    I am Hrushikesh Phatak ( ) Chairman of reputed housing society in pune. In Our society’s last AGM society increase amount of Maintenance. In our society we have Few row houses few duplex 3 bhk and remaining all are 3 bhk. Row houses are outside of compound wall of society but Builder ragistar society with row houses. basic question to provide security to row house we need 4 gaurds and remaining all 8 building required 4 gaurd. there are 30 row houses and members those leaving in building start questing that why we are spending extra money on security when 80 members are need 4 guards . means they want to say row house members suppose to pay extra. During AGM society increase the maintance fees for all but littile extra then building members for row houses. Now members from row houses suggested to charge monthly maintenance according to built up area. and they shows that if we charge with built up area we dont need to take voting for it because they knows every time 80 members will sit in majority.
    I need your help can society charge like this ? If yes then which low is supporting it.

  26. Amalendu Shekhar says:

    Dear sir
    I am a member of a society in Virar. My flat is on ground floor. Some work had been started by the managing committee in 2012 as per AGM decisions. Before completing the work managing committee had completed its 5 years and new committee came in power that refused to complete the remaining work and started new work mostly convenient to the managing committee members and their supporters​ keeping the rules aside. They did not attended the written complaint of ground floor members regarding drainage system that was over flowing around their flats nearly two years. Affected members had stopped making payments towards maintenance charges and approached the deputy registrar . There has been no concrete decision taken by the registrar office. Affected members took initiative and got necessary things done. I was the worst affected and spend Rs. 9000/- . During one AGM Matter was raised and decided to pay me back . Society paid me half the money Rs 4500/- that also after nine months. Taking a compromising root affected members decided to pay the dues without interest but some managing committee members insisting to pay us with interest.
    Please advise me why should we pay maintenance that also with interest while we have concrete evidences of non maintenance ?

  27. Dear sir
    Is it possible to dissolve the present managing committee and disqualify them from contesting next election for their ill legal activities? And whom to approach for the same.
