Dear friends, My query is twofold 1. The newly formed society's committee has passed a circular stating guidlines for renovations. My specific query is if it is legal for them to charge members renovating their flats service charges per day for the labour to use the lifts and whether they can ask for a percentage of the renovation amount spent like 5% spent on painting of the house to be given to the society, not as deposit but as a payment 2. The society is issuing receipts of amounts over RS 5000 with affixing a revenue stamp. Is this legal. Can I insist on them affixing a revenue stamp Thanks

Under which authority the Management Committee is authorised to charge lift usage ? Societies are "generally" exempted from affixing revenue stamp/ stamp duty for receipt of money. Which state (Delhi/Haryana/Maharashtra/Gujarat/West Bengal etc.) the Society is located ? Whether the Society is a Cooperative or any other type of Society? What is your locus standie/concern ?
