1. Irrespective of any General Body Resolution or whatever, it would be illegal to collect "festival charges", from members, just simply because there is no provision /clause in the Model Bye-Laws of the Society, that is issued by the Coop. Dept. The only expenses for "cultural activities" permitted by the Coop. Dept. is "Independence day", "republic day" and "1st may". PERIOD.

2. Refuse to pay the Festival Charges and Complaint to the local Registrar of Coop., and additionally also file a grievance petition in the local consumer court, for redressal of your grievances.

Is there any problem with celebrating functions with co-residents and enjoy harmonious relations?
If so, challenge the AGM resolution before RCS through a local prudent lawyer.
