Based on this review I would like to approve West Bengal Wikimedians User Group’s application and grant them user group status for one year. If there are no concerns or objections, I will move forward with this action Tuesday, February 7, 2017, after a 72 hour window for AffCom members to raise potential concerns or objections.
It is the opinion of the Affiliations Committee that the group meets the requirements for Wikimedia User Group status.
Therefore be it resolved that West Bengal Wikimedians User Group is recognized as a Wikimedia User Group for a one-year, renewable period, effective on February 16, 2017.
