Sirs, 1)Can a paid Manager of the Housing Society contest in the Societys election if there are no other disqualifications? 2)In terms of the Govt. Gazette Notification dtd.29/10/2003, the two year membership criteria for contesting in Co-operative Society's election is not mandatory now. Since no amendments have been made in the Bye-Laws and / or Rules in this regard can the same be made applicable? Please confirm. 3)If no nomination papers are received by the stipulated date how will the Returning Officer conclude the election process?

1) . a manager is not a member . he cnanot contest elections .
2)if no nominations are recieved for elections then memebers in AGM generally elect members of managing Committee
3)the problem is that no mmebers want to contest elections as it is a thankless job and you receive only brick bats for work being done by you . 4) if no member is ready to be a managing committee member then administartor will be appointed for society

Sirs, My first query was not clear and hence I would like to elaborate on the same. The question is whether the Manager (who happens to be a member of the Society) is eligible to contest the society elections of the Society if there are no other disqualifications?
Secondly, as per the Government Gazette Notification dtd.29/10/2003, the two year membership criteria for contesting elections of the co-operative housing societys has been done away with. Even though no amendments have been made to the Bye Laws in this regard, it has been confirmed by the Mumbai Dist. Housing Federation that the two year criteria is not mandatory now. Moreover, is the Gazette Notification not enough to make it applicable?
