I have recently purchased an apartment in Nagpur for which a deed of declaration has been duly executed as per Maharashtra Apartment Ownership Act 1970. Though the builder has not constituted the association formally as he should have , but the dwellers of the condominium have started contributions ,elected office bearers by consensus and are managing and functioning like apartment association. I am told by other members (and some lawyers too )that this association needs to be registered . My question is that isn't the process of registration of association already accomplished with execution of deed of declaration itself. Is there any other requirement that is required to be met for calling this association a regsitered one?
