The Trustees of the BPP have not conducted any physical / in-person Board Meeting in the BPP Board Room, at 209 Dr. D N Road, since the lockdown in March, 2020.

There are several major issues which can be discussed and decided with optimum efficiency only in a face-to-face, in-person meeting together, with access to all important files, documents and other cross-referencing material.

Two Trustees of the BPP, Mr. Kersi Randeria and Mr. Noshir Dadrawala are of the view since August 2020, that in-person meetings should be resumed, keeping in mind and strictly following all health and safety standards. Trustee Viraf Mehta in a recent email too has expressed willingness to attend at least one physical meeting to start with. Trustees Armaity Tirandaz and Xerxes Desai have not commented so far.

BPP Trustees – Kersi J. Randeria and Noshir Dadrawala – have once again requested a physical meeting at the BPP Board room on Tuesday, 15th December, 2020. However, till noon of Friday, trustees Randeria and Dadrawala have received no written or oral confirmation.

It is hoped that the Board meeting is convened and conducted in the Board Room on Tuesday, 15th December, 2020 at 5:00 pm, which is the usual time.

Trustees Randeria and Dadrawala have made it clear that they will not attend the meeting if it is once again on the virtual Zoom platform.

If there is no confirmation from trustees Mrs. Tirandaz, Mr. Mehta and Mr. Dastur by Sunday, 13th December, 2020, then Trustees Randeria and Dadrawala will be in the Board Room of the BPP to meet members of the community on Tuesday, 15th December, 2020, by prior appointment only from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm.

We once again request our other three colleague Trustees – Armaity Tirandaz, Viraf Mehta and Xerxes Dastur – to confirm their presence, even though so far, they have resisted the idea of a physical meeting in the Board Room. We really do look forward to resuming normal meetings in the new normal.
