On many instances, all residents have requested them to hold general meeting, have raised voice against them to stop illegal collection, conduct proper election and form RWA properly but there are so much engrossed in their arrogance & personal vested interest that they are not ready to hear residents and continued with their illegal business by involving/ taking support of local JEN/ Police wallas in the name of RWA, moreover these officials are not taking cognizance of their illegal formation and activities.
There were instances when people raised voice against them, try to schedule AGM to escalate matter but these bunch of arrogant peoples ended up by beating the resident who has raised voice against them and cancelling of AGM, as a proof a police case were registered, one guard who told the truth where thrown away, this has prompted resident to live in fearful environment.

The Advocteji advised the Complainants as follow:
We have received your email today and we wish in providing immediate relief. We advise as follows:
- Forming a Society / RWA Or becoming member of one or more Societies, for any legal purpose is fundamental right of every citizen of India and therefore cannot be stopped legally.
- Intimidating, coercing and dominating to extract money is an offence and may be taken up with Police / Courts.
- 1st RWA, if registered with DDA / MCD will always have an edge over any RWA registered later on.
- If any RWA is doing illegal work or it is not functioning according to law, the members are advised to hold mediation, conciliation, arbitration among the members for amicable settlement of issues and if all of these fail then you may knock the doors of the Courts for providing you justice.
