GROUPS & THEIR ACTIVITIES

NRIPO's members are spread over the entire city of Pune. To facilitate effective interaction among members NRIPO has formed 28 area-wise groups. Individual group / cluster of adjoining groups have a Group Leader and one or two co-coordinators to facilitate functioning of groups.

Besides, members of the Executive Committee are deputed to attend meetings of groups assigned to them as observers to serve as link between NRIPO & Groups.

The feedback received from the Observer is very useful in formulating future programs . It is obligatory for the Groups  to hold regular monthly meetings to develop  meaningful relationship between members.Groups constitute the backbone of NRIPO.
