will you pls give the status of this election process. what is the procedure a society has to do when election is due.
Process is same as general election done in India. Society is suppose to give updated I & J Register to Election officer.
Our society is under Maharashtra Co-op. Societies Act & Rules and 52+ years old and we are regularly conducting our AGM before the due date and having election year year without any delay. As per the Commissioner's order we came to understand that election should not be kept after December 2013 and should be kept only under the supervision of a representative from the Registrar. Ignoring this rule we have conducted election every year and even this year also we had election. Is there any violation of rule or any penalty will be imposed or legal action will be taken on us. Please explain in detail. Further, we have not adopted the New Model Bye-laws 2013 as it is not yet made available in the Mumbai District Co-operative Federation @ Vikas Premises. Please explain the procedures to adopt the new model bye-laws and also we came to understand that some non-judicial stamp is required on the covering letter. Pl. let us know the denomination. Your co-operation in this regard will be solicited and highly appreciated. Thanks & Regards.
You can not conduct election yourself. It has to do with Co-operative State Election commission only. No penalty will impose. As per Model Bye-Laws 2001 onwards committee period is 5 years. How you can conduct election every year? Is your Auditor sleeping all this year? how he/she not give remark in Audit report that you are not followed the Bye-laws ? Committee can not take any major finical decision.As Commissioner of Co-operation is not yet approved model bye-laws 2013. so federation is not printed the bye-laws so no need to adopt the new bye-laws -2013. As soon as bye-laws approved by commissioner then federation will print the bye-laws and its adoption forms. On which Rs. 25/- court fees has to affixed.
Respected Sir,Thanks for your valuable advise. Previously our society's managing committee were retired and old people and now some flats were sold out and new members have to occupy. Now that Our AGM & election for the year 2014-15 was conducted and the new managing committee has also formed. Immediately after AGM in the managing committee meeting new Secretary & Treasurer was also elected for the year 2014. Kindly advise whether the new managing committee has to continue the office or the old managing committee should be retained. Thanks & Regards.
old committee should retained
