Dear Parents and Well Wishers of GIIS,
We are seeking documentation relevant to the various issues being posted here. If you are in possession of relevant documentation (example: proving or disproving allegations of mismanagement or wastage) please share with us links or scanned copies.
[Updated 26/03/2008: As responsible parents, what we are looking for (with regard to the fee hike issue and also the general quality issue) is data on costs and revenue, including proof of cost escalations, and preferably breakdown into itemised cost, so that we can judge the arguments provided by Kaustubh Bodhankar, on the merits of each point. -Ed]
We welcome GIF or GIIS to present their own documentation in a like manner.
[We continue to welcome GIIS/GIF management to participate in this discussion. -Ed]
Important: Kindly ensure that personal or private information (if any) is blacked out/whited out before sharing your documentation. Please retain the original copies for your own reference as you may be called upon to produce the document in original form.
As part of the discovery process, we will try to verify whether received documents are authentic. However this is a very laborious process and we need your help as well.
Thank you in anticipation.
