The adverse impact of the pandemic has been most on CINTAA members under the lowest economic rung in their fraternity. The senior members are affected most as they are more prone to health issues and very little or no work. The Zonal structure of CINTAA helped these members get through the pandemic.
To laud the untiring efforts of the Zonal Team members during the times of the pandemic, a commendation ceremony was held at the office of CINTAA on 26th January 2022.
CINTAA awarded citation certificates to their Corona Warriors who did work to lend support and assistance to other members in distress, distributed Food Rations & Medicines to other members who endured much turmoil during COVID times.
Fifty-eight warriors were awarded. The zonal team members shared stories of their struggles and how CINTAA, through each of its members, helped them through it.

For the uninitiated, the zonal structure of CINTAA comprises its own members who form a team, dividing duties amongst themselves as per the geographical locations of Greater Mumbai and its extended suburbs stretching upto Virar and Panvel.
Mr. Ghanshyam Srivastva is the Chief Convenor of the Zonal structure.
An endeavour of the outreach committee, the sole purpose is to form a united platform whereby members of CINTAA get connected with other members of CINTAA who happen to dwell in close proximity to each other.
The structures help members stay connected with each other. Senior members are visited regularly to keep a tab on their well-being. Certain members also visit members in need regularly and ensure that they are just a call away.
