From Feb 2019, we wish to implement certain guidelines for fees payment, cancellations and intimation.

This is only to ensure smooth communication between Team GGIM and parents so as to have a hassle-free interaction and neither of the two shall be at a loss. We need to do this as no. of participants is increasing day by day. It is becoming really difficult to keep a track of all records, accounting, rearrangements of resources if we continue to adjust participation, fees adjustments till the last moment.

We sincerely hope that all parents will understand our concern and cooperate. Following are the guidelines.

1.  ANU one day/ overnight trek fees should be paid latest before 4 days from the trek start date (as mentioned in the whatApp message) to confirm the participation (Team GGIM will intimate over the whatsApp group about upcoming activities).  For Sinhagad Adventure Course, Diwali Multi Days Treks, and Himalaya Adventure Course, fees should be paid before the deadlines mentioned in the respective WhatsApp groups. ( This will help us to finalize the list and make travel arrangements, no. of instructors, food & accommodation (wherever needed) smoothly.)

2.  In case of any cancellation, kindly intimate us immediately by sending us an email on ggimpune@gmail.com, mentioning the reasons for cancellation. (Kindly dont send any cancellation over whatsapp group. You can also discuss with us over the phone but please ensure email communication to confirm the cancellation).

If you do not intimate as per section 2., we will not carry forward the fees. For Sinhagad Course/ Multi Days treks, if the cancellation is made before 7 days of the programme, we will carry forward the fees. If the cancellation is made within the 6 days of the programme, depending upon the then advance arrangements made, we will deduct the amount.
