Member’s Portal is released.

We are happy to release the portal for members of LCHSLV. This portal is under active development and will provide many facilities to its members including online submission of forms, viewing records, changing of addresses, etc. These facilities will be added to the system incrementally. Members are invited to submit their comments and request for implementation of a desired feature. We will try to implement if it is useful for larger number of members.

Minimum Number is Reached

We are happy to inform that we have received total 101 number of applications for membership of LCHSLV. We are processing the documents and we shall apply for registration shortly.

We thanks for all your support and participation.

Amount to be paid at the time of Enrolment

It is decided to start monthly deposit scheme only after registration of the Society. The value of monthly deposit by each member is also under reconsideration.

In view of this, it is hereby clarified that the amount to be paid at the time of enrolment shall be calculated as follows:

BARC, Visakhapatnam Staff / LEADERS Member

Rs.50/- (Admission Fee) + Rs.100*(Number of Shares)
So the minimum amount to be paid is Rs.150/-

All other DAE Staff / Ex-Staff

Rs.500/- (Admission Fee)

Enrolment of Membership

It is a great pleasure to announce commencement of Enrolment of Membership of LCHSLV. There are two types of membership viz. ordinary members & nominal members.

Nominal membership can be availed by depositing Rs.500/- (non-refundable joining fee) plus refundable and interest bearing monthly deposit of Rs.500/- or more (in multiples of hundred). Nominal members will not be able to buy shares of the society nor they can claim eligibility for becoming Director or Executive Committee Member. But they will enjoy all other benefits of the Society. Individuals, who are eligible to become member of LEADERS, but are not member of LEADERS can only join as nominal member.

To become ordinary member, you must be a member of LEADERS ( or you must be a staff of BARCF, Visakhapatnam. So, if you are not a staff of BARCF, Visakhatapatnam and wish to join as ordinary member of the Society, then you must also join LEADERS. Subscription of LEADERS will be deducted from Interest and Dividend accrued every year, so there is no need to pay it separately (declaration at the time of joining will be required).
