Only "Life Members or Institutional Members can become Office-bearers or vote in elections. Life-membership for resident Indians at present is Rs. 5000/ only.

Donations:

Since membership fee alone will not create enough resources to pursue our goals, donations are requested from those in a position to make them. Those in a position to donate premises/properties in different major cities of Asia are requested to donate them as it would help us to open new branches.

As many are aware, we began in June 1999 with another NGO, namely, "Forum for Confederation in the Sub-Continent"(FOCIS) which is a registered body and had the limited goal of uniting  SAARC countries for Peace & Prosperity in South Asia. However, soon after the registration, the situation in this region deteriorated sharply because of three factors namely the Kargil War in which Pakistan attacked India, the Military Coup in Pakistan and the hijacking of an Indian plane from Kathmandu to Kandahar in Taliban-controlled Afghanistan. Therefore, "Association for Asian Union was launched in August 2001. However, an account in the name of "Forum for Confederation in the Sub-Continent exists. It also has tax exemption under Indian Income Tax Act. Details of this account are given below:

Account name: "Forum for Confederation in the Sub-Continent" Account Number: 00881000062826, Branch code: 88, MICR Code: 110240014, IFSC Code: HDFC0000088, Branch Name: Ansals Arcade,-Sector-18, Noida, Uttar Pradesh, India-201301,

Earlier we had a separate website for FOCIS. However, now the Preamble and Aims & Objects have been stated in the chapter on "Sub-Regions" on this website. Those interested can see.
