What, if the MC does not allow to form the committee to solve the problems.?
Last Elections are held o. 30/09/10, when the elections are due.
During the process of Re-development, the existing building is demolished to construct a new building. Can accumulated sinking fund amount be refunded to the existing members or same proportion of amount towards sinking fund contribution be collected from the new members who are sold flats by the developer ? This is a common problem being faced by all societies undertaking re-development project. Regards. Anil
Cooperative Housing Society –Mumbai
Society Committee should not compel member to approach Hon’ble court for avoidable disputes
Housing Society charge members for Festival Advance, Cultural activities, etc If any member resist ,member appeal gets rejected on plea that such charges are approved in the annual general body meeting. Here what is requested , some member may not be
in a position to pay such charges, else should approach Court to settle such disputes .
Unfortunately there is no “Ombudsman’ for Cooperative Housing Societies , nor Deputy Registrar ,cooperative Societies is authorized to instruct Housing Society.
Member must pay in time monthly maintenance, Property tax, sinking fund etc Which are essential ,mandatory but for other charges member should not be compelled
If any member make delay in paying maintenance ,Housing Society levy interest , but when Member places deposit required to carry out Renovation of flat or renting out flat ,society do not pay any interest to member for a period ,deposit was kept by the Society.
Recent circular from Deputy Registrar of Housing society ,compelling member to attend minimum number of Housing society meetings is impracticable, since some member may have left India, some may have let out their flat, some may be shifted outside Mumbai.
This decision needs re look

Grievances Redressal on Aaple Sarkar is just an eyewash and nothing else as per my own experience. During the course of last one and half year I have uploaded the self explanatory documents against the law violator authorities of co-operation dept along with the complaints variously. Instead of considering strong and substantive evidence presented with written complaints, findings of the official who himself has violated laws and misled the Govt. Authorities, have been treated and reproduced as a reply.
I have too experience same thing. Ministry of Cooperative, Registrar of Society are not proactive. Merely enjoys salary at the cost of Tax payers money.
I have suggested, Coop Housing Societies must main separate account for money/fund collected for social activities, this shall generate transparency ,but no response  Coop Housing Society recovers monthly fee for issuing NOC if Flat is sublet, Flat owner has to take prior approval of Society member before subletting flat ,but Coop Housing society do not take any responsibility if Tenant do not pay rent, pay electricity Bill . Then why to pay to Coop Housing society, why prior approval?
Is it legal for a all housing societies to have 2 gates in front of the building to avoid outsiders from parking vehicles in the open space left for road cutting?
