There are 543 functioning CSUs (drop of 45 when compared to 6 months back). These functioning CSUs have 12,837 Normal Member families (drop of 2,244 when compared to 6 months back) and 2,662 Suspended Members who have declared their annual incomes but not yet paid Sangha Tax as on 31 March 2001.

It is significant that the percentage of women memberships has risen from 28% to 30% in spite of the temporary fall in active membership. This suggests that Coolie women accept the idea of Sangha Tax and self finance more readily than men.
