A member has complained to the Asst Registrar against Managing committee to produce certain documents under rti act.On the basis of that application Asst.registrar is pressurising us to submit those documents Even though we have made it clear to him that the member who has complained has not paid his maintainence for last 7 years and already a complaint under 101 of mcs act is pending with the same Asst. registrar .We also attached the copy of Gr by the Governer of Maharashtra stating that no member s complaint is to be entertained whatsoever of nature unless he clears all his society dues first.
Another judgement of supreme court dated 7 th october 2013 declaring that Cooperative housing societies are not public authority as they are not funded by government or financially assisted or owned by government .that is why These societies are not covered under Rti Act 2005 is also refered to the Asst.Registrar .But he still nsist for the documents and kept the complaint under 101 of mcs act pending since the member who complained is a influential person and capable of paying bribe.In such case if we refuse to submit the copies asked by Asst .Registrar What powers he can use and whether we can go for appeal with Deputy Registrar or complain to the Cooperative dept Commissioner .What kind of action a Registar can take against the managing commottee. All the records are clean and audit report is also uptodate. THe laws are there only in books how to apply them .
