    I am member of a housing society at CBD Belapur , Navi Mumbai. The secretary in his election notification dated 16 th March 2013 declared that those defaulters of maintenance charges as on 31st Dec 2012 are not eligible to vote in the election of the office bearers of the society and MC members which will be held in the month of May. As on today,I am not a defaulter but as on 31st Dec 2012, yes. Pls clarify whether the secretary’s stand is correct or not. Can any member be denied of his right to vote without any proper advance notice?

    Hello Sir,
    Is there any provision where in Society can mutually deiced to have e voting rather then manual voting. Most of the member of the society doesn’t stay in the society for various reason, is there any provision wherein the Society can deiced to conduct e voting for the Members Election scheduled for next Annual General Meeting and all members can vote through email or online.

    Hello Sir,

    Our society has members between 301 to 500 so we the strength of our MC needs to be 17 inclusive of general, women & SC/ST/OBC/VJ. I would like to know :

    1] If we dont have any SC/ST/OBC/VJ members do those reserved seats get scrapped or do they transfer to the general category?
    2] If a member votes less than the required votes is that vote null & void. eg. instead of ticking
    12 members in the general category only 9 are ticked is that vote null & void or counted.

    Our society has elected managing committee. In that committee 3 members are serving government employees.
    One member working in airport authority of India
    Another member is working co-operative department of state government of maharashtra
    and third one in defence ammunition factory.
    The query here is whether these serving government employee are eligible to contest election of CHS and hold a position in managing committee.


  17. santosh mayekar says:

    I am second holder owner .i am eligible to contest election of CHS and hold a position in managing committee.

  18. Dear Sir,

    As our secretary has resign from his post, and he told us that new procedure of election is more tough. as he tell us that there will be deposit of 17000 for whosoever wants to stand in the election and the committee will come from Pune Maharashtra and also mention that Palghar district has different rules, as previous Vasai was in the thane now it is in the Palghar district so rules are change.

    As all the member of society want to elect one person and don’t want this long procedure, is there any way that all member decide to elect one man for their secretary post without going the way which he told.

  19. Swami says:

    We had Management Committee elections 2 months back. One seat reserved for “OBC” is vacant.
    What is procedure/rule to fill in this post if an eligible society member want to contest/nominate against this seat?

    Thank You.
