Managing Committee is not arm of RCS but Administrator is

The typical name of the management is “Committee” of the Society as per DCS Act / Rules. To make the term more simple we can say Managing Committee of the Society. The members of Managing Committee are not custodian of the Society.

The committee is servant of the society – because these members out of total members have volunteered to serve the members by managing the affairs of maintenance of the Society. The Managing Committee can not order the members for anything they like to do, But they have to do what ever is decided by the members in their Annual General Meeting (AGM). The AGM makes a policy, which the managing committee is required to implement. The committee is not to make any changes in the policy without prior approval of the AGM.

Managing Committee is not arm of RCS: If the managing committee do not take approval of the AGM and makes a rule themselves and also implements it, all the members of the managing committee are personally responsible and liable for any risk in implementing such a policy.

The managing committee CAN NOT be an arm of the RCS. Both are totally different. RCS is a Govt body but the managing committee is political body of the members of the society. The RCS officials get handsome salary from Govt but the committee members are not paid by Govt. They are also not paid by the co-operative society. The committee members are required to work without honorarium. The committee can keep employees for the society and not for the committee.

In some of the Societies the members claim that the employees are working as employees to the members of committee and not the society. In such a situation the members should make the members of the committee aware of the DCS Rules and the guidelines given in this web-site and still if they do not mend their ways, you may always leave your comments below.

Please all note that, the Administrator is appointed by the Registrar of Co-operative Societies, therefore, the Administrator is an arm of the RCS but the managing committee is not an arm of RCS. You may check transparency through a web site of the society where an Administrator is appointed. Click here.

    The Society says that I should deposit the cheque to the Society and before the amount is debited into the account gives the receipt without obtaining the clearance from the Bank and in case of any non clearance they charge the member an interest of 21 % for delay after the Bank certify the payment not done. and direct the members cannot make internal transfers which is now a days common practice of making all transaction through internal direct banking system. .My Society has not given me the receipt of payment (monthly maintenance) from last 9 months ,the day I started making internal transfer through Bank (same Bank I and Society have account). There is no resolution passed that I cannot pay through internal banking system. And a clear cut directives from RBI that anyone can make direct transfer through any bank by making cash payment in that account, Pl advise

    M/S/ DS TRUSTS

    THANKS FOR THE ADVISE.

    WHILE INFORMING THEM ABOUT THE INCIDENCE IN WRITING ONLY I HAVE WRITTEN TO THE SOCIETY THAT YOU RESOLVE THE ISSUE AND GET ME MY COST OF DAMAGES OTHERWISE I WILL HAVE NO CHOICE THAN TO ADJUST IN THE PAYMENTS DUE TO SOCIETY. SINCE I AM VERY PARTICULAR AND REGULAR IN MY PAYMENT OF DUES , THE ONLY AMOUNT WHERE I CAN ADJUST WAS CONTRIBUTION TOWARDS TERRACE COVERING EXPENSE. I owe Rs 10796 TO SOCIETY AND MY DAMAGES ARE TO HE EXTENT OF Rs.5947. I HAVE GIVEN THE CHECK FOR THE BALANCE AMOUNT.INITIALLY THEY WERE SAYING THAT WE WILL NOT ACCEPT THE PART PAYMENT. BUT THEN THEY HAVE KEPT THE CHEQUE WITH THEM.

    PL CLARIFY THIS IS IN ORDER

    I am not able to refer to rules of Delhi Cooperative Group Housing Society with regard to contesting elections and holding position if elected by an added member (either wife-husband or father-son combination) if requisite documents authorising the added member to contest and hold position in MC is given by the first member in the combination to the added or vice-versa. Kindly clarify. Thanks.

    Thanks for your reply re: DCGHS election participation by the added member of the society. Would you be kind enough to inform what documents would be required to be furnished to the management committee to accord their approval. Is it a time consuming process and if some precedents are already there which could be mentioned so as to expedite the process of grant of approval. Thanks in anticipation for your clarification on the subject please. Upendra Saluja.
