Tenant in Co-operative Group Housing society is Consumer
The tenant in a co-operative group housing society is consumer of the occupancy of flat & availing of services provided by the co-operative group housing society.
The Tenant is having most of the rights of the member of the Society in enjoyment of flat and facilities attached to it for which the member of the flat has paid the money to the co-operative group housing society.
Due to aforesaid reasons, residents meetings are held by most of the co-operative group housing societies, so that the Tenants can attend such meetings on behalf of the allottee of the flat in which they are residing.
Is Tenant a Consumer
Yes, the Tenant is a consumer under the Consumer Protection Act and he can file a case for deficiencies in services by the managing committee of the Society towards the flat taken on rent.
Can the Tenant approach Registrar of Co-operative Societies
No. The Tenant has no right under the co-operative laws against the Allottee of the Flat or the Co-operative group housing society. Therefore, approaching RCS for any complaint will be futile.
Is there any one who can guide the Tenants for their rights
Yes. The Disputes Settlement Trust, the owners of this web site is a NGO, which gives free guidance to the public for their queries on this web site. Besides this, the public can ask for their paid services to ensure that the Tenants or any person resident of India do not face any harassment due to lack of knowledge of rights and liabilities of a Tenant in such a co-operative Society or a flat of DDA.
