The centre, which will attend to calls on issues like education, loans and welfare, will be based at its headquarters in Menara Manickavasagam.

MIC president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu said information on organisations like the Maju Institute of Education Development (MiED) and Yayasan Strategik Sosial (YSS) could be obtained through the website.

“We will update the website with information on discussions that the MIC had with the government, what did the minister representing the Indian community say… everything will be up on the website,” he said at the MIC’s newly-renovated office on the 6th floor of Menara Manickavasagam yesterday.

Samy Vellu said he had ordered all branch chairmen to recruit at least 50 youth as members within three months.

He said the youth and women movement would be separated and a branch could be formed with just 50 youth or women.
