Comment on Maintenance charges in co-operative housing societies by CMA CS Dr R soundararajan.
In Karnataka , our society is managed by elected members. We have 2 BHK and 3 BHK. The expenses incurred are classified under different heads such as facility[ garbage collection, gardening, Pest control in common area, Security, etc], Utility exp [ Electricity for common area, fuel for generator back up, water tanker etc], AMC for lift, DG set, Office Expenditure, Staff welfare etc They can not be related to Square foot or area of Flat.
inspite of all this and against the court decision of Bombay high court the society charges on Sqft as the builder was charging before handing over. Is it not illegal, unfair and unethical? Can we go by majority?
