Bombay Public Trust Act
(Querist) 07 August 2009
This query is : Resolved
Please could anyone help
My query is if we read the Bombay Public Trust Act, 1950, there is no provision that says an order of the concerned charity commissioner is a must.It only says that the charity commissioner, if he thinks to hold an enquiry will do so.
If I have filed a change report relating to addition of name of a Trustee, the said change reprot has been sent through post after few years I find out that the said change report is pending in the office of the charity commissioner.
Whose duty is it to pass orders
Or if the Charity commissioner has passed an order for want of documents change report seen and filed,does that amount to acceptance of the name of the concerned person as a Trustee.
Also suppose if the name is not indicated in the Sch I, is the said person to be treated as a legal trustee or a de- facto trustee.
In one of my case, the change report has been pending, he is filing change reports as reporting trustee. Now the concerned commissioner, is saying that as his name is not indicated in the Sch I, he has no legal rights to sign change reports.
Could anyone please assist me in which section to read and which book to refer for elaborate clarification
Please its very important to me
