Learned counsel for the Petitioner contends that Mr. LS Chadha is not a creditor or a member of the committee or a member of the cooperative society and is therefore not competent to invoke section 61 of the Delhi Cooperative Societies Act, 2003. He further draws our attention to the fact that a complaint has been lodged against Mr. LS Chadha, stating that he has illegally and forcibly taken possession of Flat No.B-603, Lovely Home Cooperative Group Housing, Plot-5,Sector-5, Dwarka, New Delhi. The office of the Registrar, Cooperative Societies did not issue any notice to the petitioner and instead directly appointed Mr. PC Jain, as the Inspection Officer. Objections have been taken before the Inspection Officer but without answering them he has required the petitioner to file its reply on merits.
Prima facie Section may not be available in the circumstances of the case.
Issue notice: Ms Rachna Gautam, Advocate accepts notice on behalf of Respondent No.1
