Tenant Association in co-operative group housing societies

IMG-20130828-00347

There are 20% to 30% tenants in co-operative group housing societies in Delhi NCR alone. Other Residents Welfare Association of DDA housing colonies and builder flats in many other localities also have 15% to 25% tenants in their localities.

While members of the co-operative group housing societies have all the rights to participate in the management of the co-operative group housing societies, the tenants have no right to participate in the meetings of the CGHS and they can not vote for any matter in the meetings. The Delhi co-operative Societies Act, 2003 and the Delhi Co-operative Societies Rules, 2007, do not provide any relief to the Tenants.

Besides the above the laws in Delhi empowers the co-operative societies to impose more maintenance charges on the Tenants than the members of the co-operative societies. There are few grievances of tenants which even the government has ignored while making the laws and the rules for tenants.

Do the tenants have too much affordability to pay extra ?      All say – NO

Do the tenants have given their own houses on rent to others and are coming to stay in Delhi at much lower rent ?        All say – NO

Do the tenant make more use of common space and common facilities of the co-operative group housing societies, than the members ?  All say – NO

IF ABOVE IS NOT SO, THEN WHY TENANTS IN DELHI NCR ARE FORCED BY THE GOVT TO PAY MORE THAN THE LANDLORDS ?

Do the Govt want that the Tenant are not required to save money to have their own house in future ?

In fact, we have not yet been able to find any reasons for this law. We hope if tenants living in co-operative societies could tell us or some one else in Govt could tell us.

There are many tenants who are approaching us against this law and also the dis-crimination in services provided to them by the managements of some of the co-operative societies.

Since it is our moral and legal duty to resolve the disputes by mediation, conciliation and arbitration, we have been able to resolve the disputes. But much can be done by approaching our CONSUMER PROTECTION CELL.

We are writing to the Delhi Govt to remove this clause of charging more from the tenants from the rules of Delhi Co-operative Societies Rules, 2007 itself.

    i live in CGHS called Akaash Ganga Apartment in sector 6 plot 17 Dwarka, New Delhi. the discrimanaiton of tenants versus members in this society is too high. members are allowed to have and park more than one car in the society but tenants are not. members are allowed to pet an animal but tenants are not and the members also passes lewd comments to parents and even to the children saying these rent people, some children are not allowed to play with tenants children, anything goes wrong children of tenant to be blamed for, pets of tenants are not allowed to take their pets in lifts.

    i want to do something about this dicrimanation as this is against my freedom and rights to live in my own country
