  1. FAQ ON PARKING:

    1) QUESTION: CAN A MEMBER HOLD PARKING SPACE / STILT IF HE HAS PURCHASED THE SAME?

    ANSWER: Builder has to provide a mandatory parking space to a certain number of flats dependant on the size of every flat as per the provisions of the Development Control Regulations. Parking space is not counted in F.S.I calculation and is the property of the society. Hence, by the same reason and also as IN THE HIGH COURT OF JUDICATURE AT BOMBAY APPELLATE JURISDICTION FIRST APPEAL NO. 2182 OF 2007, Nahalchand Laloochand Pvt. Ltd .Appellant Vs. Panchali Co-Operative Housing Society Limited., versus Panchali Co-Operative Housing Society Limited, the Builder is NOT entitled to sell you Parking Space outside the FSI consumed which was further confirmed IN THE SUPREME COURT OF INDIA CIVIL APPELLATE JURISDICTION CIVIL APPEAL NO. 2544 OF 2010, Nahalchand Laloochand Pvt. Ltd. Apellant Vs. Panchali Co-operative Housing Society Ltd.

2) QUESTION: WHETHER THE ALLOTMENT OF PARKING SPACES / STILTS SHALL BE MADE BY THE COMMITTEE ON THE BASIS OF ‘ FIRST COME FIRST SERVEDOR UNSOLD AND AVAILABLE PARKING SPACE? 

ANSWER: Builder has no right to sell any car patking space. The reason is when a flat purchaser is purchasing a flat, he is paying certain amount for the common areas and amenities appurtenant to the primises.

The common parking area / stilts is the property of the said society as per the said High Court order and also as per the various provisions of DCR & MOFA Act. But, be advised that this common parking area does not include the parking space that is reserved for each flat as per the provisions of DCR. Hence, this common parking space is the property of the society and the society can allot it on ‘First Come First Serve” basis or in any other manner in accordance to decisions of all the members, within the frame work of the Model Bye-Laws & MCS Act, 1960.

3) QUESTION: WHO OWNS THE CHS PARKING SPACE?

ANSWER:

a) The CHS “Solely” owns the common spaces (Stilt, Open or whatever)

b) The members DO NOT own the common spaces (Stilt, Open or whatever)

c) Allotment of Parking space is a “Administrative function” and the MC as well as General Body are empowered to allot the parking space to its own Registered members

d) Registered members include family members and associate members

e) Tenant’s are Nominal Members and have no rights of a regular member, which includes having no rights of parking of parking in the CHS premises. However, at the discretion of the MC, parking can be an extended as humanitarian facility to the nominal members.

f) Parking area (Stilt, Open or whatever) is not covered under Floor Space Index (FSI) and hence is not saleable, as upheld by the Supreme Court in the case of Nahalchand vs. Panchali CHS.

g) The bye-law provision pertaining to Parking “RIGHTS” is a gross violation of the
various BMC & Fire act rules and has got no force of law, in Court of Law.

4) QUESTION: CAN THE MC REFUSE TO ALLOT PARKING SPACES TO ITS MEMBERS ?

ANSWER:

a) Parking space limitation (numbers) is decided by the Lay-Out-Plan (LOP) as sanctioned by the civic body (like BMC)

b) and under the Development Control rules (DC rules)

c) and under the Fire Act rules

d) The MC is bound not to violate the LOP & DC Rules & Fire Act rules, regarding the way common spaces are to be maintained.

5) QUESTION: WHAT IS THE TYPICAL PARKING CHARGES LEVIED BY CHS?

ANSWER:

a) Parking charges may be determined amongst the GB members, directing the MC to implement the GB directions.

b) Parking “charges”are not equivalent to Parking “penalty” for violations of Parking spaces & usages.

c) Parking charges may be from 10/- to 10,000/- or anything per vehicle, per month, BUT as decided by the GB, BUT this is again applicable “ONLY” to Registered members including his family members and associate members.

d) Nominal member is not a registered member. Hence parking charges do not apply to him. Hence Parking space can be denied to Nominal members, even if parking space is allotted to registered members including his family members and associate members, since Parking space is not a right granted to the registered members.

6) QUESTION: WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR MAINTANANCE OF PARKING SPACES?

ANSWER:
a) The MC is responsible for the upkeep & safety of the Parking spaces and for the safety of the members Parked vehicles rwsonable precautions may be taken by MC.

c) The member who parks his vehicle with the permission of the MC and pays Parking charges, can file Civil Cases, Criminal Cases and Consumer Court cases, against the CHS, for any “Negligence & Deficiency” in parking facility, vehicle damages etc….

d) The MC is liable to provide Common area lights, Security services to the CHS common areas, Sweeper charges to the parking area, path-way repair & maintenance etc…

7) QUESTION: CAN PARKING DEPOSIT BE COLLECTED?

ANSWER:

a) Parking space is a Common area and Deposit for Parking space cannot be collected, even if passed by the GB.

b) MCS RULE 39 restricts rights of society to raise funds.

c) Deposit means refundable, interest free, or whatever.

8) QUESTION: HOW TO ALLOT PARKING SPACES?

ANSWER:

a) Depending on the number of lawful Parking spaces (under BMC rules) and number of member vehicles, Parking space may be tentatively allotted on yearly Rotation usage system, which depends on cyclic First Apply First Allotment system.

b) More than one parking space may not be allotted to a member IF other members

parking requirements are not fulfilled.

  • 9) QUESTION: WHAT ABOUT PENALTY ON PARKING OFFENSES? (Open, Stilt or whatever):

    ANSWER:

    a) Penalty in a CHS is a “Fine” for violations of the CHS rules & conditions and Resolutions passed in the GB directing the MC to implement the GB directions applicable to them.

    b) Penalty amount may be fixed and decided by the GB and but levied to a member only after after giving opportunity to the member.

    c) However, by virtue of elections and the MCS Bye-Law no 136 of the old Bye-Laws and MCS Bye-Law no 138 of the new Model Bye Laws read as under “The members of the Committee shall be jointly and severally liable for making good any loss which the society may suffer on account of their negligence or omission to perform any of the duties and functions cast on them under the Act, Rules and Bye-laws of the Society.”

    d) In case of dispute of Penalty amount levied by the MC, the member may approach the local Ward Deputy Registrar / Assistant Registrar of Co-operative Housing Societies, for redressal of his grievances.

    As per New Model Bye Laws (as amended in 2009) Bye Law No.166: The general body meeting, after considering the say of the member and after giving him hearing, may levy penalty at the rate fixed by the meeting of the general body of the society but not more than Rs.1000.

    MOFA, is very clear on a part of parking space, stilt and open to sky. Builders do not have any right to sell these spaces, as per lot of judgments. In spite of Supreme Court judgment, some of the builders are known to sell such spaces for lakhs of rupee. If anybody wants to fight, our litigation system is so lengthy, and expansive. As per D.C. Rule builders have to keep 10% (increased to 25% in some areas) parking space in every building project, reserved for the visitors.


1) IN THE HIGH COURT OF JUDICATURE AT BOMBAY APPELLATE JURISDICTION FIRST APPEAL NO. 2182 OF 2007 Nahalchand Laloochand Pvt. Ltd .Appellant Vs. Panchali Co-Operative Housing Society Limited. ..Respondent

2) IN THE SUPREME COURT OF INDIA CIVIL APPELLATE JURISDICTION CIVIL APPEAL NO. 2544 OF 2010 Nahalchand Laloochand Pvt. Ltd. Apellant Vs. Panchali Co-operative Housing Society Ltd. Respondent

Note: The said High Court Order of Nahalchand Laloochand Pvt. Ltd versus Panchali Co-Operative Housing Society Limited was challenged in the Supreme Court of India and the Hon’ble Supreme Court also upheld the Judgment of the Bombay High Court i.e. “Builder cannot sell parking slots in the stilt area as independent flats or garage”

IF THE BUILDER HAS ALREADY SOLD PARKING SPACE:

Under Section 78 of MOF Act, The allotment of parking space/ stilts shall be made by the Managing Committee on the basis of ‘first come first served’ for unsold and available parking spaces. In a judgment by the Maharashtra State Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission authenticated the Cooperative Housing Societies that they can redistribute parking spaces sold and allotted by the Developer after adopting a suitable bye-law. The Commission ruled that the allotment of parking space is a matter that has be decided by the Housing Society. The Commission’s verdict was delivered on February 21, 2012 while deciding a complaint filed by Thane-based elderly couple. The complainants who had purchased a flat in one of the Housing Societies in Thane, had approached the Commission in May last year after they were physically restrained by employees of the Developer from parking their vehicle in a stilt parking space sold to another flat purchaser in the same Society. The complainants alleged that they were thereafter compelled to park their vehicle outside the Society compound.

The Commission ruled that Managing Committee of the Cooperative Housing Society can now decide fresh parking arrangements by cancelling the allotment of parking spaces made by their Builder by adopting a suitable bye-law. The complainants sought compensation from the Developer for selling parking spaces in breach of provisions of the Maharashtra Ownership of Flats Act, 1963. The Developer contended that he had never agreed to sell or allot any parking space to the complainants. The Commission discarded the Developer’s contention, reiterating the settled legal position that the Developer cannot sell or allot any parking space, which forms part of the common amenities of the Housing Society.

  2. Robin Pakrashi says:

    Honorable Supreme court Ruled Out on 29/08/2010 That Developer cannot sell open spaces and stilt car peaking areas in the building which they have promoted. kindly let me know whether this is applicable to the state of Maharashtra or whole of India Including West Bengal? Also let me know that apart from the flat owners can the open car parking spaces be sold to outsider who do not own any flat in the same building.And also without any NOC from flat owners.

  3. mazhar s rangwala says:

    what i want to know is whether the society can sell the parking spaces within the society premises to the members & is it legal on their part to collect the amount for the parking slot?
    in our society the society has purchased the parking lots & when any members wants to park they have to pay parking charges per hour, is this legally right?

    • shariq says:

      Dear mazhar,
      Please let me know the reply if you have received it. I too had a similar query.
      Would appreciate your reply. Thanks.

    • Rishardd@gmail.com says:

      This cant be done the society cant purchase the parking space nor sell the parking space they can only allot parking space on first come first serve basis and on annual rotation and charge parking charges but not hourly. I have been doing some research on this topic myself and have come to this conclusion. as per MCS rule 39 they cant. you can take them to consumer court for this and also file a complaint with your sub registar office governing society rules.

      • Mahendra Sharma says:

        My question is this: If the parking slot allotted to a member is big enough to park more than one car, within the markings of the slot, can the Society prohibit that and/or charge for the second car. This is like saying, only x numbers of people can live in a flat allotted, any number above x will either have to buy another flat or pay a fine/penalty for every extra person. M.R.Sharma

  4. Sam Silva says:

    The Builder is not allotting parking… says has deficit parking… but allots parking to flats purchased later to someone else…. what is the recourse….
    also as per new DCR, one parking per flat is compulsory.. my flat size is 850sq.ft. .. so he actually has 1 parking per flat.. but either he is allotting additional parking to someone else or is lying… what is the recourse… I am ready to pay a price for the same.

  5. pradeep makkar says:

    can one park a commercial vehicle(cargo) car in an allotted parking space.of a co-operative society.

  6. Dear Sir

    Whether as per the Supreme court order, 2nd purchaser of a flat can be entitled for parking lot sold by the I st buyer.

    In this case the ii nd buyer agreement did mention about the sale of parking lot but the area of flat sold is 704 sq.ft but with the stilt parking it will be 870 sg.ft.

    I am the secretary of a Subham CHSL at Kandivili west and I need this clarification as there are more than 5 members who are ii nd purchasers claiming stilt parking said to have been sold by the I buyer.

    With regard

  8. Saurabh says:

    Hi,

    I have purchased a flat in a resedential complex in Thane, builder is asking for 1.5 Lakh for (open parking) and 2.5 L for podium parking space (all in cash), he will issue parking allotment letter after making payment.The society is not yet formed as the construction of some of the buildings is still remaining.

    Now builder is not allowing flat owners to bring in their vehicles (those who have not paid builder for parking allotment letter)
    How do I proceed ?

  9. Anil Kannambille says:

    Can a society reserve its open car park spaces only for owners and not let owner’s tenant park cars in that slot ? Apparently the resolution was passed to this effect in the AGM of the society?

    • Varni says:

      Hi Anil,
      Did you have answer to your tenant vehicle parking problem? Please let me know.

    • Latesh Chetnani says:

      A tenant is called a Nominal member. A Nominal member is not a registered member. Hence parking charges do not apply to him. Hence Parking space can be denied to Nominal members, even if parking space is allotted to registered members including his family members and associate members,
      since Parking space is not a right granted to the registered members

      • Dear Latesh

        In a recent meeting at my society. A new rule was passed that all tenants will be paying parking charge of Rs 100 per month. However there is no charge for the owners.
        Is this a valid charge. Can the MC has the authority to incorporate a charge like this only on the tenants and most importantly is that valid only on the tenants and not on the owners.
        Kindly help and show some light on this.

        Regards
        Hemant V

      • veeyes1949 says:

        Parking charges are to be uniform. There cannot be any discrimination. Society may refuse parking for tenant but cannot discriminate as maintenance charges are paide as per bye laws to all.

  12. wd says:

    I have a two wheeler and park my vehicle for 8-10 hours in my parents society and go to office after parking my vehicle in their society but after coming from office, i visit them daily as they are senior citizens. I have been told by the chairman of the society not to park my vehicle outside the society gate either i.e. outside the society premises. Is it right or wrong. Please advice.

  13. Rohit says:

    Hi,
    I am resident of one of the society at Indirapuram, Ghaziabad, U.P.
    Recently our RWA did the parking slots distribution, block & flat wise, on the basis of early registration dates of individual flats. Although they supposed to loop in volunteers from each block on this distribution however they didn’t.

    The space allotted to me is the part of the passage and at the turn where it lies at high risk of being hit by the vehicles moving in and out. I have, also, doubt that some people with registration number after mine have been allotted space much before.

    Please suggest what best I can do here. Shall I, at individual level, file RTI, to GDA, to retrieve all the dates wise registration info of all flats in my building and within, also, how many parking slots are declared in respective registration.
    Regarding same I have already written two letters to RWA in last 3 days, however still awaiting for response.

    Please guide on RTI and other appropriate steps, which I could take here.

    Thanks,
    Rohit

  14. Ruhi says:

    We live in 7storey building in Mira Road. We own a flat and a parking garage added to it we have been allotted a still parking by the committee. The parking space owned is not sufficient for our 4wheeler as there is a still parking allotted not too far, this causes difficulty for us to park our 4wheeler. Instead we park our 2wheeler and have agreed to allow one more resident to park their 2wheeler. Now the society is forcing us to give away our parking space to some other resident and is not allowing us to sell our parking space. Added to it they are charging us with heavy penalties. Is there any solution to it?

  15. Arif Ahmed says:

    Can I park my cat in the society if I stay on rent other flat owners have 2 to 3 cars that is y the society is telling us to take our car out of the society please let me know what can be done as per laws

    • Prabhakar R.Kolvankar says:

      I am also facing same problem. Only difference is I am owner of flat.I am not getting tenent because society is not allowing parking to tenent and other members are having more than one car and allowed to park by society..Some space still is availabe in the premises.

  16. Sampa Kundu says:

    in my society, some small stilts does not belong to anyone so it should be first come first serve basis, but some of the members and particularly a member of managing committee dare to remove my 2wheeler twice for which even after lodging complaint no action has been taken by the society. secondly there is no proper cycle stand and no safety and security is maintained for the bicycle and so i am parking my cycle on the floor lobby for which i have been asked to remove the cycle from the lobby. how should i deal with the matter.

  17. Lancy Menezes says:

    in my society a couple of 1 BHK flats are owned by a company and it is understood that the owner of the company has given these flats to a relative and his family. These flats are been converted into a 2 BHK flat, one family lives in it but there are two separate doors to the said flats. The builder has sold a stilt parking to this company and the same is well mentioned in the sale agreement. Can this person who stays in the company’s / relative’s flat park his car in the still parking space marked in the company’s name ? Also, this relative has a local taxi of his own which is being parked from evening 9 .00 pm to morning 9.00 am.
    Please advise and let me know if this is right and permissible as per the CHS bye – laws and guidelines.

  18. Prachi says:

    Need clarification: If a society member residing has purchased a commercial premise within the society will she be allowed parking overnight. The current rule followed by society for commercial is that during the day parking is allowed( Not overnight). In this case the member has already utlised her residential parking allotment. Then will be allowed as per bye laws to park a another car?

  19. Nimesh says:

  21. Sunita says:

    Our building was registered in 1969 . It was constructed by 18 members after taking a loan from a PSU where they were working. At this time there was no concept of seperate status for parking spaces and any parking was also counted with the flat. At first the building was expected to have a ground floor but later after the beams were laid it was felt by the members that they needed to raise the flats on stilts as it was a low lying area and prone to flooding in monsoons. Extra loan was taken by each member and the stilt area was constructed and each member was assigned ownership of one parking bay. After about 20 years the accumulated TDR of the 18 members was collated and new flats constructed with each member assigned car lots in the open space of the building and their contract clearly telling them that the stilt area titles were irrevocably assigned to the older 18 members and they could only be allocated space in the open space lots. One of the new members also purchased the title of a stilt parking bay. Each of the 18 members had taken loan to build the stilt area and have paid property tax on it since it was introduced and none of the new members have to pay that, Some CHS new members who have more cars than allotted parking space are now saying that the new CHS bye laws require stilt area to be common area w/o reading the rules that clearly say this is only for the UNSOLD area. Can u pls guide as to what steps we can take to protect our investment which goes back to a time before even the rules of seperate parking spaces was introduced. We are worried that the new CHS rules can easily be misquoted. What protection does a house buyer have if in the future even flats purchased today become common property ?

    Dear Sir,

    Is there an order given by the Honarable Supreme Court to allot 1 car park per flat, whether it is still or open parking?

    If so where is it online? Please help

  27. Vishal says:

    Request for advice.

    I am a tenant in a housing society in Mumbai. The society recently had a lot system to allocate open parking spaces to the residents. However, my application was not considered as I am a tenant.

    The number of parking spaces is more than the number of apartments. Hence some members have been alotted parking space for even 2 or 3 cars.

    On asking, the only explanation I received was that it is the sole right of the members of the society to allot parking slots to its members. Since I am a tenant and not a ‘member’, my application would not be considered (even though each ‘member’ with atleast 1 car has atleast 1 parking slot).

    Please advice me whether this is permissible? If not, which law / bye-law should I refer to to clarify the same with the secretary of the society.

    Thanking you in advance.

  28. Amit Sheth says:

    • Rajan Mehta says:

      Dear Amit

      If you do not have the car, you cannot withhold the parking place, you must surrender this to to society and next in waiting will get the parking place, once you get a new car you can re apply and you will be allotted a parking based on availability, if in case any one is parking more than one car in the society this parking also can be taken over by the society and allotted to members who do not have a parking.

      • Aditi says:

        Hi Rajan,

        What if I have purchased the car parking from builder by paying certain amount. And it is mentioned in my Index II about my car parking location and area. Do I need to surrender my parking space in that case as well.

        I am ready to give my parking on rent if someone really need. Kindly advise, What can I do to save my parking space.
        Regards
        Aditi

  29. vishal says:

    Dear Sir,
    I would like to know that in my CHS there are only 25% old members having a possessions of 75% of total open parking space of the CHS .

    Which means other 75% members as well as all members visitors have to use only 25% of total parking space of the CHS to park their cars.

    That’s why because of this kiddies behaviour of old members ( for eg. If one kid asked to take toy of other kid , that other kid always reply no and says that, that toy is given by his or her father, uncle, etc. etc whenever that other kid don’t want to give his toy) my car has to move from one place to other parking place of CHS approximately every after 2 hrs.

    So it’s my humble request to you that please guide me to teach a lesson to all the members with kiddies behaviour. Thanking you.

  30. Manish Tater says:

    Sir, I have an stilt parking allotted by the builder. The stilt park can accommodate 3 cars at a time ( I park 3 cars there). Can the managing committee impose fine on me for wrong parking? is yes then should they not fine those who park more than one car in stilt parking?. To inform you there is no resolution on numbers of parks to be parked have been passed in AGM. Please help as the managing committee has imposed a fine of Rs. 30000/- on me.

  31. BHAVESH says:

    Hi i am bhavesh staying in vasai residing at star residency chs ltd and is a registered society. Committee members of society have decided that two wheelers are a necessity and 4 wheelers are luxury. Hence two wheeler parking will be free and 4 wheelers have to pay Rs200 each for the society fund. However they have a resolution they say that even if u pay still its not a fixed parking for you and if your vehicle is not found there any one can park it and i cant ask them to move their vehicle from there as well as the parking is the responsiblity of the owner and society or committee will not be liable or responsible for it.

    Please let me know if this forced rule right or can i file a case against the committe as per thr old or new bye laws as i feel i am harrased for no reason.

    Regards,
    Bhavesh Jethwa

    • yazdi says:

      Normally, such decisions are taken at the AGM and not at the Managing Committee level. They are right when they say that there is no fixed space to be allotted. Here again, the normal practice is that everyone adjusts to a particular spot over a period of time with mutual understanding.

        Extortion from tenants:

        Sir, can the RWA (Navi Mumbai) arbitrarily charge for extra car park. They are charging one amount for owners and double the amount from tenants. Also if your car gets vandalized while in parking lot of society, where can I complain. Please advice.

    Dear All,
    Myself, Paras Malviya, owner of One flat in Pune. I do not have any parking, as my First owner didn’t have any parking allocated. Now Society has allocated me one parking space based on first come first serve basis. They asked for the rent of it. This is my first parking space, and being a flat onwer, I am required to have atleast one parking space as Necessity. Do we have any law which protect me to allow parking space without any charges as first car parking. Currently society has issued a circular saying that september 2014 onwards we have to pay 1800 per month. This has not discussed so far in any General Body Meeting.
    They are not differentiating dealing first car parking space seeker to more than one car parking space requirements. Please advice.

    I am a co-op and share holder of an apt. I was informed last month that the parking in my facility would be closed for 4 days, so I deducted a pro-rated amount that totaled $16 when payment was due on Nov. 1. At the same time, I was informed that my parking fee would go up another $10 and that my maintenance fee another $25 in less than 1 year. I pay the management company parking and maintenance together every month. I informed them that I was deducting 4 days of parking fees ($16). They said I could not do this and would be subject to late fees and losing my parking spot. Is this legal?

  36. Sunil Gupta says:

    I have purchased a flat along with one closed garage in the society in Mumbai. There is a waiting list for the open car parking space. I own more than 2 cars. Our society has recently passed the rule in AGM that if any member who is owning a closed garage in the society, he will not be entitled to open parking space. But this rule will be applicable only to new incoming members. The old members who already have a garage and also having an open parking, will continue to have open parking also.

    Otherwise the as per bye-laws of the society says that open parking spaces to be allotted on the “first come first served” basis.

    My question is whether the new incoming members holding a garage can be denied the right of allotment of open car parking ? Old members continue to have both garage as well as open parking spaces. Is this discrimination legal? Whether such rule is good in law ?

    Please reply.

    Regards,

    Hi,
    I have a question.
    I have purchased a garage hence it is technically my property however the society is charging garage tax. So I would like to know if this right on their part in the sense Are they allowed to charge tax for if I own the garage? If they are charging tax are they supposed to provide maintainence to the garage like basic repairs?

    Also would that be considered as my first parking slot and would it be right for the society to charge me for a second parking spot?

    Looking forward to your reply

  86. Divya Kataria says:

    Can society cancel the open parking of an owner of a flat. The Society has recently passed a rule in the AGM to cancel the parking allotted to my flat (which is currently occupied by the tenant) stating that there were lot of problem in parking the cars in society due to space constraints. Their reasoning is as per the open area parking policy, tenant cannot be given open parking if any member needs the same. So they have decided to issue necessary letter for cancellation of the parking to my Flat.
    My question is (i) whether the owner has unilateral right on open parking – can society unilaterally cancel the owner’s parking (because tenant is residing their presently) and on what grounds;
    (ii) If the owner wants to sell the said flat in future, the parking slot should be made available to the owner; and the new owner should have a right to park the vehicle in the society.
    Kindly let me know.

    • veeyes1949 says:

      yes. The mc has aright to cancel open parking allotted to a owner who has rented his flat when there was request from a permanant owner for parking. Gb onlly makes parking allotment. When the owner comes back, he has a pririty for getting parking by asking anothrr tenant parking to vacate

Now, the society is not allowing my brother to par my car in the society premises as the addresses are different.So my question is even if the car is under my name and I stay at the above address since the last 5 years, is there a law that the car needs to be registered at the new address?. Because the old house still belongs to US and my passport bears the same address.

    Hi

    I live in a registered society with around 300 flats..I have a stilt parking and own a car parked in it. Children of our society keep playing around, they also play out door games like cricket football etc.. despite been intructed not to do so..The other day one kid happened to kick a ball straight into my rear glass shattering the whole glass pane.
    Eight children were playing football.
    The society says they are not responsible for such thing and they person who caused the damage and the person suffering the loss should solve such things amicably,
    The kids parent are not willing to pay, they say that all who were playing needs to shell out and bear the cost. The other parents say we will not shell out cause it wasnt our kid who kicked the ball and causing the glass to break.
    Can some one advise what has to be done. ?

    Am I eligible to get a parking space within the Society in Mumbai if I am staying at my Grandfather’s flat who has expired around few years back? The flat is still on my grandfather’s name and I am staying with my Father who is the son of my Grandfather. However the society is denying to give parking as they are saying that the flat needs to first register on the nominee’s name who is my Father. But due to internal conflict between heirs(my uncles) this is not yet been done and will take few more years till which it will not possible to wait for parking space. Kindly advice.

  99. Saurabh says:

    In Mumbai can CHS Management Commitee restrict the residential son(only he resides there) for parking vehicle if the membership is still on the name of expired father. Just to give overall idea of the situation..There was no filled nomination during death of father (no nominee was identified) and hence membership of father is not been carried to any sons out of seven. There are total 7 sons and due to internal conflicts between sons the nominee is still not identified and still the maintaince bill is issued on Fathers name(who is expired). So in this case, can the society restrict the son for parking who still lives in that flat

  101. M R. Sharma says:

    If I have a parking slot duly allotted to me, which is big enough to accommodate 2 cars, can the Society object to the same and charge me for the 2nd car?

    • Tejas salunke says:

      You can park your second vehicle only you have space for parking. No one can stop you doing this …but if a new car comes in then the member with second car should vacate the space

  105. Lekha fernandes says:

    Dear Sir,
    I live in a colony and the society of the building in which I live levies car parking charges every month. I have a second car which i park outside my building in a lane. Now a new association is formed by the buildings in the lane and they are asking all the car owners who have parked their cars in the lane,to pay parking charges to them. Kindly let me know if this is justified and legal.
    Thankyou.

    • Tejas salunke says:

      Hello
      This is completely absurd. You don’t have to pay for parking outside the building .

      Report it to police station if they force you to do the same.
      Regards

    Hi

    i live in a mahada society on rent , we have three cars and we have been alloted prking accordingly. rent per month for each car was Rs 200 , now suddenly the committe is asking for 1000 for each car . when we asked for explanation they had no explanation.

    I don’t know what to be done.

  107. Bankim says:

    Co.op housing society does not have conveyance, even after that society have right to charge for parking alloted?

  108. Swapnil says:

    – The vacant space left beside the Building does it comes under society or its total control is in hand of the land owners who gave their land to develop.

  109. Bhatkal says:

    Our society recently decided on rotational parking system of society own parking space. Does it apply to original members who have purchased from builder paying large amt of money ?. Society open spaces hv been allotted two yrs ago. Does the rotation apply to only society’s open spaces and not members ownwed par ki g stilts ? . Please clarify.

    • V Srinivasan says:

      Builder has to provide parking for all the residents and he cannot sell stilt or open parking to anyone. If they had paid the money, the same should have been incorporated in the sale deed including the space opf parking area otherwise the letter of allotment by the builder is only a piece of paper.. Any space said to have been purchased has to be reigstered and stamp duty to be paid to the value. Further the society has every right to give rotational allotment depending upon the decison of allotment process by the Managing committee.

  110. Sanjiv Sarnaik. says:

    I am a tenant at Thane, and have made agreement for flat with parking. The society has allowed the same for last three years. Now all of a sudden, the society members are talking about no parking for tenants. What is the remedy?

  111. PRAMILA Talekar says:

    My car is not going out on daily basis so the our unregistered society members says you can not park car in the car parking and actually we come first so there was no that much cars so is this correct??

  112. Paras Malviya says:

    We wanted to understand that as per Bye laws we as first car parking are supposed to pay parking rental charges or not.

    Hello, I had purchased a flat in Thane (741 sq ft carpet area) in 2009. I had not purchased a parking spot. Now housing society has been formed. But the builder is still selling parking spots. As per the Maharashtra housing society bylaws, I understand that the builder cannot sell parking spots. Please let me know how I should take this up with the Managing Commitee. What should be the next steps so that i can get a parking spot without paying the 10 lakhs.
