Different number of floors in different towers of Society
THE CGHS LAND IN DELHI: Land is scarce in the metropolitan cities and New Delhi is one such city where the land is limited and controlled by DDA and MCD for varying projects specially being developed for the co-operative societies.
DIFFERENT TYPES OF SOCIETIES: There are 2 different types of societies in Delhi. One is co-operative group housing society and the other is co-operative maintenance society. In the CGHS, the land is developed and allotted by DDA to duly registered CGHS. The management of CGHS gives contract of building number of different flats to the members of the society. The decisions about all activities of building the flats and there after doing maintenance is the responsibility of duly elected Managing Committee of the co-operative group housing society.
MEMBERS DECIDE NUMBER OF FLATS AND NUMBER OF FLOORS: These are basically the members of the society who decide on the basis of recommendation of the Architect engaged by the co-operative group housing society, to build number of flats of and number of floors in each tower.
THE OWNER OF TOTAL GROUND OF THE CGHS: The fact is that, the plot of land allotted to the co-operative group housing society to all the members. So basically all the members of the co-operative group housing society are jointly members and owners of the total ground of the society.
COST OF FLAT IS DIFFERENT IN EACH TOWER BASED ON NUMBER OF FLOORS: Generally each of the tower contain different size of flat and different category of flat e.g. HIG, MIG and LIG etc. The cost is calculated by the Architect based on the area of flat along with common areas as a compulsory part of each flat.
COMMON AREAS: The peripheral roads, divider roads, common office of society, guard room, generator room or space, electricity distribution panel room, lift spaces and its construction. The architect divides the cost of each of these to various flats.
TOTAL COST OF EACH FLAT IN EACH TOWER: It is the General meeting of all the members of the co-operative group housing society, which approves the cost of each flat in each tower, after the recommendation of the Architect is accepted by the Managing Committee and Consultant (if engaged by the co-operative group housing society).
FLATS BUILT BY BUILDER AND NOT BY CGHS: In other types of society where number of flats and number of towers is decided by the members of the co-operative group housing society, entire functions are left on the discretion of the builder. The main difference is that, the land owner is builder and not the members of the co-operative group housing society. The cost of each flat and number of members is also decided by the builder and not the co-operative group housing society.
MAINTENANCE OF CGHS FLATS: The maintenance of co-operative group housing society flats is done by the Managing Committee of the co-operative group housing society.
MAINTENANCE OF BUILDER FLATS: The maintenance of builder flats is done by the builder. However, he has a option to hand over the maintenance to RWA or CHS formed by the members of the entire project or by different towers or by different facilities.
