Registrar can order inspection of Society on complaint of 1 member

Under the law, if a serious complaint is made by a member or a public servant in writing about the affairs of a co-operative society  or its managing committee or office bearers to the Registrar or to any person authorised by him in this regard……….. he may order an inspection in respect of only issues or issues as the case may be , raised in the complaint and the inspection shall be conducted by a person not below the rank of Assistant Registrar.

Copy of the inspection shall be communicated to the co-operative society within a period of ninety days (90 days) from the date of completion of such inspection.

2 a society legal-path.com

Some times it happens that the management of the Society are functioning arbitrarily and without following the Bye Laws of the Society. In such a case, if one or two members complain for wrong doings of the society to the Registrar, the Registrar may or may not take action. The registrar do not move as all the Govt departments claim that they are short of staff and their work has increased many fold. So RCS is also a Govt department, they also say the same. The result is that many illegal activities of the management of the Society go un-detected by all. At the time of audit, the auditor also do not take any care of catching the management for not following the laid down procedures. In fact the auditor helps the management to get rid of the shortcomings by preparing the records at back date and avoid any of his remarks. No remark No problem.

We have practically experienced that even if 1 member of the Society makes a solid complaint to the Registrar with copy of proof of wrong doings, the Registrar can and will order inspection of the Society records and if any one of the member of the managing committee are found guilty, the Registrar gives punishment as per law. There after no one dares to commit such wrong doing in the Society.

Therefore, where ever the members are conscious of their rights, they pin point the mistakes of the managing committee, they do not hesitate to complain to the Registrar and if the Registrar do not take appropriate action, they lodge a case against the management in court of the Registrar, the Registrar becomes bound by law to summon the society management to the court of the Registrar and reply to the allegations. There after, if the allegations are found correct, the registrar gives chance to mutually settle the complaint between the society management and the complainant. If it is not settled, the guilty gets the punishment as per laws.

    A very informative article. Thank you. I am in a ditto/similar situation as above, where I have approached registrar of societies with a serious issue, and the officer acknowledged verbally the problem but said he will accept the grievance letter only if I come to with a 1/3rd votes/agreement, where I possibly cannot get such a support as the problem affects only me and couple of my neighbours(this is about commercial activity running in my neighbouring flat). Looks like I need to pay for him to act which I am not alright with. Can you advise, besides going to court if any other approach like reaching the higher ups would help? Thanks, SL, Bangalore

    Major repairs of the bldg is being carried out on the 30 years old buildings without the mandatory structural audit report, no calling of tenders and contract for repairs given to contractors having no reputation and without any guarantees for the work. We have raised objection to the repairs being conducted without following proper procedures, and so we have not been contributing to the repair fund. Now they have passed a resolution in the AGM to levy 21% PENALTY on the monthly maintenance bill. My query is : Is the committee legally correct to carry out repairs without following the mandatory procedures. Can they levy this major repairs fund contribution in the monthly maintenance bill and charge us interest at 21%. ?? We have written to the Registrar, but as usual there is no response from their end.

    When we have Possession of Covered Reserved Parking, Drafted Sale deed given by builder in that also Parking Allotment is done by builder but due to prejudice of society body members towards me with the majority of body members they gave decision that “We are not eligible for covered reserved parking”.
    Can you please advice us can we get covered reserved parking on the base of possession letter and draft conveyance deed provided by builder.

    Kindly help me in getting the share certificate on my name. I have bought a house. Committee is forcing us to pay the welfare fund of Rs 1 lakh and indirectly we are told that if we do not pay this amount, we will not be able to get the share certificate on my name as the committee will not support us. Even if we will provide all the documents they will keep on asking for other documents until we pay the welfare fund. In their pamphlet form no 20,21 id proof, dd/cheque of 610 rs etc is written to get the share certificate but not this welfare fund.

    Dear Sir,

    I have a flat in Pune and we are really facing issues with our committee which was formed 2 years back. We have tried to get a solutions but they have imposed so many restrictions which are not acceptable by most of the people staying out of society. In our society, out of 84 flats, 70 % is rented out and most of them don’t come for meetings . Society has imposed below restrictions and they are not ready to negotiate for the same.

    1. Payment to be done only via depositing the cheque at Society office. No Neft/ Rtgs/ Cash allowed to be deposited. If cheque dont come they impose fine of Rs 500/-.

    2. No bachelors are allowed in society. when we object they informed that this decision are taken in AGM which is not true as i was present in the AGM. They have issued notices on Society letter head to all the owners to remove bachelors from the society 6 months before AGM.

    3. They are charging 20 % maintenance extra from rented flat owners stating that this was agreed in AGM and cannot be changed. Whereas as per the Society act maximum can be charges is 10%.

    4. Earlier we have a Gmail Group and Wats app Group of all society members, they have removed everyone from them stating that rented flat owners are demoralizing them and creating hindrance for the society. They are not ready to accept any emails from us and doing as per there intensions.

    I would request to guide me properly how we should go ahead as and are we allowed to oppose above points or they are correct in what they are doing.

There are no monthly meetings conducted and they target those residents who do not support them.the recent issue is that the chairman for no reason and without any verbal or written information has asked the lady who cleans garbage not to clear our bin. This was told to us when we confronted the lady. We are not confronting the chairman as he did not inform us. Moreover my parents are senior citizens and I am a working lady and do not want a spat with that indecent man. We are too stressed as the garbage is all over the place on our floor.

Without the new bye laws they have incurred heavy renovation work and all the work was done without any General Body meeting, all the decisions are being taken behind closed doors and heavy renovation is work appears to be only being incurred to make some personal profits.

    The managing committee is trying to do dictator style ruling in the society.They do not follow the by-laws and arrogantly behave with those who questions about their wrong doing. They are spending society fund without GB approval. Since, the revision in monthly maintenance charge was not passed in the last AGM, I am not giving the revised charge but is paying as per old rate. They have even got passed a resolution that I should not write any letters to them and even if I sent, the same will be ignored. Complaints were lodged to Dy. Registrar and Commissioner & Registrar along with documentary evidences from Oct. 2015 onwards but of no use.

    Further, recently my cycle was stolen from the society though there were security guards but the MC is washing off their hands as they are claiming that after handing over the camera footage, their duty is over. Kindly let me know whose responsibility is to get me the compensation.

    Pls provide your guidance on the above.

    I live in a high rise tower of 13 floor building in Mumbai. We have 2 elevators, but due to our society committee negligence both lift are not working properly. There many old people residing in society. And they have problems to climb up and down stair for daily chores. Many complaints have been put to the society office. The committee had taken money from all flats to repair and make new elevator. But made only one. Where the new elevator had fallen to mishap many a times as gear not working or break out of order. Old elevator is out of order as part of the machine are not available.
    Need help to file a complaint against the society committee as many issues with elevator problem and structural audit as many Crack in pillars and beam.

M.C. strength is 4 from our side 2 from opposition side. but it is more than 2 month now office bearer are not yet resigned and handed over the charge.they called themselves as care taker of the society. 1 member from opposition side says she want resign/or not to attend any m.c. meeting. now my question is whether we 5 members can run the society for time being because dy. registrar says it will take time to fill vacant post through election.

    Dear Sir,

    We have received an notice from registrar on the basis of a compliant made by our ex chairman.The compliant states that “the ex chairman of the managing committee alleges that we have not shown the annual accounts of the society to him and proper disclosure is not made to him for the last 3 years”.

    In this regard, please note during the last 3 years, the ex chairman himself was the chairman of the committee and not a single AGM or Audit was conducted. After forming a new managing committee this year we have rectified the past errors by file filing the pending audit report and conducting an AGM

    What I don’t understand is how can the registrar issue a notice without verifying the facts of the matter. What are option available to us to show that all this irregularities happened when he was the chairman of the committee itself.

    One more question : If we don’t conduct agm or file audit report for the 3 years, do the managing committee will automatically get dissolved. ?

    I request you to please suggest me some remedies.

    Dear Sir,

    Some people in the society are parking their vehicles right in front of the gate. There is absolutely no place for two people to walk out together. The other thing is in case of emergency no ambulance or rickshaw or firetruck or any other such vehicle can be parked in front of the Gate. Please do advice us what steps should we take to clear this. Letters to the secretary and discussions had been held with no outcome.

    In our society we have installed intercom system by contribution, & 2 watchmen on duty during day. but whenever outsider come to any flat security has to inform him/her and then only allow the person to visit the flat. but, now a days no body inform the members and sometime any unknown person / currier or any unwanted person rings the bell. It is very risky during noon/afternoon for a any lone senior person. matter was brought to the notice of society management, but they do not bother to take action against watchmen.

    Hi, I am Dimple. In my society the registrar purposely elected 3-4 members who were defaulters. As per bye law, a defaulter has no rights to participate in th election. Some defaulters didnot participated in the election bounding the laws. But they roused their voice to the registrar as none of the defaulter should be elected, inspite of yelling the registrar proceeded with the elections n now those 3-4 defaulters have become the chairman, secretary n part of committee. Old committee have not handed over any documents to the new committee cause old committee have complained the registrar for the injustice happened. Also new committee have started making bank transactions without old chairman n secretary signatures. The registrar is supporting the defaulters as he have taken money from them so what action can the old committee take to remove the defaulters? Plz help

    Respected Sir,

    For every festival giving away the amount fixed by the committee members is very difficult for me. My total income is Rs.13,000/- pm. I have many responsibilities and plus EMI of Rs.5000/-. It’s very difficult to donate every now and then. Sir, I want to know is that is it necessary or compulsory to give the amount fixed by the committee members for any certain festival? Can I give what amount I feel to donate ? Please guide me in this matter, it will be highly appreciated and obliged.

    Thanking you
    Yours truly,
    Sheeba
