My client is a registered society under scities registration act 2001 of A.P.. The society consists of 7 members who are also executive commitee members. Thus in total there are seven ,embers only. Recently the vice oresident passed away in july 2022. When the committee meeting was convened and a new vice president and new executive commmittee member was elected. When the resolutions were submitted to socities registrar, they refused saying that since the number of members were below 7 on date of meeting it is defunct society.
My question is under section 18 of socities registration act, the society has perpetual succession. If so how the registrar can say the number is below 7 since the legal heirs automatically step in
Is the registrar justified
