    hi, i would like to know that can a resolution be passed in a co-operative housing society by raising of hands. We saw a stunt played by some of commitee members that they passed maintenance charges of rs.2 per sq.ft on all with some of committe members n their known ones raising hand..

    There was no signature taken on the maintenance resolution by any of the owners of the flat. Now when we revolted they said they have recording of people raising hands for 2rs.sq ft mainteance. Can we society owners challenge this.

    second question is that.. the commitee members decided to close club house n start their society office their,, without any consent or writen request to any one. they are taking vague decisions on their own..

    when we revolt they turn off the elevator power off to harass us and say they are saving power for the society.

    2days back around 100 society members gathered and asked to stop all this nonsense and the committee resigned with chairman..

    n they challenged us that they wont allow us to form new committee. what to do
