Can a Real Estate Agent or his Family member be part of CHS Committee?

Hi,

I wanted to know if an Real Estate Agent or his Family member is eligible for becoming (if elected) part of Housing Society Managing Committee member ?

Won't it be a conflict of interest?

Is there any Law that restricts their participation in MC Elections? If yes, then kindly quote the Law (or Maharashtra govt order) that says so.

Please guide me in this regard.

Thanks 🙏

The newly amended section of the Act says thus:

154B-23(1)(ii) No person shall be eligible to be appointed, nominated, elected or co-opted for being Member of the Committee, if he carries on business of letting, sub-letting and selling of flats in the housing society of which he is a member.

According to the reading of the above section a real-estate agent who does not carry on business of letting, sub-letting and selling of flats in the housing society of which he is a member, but carries on the business in other societies can be a member of his Society's MC.

Is this applicablr to a non registered real estate agent or only to registered agents like rera regustered

It is applicable to all agents, whether registered or not. But in the case of an unregistered agent, he may claim that he is not an agent and you may have bring evidence.
