2019. Over the past 3 years, the Managing Council has overseen substantial repairs & renovation of various areas of the building, as communicated in various issues of the Amchi Khobor as well as the website. As communicated earlier, being a charitable institution enjoying income-tax exemptions, we had a statutory obligation to spend the accumulated amounts in the Repair Fund within a stipulated period. We cannot carry forward reserves or surpluses beyond the amounts stipulated by the law. ~5~


Review of Compliance of various aspects of our Building As our members are aware, the status of KCA building has been a matter of great interest among members of the association. Built in the 1960s and inaugurated in 1969, the building has been both a pride of the KCA as well as a contentious issue in many respects. After all, it is a community asset and we need to look at the best way to use this asset for the benefit of the community. Diverse views have been expressed over the years on how the building should be used, whether it was only meant to be a hostel, whether the conversion of part of the hostel to community halls in 2006-07 was justified etc. As the building reaches 50 years of existence in 2019, it was felt that we should do a comprehensive review of various matters, before we could have any meaningful discussion on the same. In December 2017, the Managing Council appointed an Architect to look into various aspects of the building including important matters like fire compliance, health & sanitation permissions, residential vs commercial usage, structural stability and drawings and the FSI status as per the latest CRZ / DP regulations. The initial report has been submitted by the Architect and various compliance issues including fire safety, structural audit etc., are being addressed. With the imminent changes of CRZ rules and the notification of the new Development Plan, several possibilities open up with the use of additional FSI including re-developing our 50 year old building. We hope that in the months ahead, the new Managing Council will be able hold a meaningful dialogue with members and we can collectively, as a community, decide how we can better use this community asset for the benefit of the community.

6. Sub-committees The Managing Council is assisted in the running of the Association by a dedicated team of KCA Members who are part of the various Sub-committees. The following Sub-committees were operational during the year: Sub-committee

The Managing Council places on record its sincere appreciation of the time, dedication & effort of the Sub-committee members, who have been instrumental in the revival of the various KCA services and activities over the past 3 years..

7. Legal Matters Noble Chambers Matter In 2009, the KCA filed a suit in the Small Causes Court, Mumbai against Model Co-operative Bank, seeking it’s eviction from the KCA’s rented office in the Noble Chambers building at Fort. The 500 sq. ft. office has been the registered office of the KCA for several decades. It is also the registered office of the Mangalorean Catholic Educational Co-operative Society (MCECS) and the Mangalorean Catholic Co-operative Credit Society (MCCCS), which was converted into a Cooperative Bank in 1998, as allowed by the Reserve Bank of India at that time. The MCECS and MCCCS were closely linked with KCA and considered ‘sister’ organizations since their formation in 1919 and 1916 respectively. A detailed article on the Noble Chambers Office has been published in our Amchi Khobor news magazine (Jul-Sep 2017 Issue), giving members a background and context of the issue at hand. Progress has been very slow in the case over the past 9 years, despite substantial time, efforts and money being spent over the years. Moreover, any decision in the Small Causes Court is subject to appeal in the higher courts. The Managing Council believes an early settlement of this vexed issue is in the best interest of the Association and the Kanarite community at large. As discussed at the last AGM, some discussions were held with Model Co-operative Bank in the hope of finding a solution through Arbitration or Conciliation. At the AGM, the General Body also passed a resolution to this effect. However, despite various efforts on this front, no headway was made and the status quo continues.

~7~


Charity Commissioner Matter We are happy to inform members that all matters at the Office of the Charity Commissioner have been cleared & brought up to date, including the recent rule changes passed at the last AGM. Final Orders for the same were received in June 2018.

8. Staff The professionalizing of the working of the KCA was one of the stated objectives of the Managing Council. Various initiatives have been taken towards meeting these objectives, including computerizing of most activities of the Association, establishing rules, regulations & forms for our community services, implementing an ERP Accounting System and, most importantly, recruiting professional staff. Given the breadth of its operations and the increasing complexity of the tax & regulatory framework under which the KCA operates, it was felt that part-time honorary work by KCA Members would be insufficient for the organisation to meet either its statutory obligations or its Aims & Objectives. In 2016, a senior manager was recruited to manage & oversee the operations of the KCA. Reporting to the Managing Council, the senior manager also acts as the head of staff of the organization. In line with best practices followed at several organizations similar to the KCA, the Managing Council needs to operate like ‘Board of Directors’, setting goals and formulating policy, while leaving the execution & implementation of policies to professional & competent staff.

9. Conclusion The Elections will be held at the AGM on September 30, 2018 - to elect the new Office Bearers for the period 2018-21. With the election, the term of the current Office Bearers and Managing Council for the period 2015-18 comes to an end. The Managing Council once again places on record its thanks and appreciation to the Members of the Sub-committees as well as the Staff who have played important roles in the revitalizing and reenergizing of the Association. Most importantly, we thank all of you Members for the trust you have reposed in the Council and the support you have extended over the past 3 years. We sincerely hope that the spirit of goodwill & peace that has prevailed over the past 3 years continues and that you will extend the same support to the new Managing Council as they take over. With your continued goodwill & support, and blessings from the Almighty Lord, we believe that as a community, we can move forward in unity and together, we can make the KCA an institution we can all be proud of.

INDEPENDENT AUDITOR’S REPORT To, The Members, KANARA CATHOLIC ASSOCIATION We have examined the Balance Sheet of KANARA CATHOLIC ASSOCIATION as on 31ST MARCH 2018 and the Income and Expenditure Account for the Year ended on that date. These financial statements are the responsibility of the management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit.

Management’s Responsibility for the Financial Statements Management is responsible for the preparation and presentation of these financial statements that give a true and fair view of the financial position, financial performance and cash flows of the Company in accordance with the Accounting Principles generally accepted in India including the Accounting Standards. This responsibility also includes the design, implementation and maintenance of internal control relevant to the preparation and presentation of financial statements that give a true and fair view and are free from material misstatements, whether due to fraud or error.

Auditor’s Responsibility Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit. We have conducted our audit in accordance with the Standards on Auditing issued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India. Those Standards require that we comply with ethical requirements and plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. The procedures selected depend on the auditor’s judgement, including the assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments, the auditor considers internal control relevant to the Company’s preparation and fair presentation of the financial statements in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the entity’s internal control. An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of the accounting estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements.

~ 18 ~


We believe that the audit evidence that we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion. In our opinion and to the best of our information and according to the explanations given to us, and on representations obtained from the management, the financial statements give the information required by The Maharashtra Public Trust Act in the manner so required and give a true and fair view in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in India. In the case of the Balance Sheet of the state of affairs of the society as on 31st March 2018. In the case of the Income and Expenditure Account of the Surplus for the Year ended on that date.
