Housing welfare societies and deficiency of service

Most of modern gated colonies developed by DDA GDA JDA and private builders are gated or non gbated and invariably are maintained not bymunicipal corporations  or DDA but by regsitered welafre societies under societies act and are covered also by aprtments acts of states


The members are obliged and forced to give  contrinution but are hardly protected and given adequate servcies by societies which are again based on elected body called managing comittee csetism regionalism corruprtion and non accountabiklity .There is no authority effective to control the foul act perpetrators. 

Sinc emember pays for servcies provided t society and there are essential servcies involved like water supply electricity within campus  gate securuity and common araeas alike comunity halls and parks , are members covered by deficiency of servcies and claliaming comopensation form socuiety ?

Where they can complain for intervetion agaijst politicking and corrupt MC normally for 2-4 years period and diversion of funds not giving balance csheets details budgets and arbitrary exppenses

Vashishtha sir Thanks a lot. I wish to draw your attntion to fact that reguisterar of  hosuing qwelfaee society dioes not have any powers. The designated tribunal /authotiy is DM of district. Secondly thety are in Meerut for ghaziabad and NOIDA area and full of society cases.Crrupt of course as you know,


IN fact UP aprtment act was passed in 2011 and later amendments isued by Allhagabd high court  in 2017 and it was directed that RWAs are not legal .Members should form AoA under UP apartment act ( more than 4 flats if present ) .The law is well set inclduing accounting . But no one follows it .60% atleast not folowing and behave like cheap polictial groups in castes and region line and dont have any transaparency arbitraririly increase maintenenace ,no ccoutns are given ,details not explained and their main job welfare activities like water ,electricity fcilties in common areas are not looked after. It is a minuscule model of national state of politcis and cheap hooligansism in india going on. 


In such circumstaces

theree interventions are possible 


1.Piolice for urgent interferences and illegal acts 

2.Embezzlement of acoutns 

3.Breach of procedures in UP aprtment acts 


How NCRDC may help ? will it entertain direct complaintt o issue directive orderss to RSAs through out coutnry ? on matters like their main duties, not to intefere in priovacy and free moveemnt and right to libe in fignity and proper acc*nting and giving detauled accoutn statements qwith eetais of work done . 50% of money in my view with seevra society complaints are embezzled by the guys who manages to enter MCs.

What is funny is n local authority takes any responsibilityof civil facilites telling it is gated closed colony  but they take all charges development and munmipal charges like other houses which are non gated.It is a scam going on.It is of vital PI suit as it incolves suffering of millions of such occupants fo third rate RWAs.

RWAs habelmited role to play and have limited sanctity and legal status now,


In view of all this kindly give a JUDCIOUS TIPs step by step whicj I may cnsider following
