Dear All:
 
We appreciate the positive response we have received from many of you regarding the new look and feel of SEFI. A lot of effort, time and resources have gone into it. We are glad that it shows. Hosting and maintenance of this site is expensive. A list with 5000+ members requires a lot of memory and storage requirements. The constant upgrade and dynamic nature of the website  requires high day to day maintenance.
 
Every trimester we are in an uncomfortable position when we have to pay out the quarterly charges. We quite simply do not have adequate resources and scramble to one of the diamond subscribers for a bailout.  This is  not a sustainable state of affairs.  We need SEFI members to take ownership of SEFI.
 
We therefore suggest a min annual contribution  of  Rs 500/- per SEFI member to ensure sustenance of site in its present state and room  for SEFI to grow further.
 
We hate to say this but we may be constrained to hold induction of new members due to space limitations and severe liquidity crunch which does not allow us to augment the site nor maintain it. We may  also further need to restrict certain privileges to donating members only from  January 1, 2010 if the finance situation does not improve.
 
Your cooperation is solicited to ensure that we do not have to take measures we would not like to. The details for donating to SEFI are as under:
 
 Sponsorship categories:

    * Diamond Category Sponsors - (Rs 20,000 per year)
    * Gold Category Sponsors (Rs 10,000 per year)
    * Silver Category Sponsors (Rs 5,000 per year)
    * Bronze Category Sponsors (Rs 2,500 per year)
    * General Category Sponsors (Rs 500 to 2499/- per year)

Sponsorships can be sent via crossed cheque/DD to

Dear Shiven
I am thankful to u and like minded people who think in such a way. Sefi will flourish only with the funds and not one but all must contribute for its existnce only then we sefians will be able to interact. The procedure for contributing sefi is given by the admin very clearly and it is also posted here up. Plseae go through the procedure and contribute. U can contribute by DD, Payee cheque or through e-payment
With Regards

It is my belief that SEFI need not have to charge any fee for the sake of newcomer in the field of Civil Engineering. Either it must be through self motivation towards the Forum or through sale of Nicely Edited Forum discussion publication to libraries of different member Engineering colleges or members of Engineering colleges. As far as my knowledge is concerned every Government grants good amount for purchase of Books and publications to Engineering Colleges. I will contribute to my best each year and same can be done by every registered members also but SEFI must not rely on only this fund as well.

Hi Er SKV,

A contribution of Rs. 1000 (I am not sure about the min. amount) per year
(< Rs. 100 per month)is nothing compared to the benefits you get. Consider is as attending a technical seminar.

Publishing books and selling them is a separate business, for which SEFI may not have resources.

Best wishes,
Subramanian

Hi,
I think that charging a nominal (minimal) fee should be good idea to keep upto pace with developments and information being shared on this board.

SEFI shutting down due to fund shortage should be the last thing to ever happen !!! (Just kidding)

Just one thing, fund transfer provision and application form etc should be made online to save the administrative costs, paperwork storage and efforts of so many people.

Thanks.
