Service society

from 5 society committee members, 3 members of service society will resign then election of new committee is necessary or without any election they can fill-up a 3 vacant seat.??

A society requires at least 7 Executive Members to form the society under the Societies Registration Act.  Then 5 members?  If any post of executive members falls vacant for any reason, that post shall be filled by a special resolution passed by the 2/3rds of 3/5th majority of General Body.



What is the type of "society"?

Vague and incomplete facts can not lead to form proper opinion and oblige.

It is better to consult and engage a local prudent lawyer for appreciation of facts/ documents, professional advise and necessary proceeding.

What is the material fact?


I agree with the opinion of expert Mr. Kavksatyanarayanan in this regard.

A  Society can be created by a minimum of 7 or more persons.

Minimum of seven people is required to form a society. And these societies are governed by the 'Societies Act, 1860'.

As per Bye Law No 128. Filling up Casual Vacancy on Committee 

The Committee may fill a casual vacancy on the Committee by nomination out of a same class of Active Members in respect of which the casual vacancy has arisen as per section 73 CB and as per the instruction issued by State Cooperative Election Authority.

Bye Law No 127(b) 

in case of emergency, the Committee may place a resolutions and get the same passed by the Committee Members, however the same be placed before the next subsequent meeting.

Bye Law No 131(e) Resignation of the entire Committee
