In a building organized as a co-operative housing society, for a member owning a flat the area within the external walls of the flat belongs to him. All the other areas outside of all the flats in the building such as compound, staircases lift and lift well; passages, terrace etc. collectively referred to as “common areas” belong to the Society. If you have the unquestioned right to use those areas, then other members can also make such claim and there will be confusion and conflict.
Managing Committee is not the Society. But a duly elected Managing Committee is vested with powers listed or specified in the bye-laws, Co-operative Societies Act and the Rules. If a particular member wants to use any part of the common areas for any purpose, the permission of the Managing Committee is necessary. In the first place you should apply in writing to the Managing Committee for permission. If the Managing Committee does not want to give permission, it should give in writing the reasons there for. The aggrieved member can then complain to the Registrar. The complaint can be informal on plain paper or formal in Form P. The Registrar should call for details from both sides, and/or call them to his office to explain each side’s case and then give his decision.
The Registrar can remove the Committee, elect another Committee under his supervision or appoint an Administrator under section 78 of the Act. But the conditions to make the Registrar to Act under Section 78 have to be very serious. He won’t do that just because they imposed a penalty on you, which they had no power to do. He will just ask them not to impose the penalty. If the Managing Committee does not obey the order of the Registrar and does not go on appeal to the co-operative court within the stipulated time, it will become another case of contempt.
I suspect that you are not disclosing the whole truth. What are the “other allegations” against the Committee? It may be that the Registrar has sent his notice on the basis of the other allegations. It is true that your entire Society will be in real trouble if an administrator is appointed. But before appointing an administrator the Registrar must explore the possibility of electing another Managing Committee. If your Managing Committee members are scoundrels as you say, the Registrar and the Administrators are no angels either. The Administrator will collect his remuneration from you and you cannot question him the way you question a Managing Committee.
If a majority of the members are not satisfied with the MC, they can bring a no-confidence motion against them at a requisitioned EGM, instead of going to the Registrar.
If you give more information I can suggest what to do.
