The Managing Committee is bound to repair and maintain the property of the society (all the members) immediately. The Delhi Cooperative Society rules, 2007 are very clear on this aspect of responsibility of the managing committee.


The Managing Committee is bound to inspect entire common areas regularly U/Rule 106(5)(b) of the DCS Rules, 2007. The committee and its officers shall carry out regular inspection of the items mentioned in clause (a) and shall take immediate action for their repair and maintenance.

 ACTUAL MEANING OF FLAT IN THIS CONTEXT: The flat will mean outside walls & roof of the flat. Innerside of all the walls ceiling and floor is the responsibility of the allottee of the flat. Secondly, precincts thereof are also a part of the flat as these are calculated in the super area of the flat. These areas are like corridor, lift area, stair cases, space for common transformer, common generators, common office & guard / security hut / room of the society. Besides this the Society may have a conference hall, entertainment hall, a gym, a covered parking area also. The Managing Committee of the Society is required to make regular visits of all these areas for their inspection to find whether any of the area require any repairs.

His relative has a flat in the Society who paid all cost sna dues till possession and little later. But it is understood that some dispute arose between them and since then no demand of the Society is met by any of them. Kindly suggewst what the committee should dio.

    Due to the seepage of the flat from the roof of top floor, the short circuit had taken place and a fire took place on the 8th floor i.e. top floor in our house. Who is responsible, the society or the owner of flat?
