    Dear Yazdi Sir,

    Ours is type D Society. 3/4 members had appealed the society to eliminate 3 members who were either inactive or incapacitated. Our Secretary today put a notice on the notice board that a member (whose name he mentioned) has been inducted in the committee to strengthen the Committee. Is this the right way to elect? He has not called the committee meeting for this purpose.

    Thanks Sir
    Nafisa Trivedi

  11. RK says:

    Seeking advice:-
    A resident member of the housing samiti submits his form to seek / stand for member of society managing committee member.
    Then well before last date of withdrawal submits an application to withdraw his name.
    Thereafter on second thoughts before the cut off time on last date, takes back his application of withdrawing his name and decides to stand for the election.
    What is the the procedural process ?

    I wish to know of procedures followed when any major work is to be carried out in a housing society , viz procedure of floating tenders .
    My Society is insisting on issuing new additional share certificate , which they claim is mandatory according to the new byelaws , we were issued 5 shares of 50 each in 1990 , is this legal .
    Also Car Shed made has not been given approval by BMC , can I refuse payment ,I don’t own a car

  16. Rohit bhosale says:

    Sir actually I want to say that recently an election has been occurred in my society and I was the candidate too of school category. I opposition of me there was only 1 person of school category. After the results cam I lose . The opposition of me got a huge vote coz they were having one whole group of 15 people of only one logo . So sir I want to ask that can the opposition of me then shifted to general category . Is this a rule

  17. Jayita Chatterjee says:

    Dear Sir,

    Please can you advise whether the Companies Act is applicable for filing nomination in an election in a registered housing society in India( Ltd co)? Is there any such rule that one has to pay Rs 1 lac for filing nomination in election in a registered housing association? It is burdensome for people to pay that money for voluntary community services. Please can you throw some lights on this issue as soon as possible?

    Our housing society BOD (which is registered as a ltd company) told us no one can participate in the election of the committee unless Rs 1 lac is deposited by each person as per Companies Act. If a candidate doesn’t get 25% vote, the entire money is forfeited. We have few senior people who are retired, however, willing to work voluntarily for the society and depositing Rs 1 lac is burdensome for them.

    If there is any such rule, can it be changed by EOGM or any other easier process?

    Please advise.

  18. Dear Sir, the term of the Management Committee of our society ends on 14.09.2017. I have been trying to get the address to whom Form E 2 is to be sent. but could not get it. PLEASE GUIDE ME.
