    I’m 87 yr old. On 30.03.1976 a plot from Central Govt Employee’s Co-Op Housing Society,Madhya Pradesh was purchased. There is a piece of land approx 3000 sq ft adjacent to my plot.Width of the plot is 45’6″ & out of this 28′ is covered by open well on front side. The said society offered me this plot & I purchased this. The society allotted me this piece of land on 07.06.2006. Payment is done thru cheques & society issued receipts against every payment. Society only issued a letter regarding the ownership of plot, with a remark for restricting any civil work on the plot. Many a time verbally society is asked for registry but all in vain.I wish to get registry.Which court this case is to be lodged for fast decision – Cooperative or Consumer Forum court ? Pl advise.
