Here are the orders of the Registrar of Co-operative Societies and also the orders of Delhi co-operative Tribunal

In another judgment of High Court of Delhi, the court held that the Registrar of co-operative societies is a “Public Authority” and hence duty bound to comply with the provisions of RTI Act and is required to provide information as provided for under Section 2(f) of the Right to Information Act, 2005, subject only to the limitations enumerated under Section 8 of the RTI Act.

Whereas, the DCS Act, 2003 provides the right to information in its section 139 and the DCS Rules provide the right to information in its Rule 165 of the DCS Rules, 2007. Therefore, all the members of society are having right to information from the societies on any records of the society.

The right to information act, 2005 is having indirect effects on section 139 of the DCS Act, 2003 and Rule 165 of the DCS Rules, 2007, wherein, it is essential for every co-operative society to keep their all the essential records either open to the members or put such record on their web-sites.

The Delhi Co-operative Tribunal made an observation in a appeal before them that before parting with the order we would like to mention that because of absence of transparency in the day to day work of the societies by its managing committee, the litigation is on the increase. Members of the societies are not aware of the proceedings conducted by their managing committee. This is high time for all the societies to have their own websites. We feel that if the proceedings or the notices to the members are uploaded on the websites, the litigation would decrease.
