Governing Body


Charutar Arogya Mandal amended its Constitution at the Special General Body Meeting held on March 27, 2018. The existing Constitution, since the inception of the Mandal in 1972, needed to be adapted to suit present-day realities and provide for a more professional governance structure.

The members unanimously voted to put in place a Board of Governors has replaced an archaic and elaborate structure consisting of the General Body, Governing Council & Governing Body. The Board of Governors would have a larger representation of members of the Mandal than the earlier structures. The more compact Board is expected to function like a company’s Board and would have committees like HR and Remuneration, Audit, and Finance to support its functioning.

Governing Body

Charutar Arogya Mandal (CAM) is structured so as to reflect its professionalism on the one hand and accountability to the community on the other.

In a historic move, the members of the Mandal, at the Special Governing Body Meeting held on March 27, 2018, amended its existing Constitution which has been in operation since the inception of the Mandal in 1972, so as to suit present-day realities and provide for a more professional governance structure. The amendments covered the important areas of membership criteria and the Governance mechanism. So far as the latter is concerned, the erstwhile Governing Council and Governing Body are now merged into a single Board of Governors. The new Board has 18 members; 9 members elected by the General Body, four experts to be nominated by the Board, 3 senior officers of the Mandal, the Chairman of Charutar Vidya Mandal, and the President of Karamsad Municipal Borough.
