(Querist) 08 February 2011 This query is : Resolved 
We are 4 minority members who have not signed the consent letter due to non availability of floor plan, only a part of closed parking to members by the developer etc. Now after examining the indemnity bonds signed by the managing committee members, we find:

B/ Some members have signed after 15 days.

D/ When secretary signed, there is no signature of a witness.
E/ There is an overwriting by a member of M.C.
F/ There is no signature/ acknowledgment of the bonds by registrar and we don't know whether the registrar is aware.
Q1/ What should be the value of the stamp duty for an indemnity bond?
Q2/ If a member does not sign within 15 days?
Q3/ If no signing date is mentioned?
Q$/ Is witness's signature mandatory? Even for secretary who signs the indemnity bond?

Go to your society Registrar and file a complaint against your MC.
On verification,if bond found to be defective in law,the entire committee stands removed and dismissed.
