Members of CGHS must enjoy common areas



The rights of the members of CGHS are protected by rule 106(11) are as below:-

Members of CGHS must enjoy common areas: No member or occupant shall carry out any work which would be prejudicial to the soundness or safety of the property or reduce the value thereof or impair any easement or shall add any material structure or excavate any additional basement or cellar without obtaining the consent of committee


Members of CGHS must enjoy common areas: IF a member has encroached, the member must take it that, it has been encroached by verbal consent of managing committee and therefore, must take necessary action else his rights to easement shall be impaired for ever.

Members of CGHS must enjoy common areas: It is practically seen that instead of allowing members to use the entire common areas, the managing committee takes the view that the common area belong to them alone. There after the managing committee forms a view that if any member want to make use of the common area they have to pay a price to the managing committee. Over and above that, some times the management of the Society goes to such an extent that they make the plans to commercially use the common areas to generate income from Car Parking, making temporary shops and ever erecting permanent shops, making a gym, making a recreation centre or a library etc.

In case of any hardship faced by any one, leave a reply below

    Many members of the society have built small gates in front of their flats in the common space, due to which, common space accessible to common members has reduced to great proportion.

    I have gone through your this article and not able to convince the managing committee. Kindly help us, we are ready to pay your fees too.

    I am living as a tanent in a haryana employees welfare Organisation (CGHS) fro last 7 years. Last year’s management decided to place dhobi for ironing of cloths in the common passge for two months each turn by turn. There are more than 20 such places in the society. My turn came in Dec 2012. After three months, they are not shifting the dhobi from common passage to other location. Even we are getting threat calls for this objection. Pl. guide how can I get rid of this problem. As per Apartment ownership Act Haryana 1983, no body can use common passage like this.

  • Sir,
    I had made a complaint to our Society on 24th September 2018, I have not received any reply so far. My complaint is as follows:-
    1. They have removed the board showing the names of Flat owners after the painting of the building.
    2. They have sealed the gates of emergency exit (Two gates) in the lobby.
    3. We have six security guards, three in each shift. Two security guards are physical disabled, one in each shift.
    Our Society consists of two buildings each building has 28 members.
    Could you please advice.

    Dear Sir ,
    Dear Sir ,
    My society has submitted Audited Account for the year ending 31/03/2018 along with Notice of AGM , I have found that Managing Committee has spent entire or Most of the fund of the Sinking Fund for Deemed Conveyance and obtain Property Card matter , They have also collected huge amount for such work , but I have found that they are misappropriated fund of the society .
    They have not even showing the Bank Statement , bills and other quotation for said work of Deemed Conveyance and Obtain Property Card . I have doubts that Managing Committee has done cheating with members of the society and even Auditor is hand in glow with Managing Committee ,
    I do not have support of 1/5 members and fraud is over 25 Lakhs , what can I do. ? Auditors have send us approx. 4 time audited Balance Sheet and Income and Expenditure account but all are manipulated to just misguide members of the society , because of almost over 98 % members of the society are not understand accounts. In AGM account was not passed because of Audtors Report and General Remark is not submitted . Now next meeting is scheduled on 5th Nov, 2018.
    Please guide me what to do and send your reply by next post . If possible .

    Respected sir,
    Our apartment complex does not have declaration. As per our apartment act this is punishable offence. But other flat owners are rejecting to do this. Our association is not registered. Can we file case against them to come forward and register deed of declaration.

    Hello Sir,

    I am a resident of a cooperative housing society limited which has undergone redevelopment. I have been following up for transparency prior to start of redevelopment but till date not even a single document has been received by me related to transparency. Now the redevelopment is complete and it seems that the builder has not kept the terms as mentioned in the redevelopment agreement and have worked in coordination with the management of the building by giving benefits and extraordinary perks to them thereby leaving the society at his mercy. Please if you could let me know how I can get all the details towards transparency of redevelopment.

    Thanks and Regards

    I stay in a housing complex having 11 residential buildings, Few commercial shops, School built in amenity space. The DDR while granting the deemed conveyance held the point valid of a builder and noted that the Open space in one wing (with eight buildings) will belong to that wing, open space in another wing (3 buildings) will belong to those three buildings, open space near Amenity space will belong to Amentiy building (school). The DDR also approved the sale of Amenity space with adjoining open space and green belt (the builder himself bought it), and a bunglow built in the same layout sold to someone with green belt around it. The DDR did not object on usage of parking spaces (over 100 of them) in both the wings (gated areas) by the school for parking vehicles of staff and parents!
    The federation has filed Civil writ petition in HC against the DDR order which is not come on board for last four years.
    When the federation CHS objected the parking of school staff, the school authority filed civil case in local court in this month and got orders passed in their favour (asking the federation not to stop them parking their vehicles). The school stated that the builder has leased out the school building and the adjoining land for 33 years and have alloted them these parkings.
    isnt it interesting?
    What the federation should do?
