societies registration act 1860

Audit Executive

As per Indian Societies Registration Act of 1860 a society can be formed with minimum 7 members to the MOA.

However, if the no. of members in the later years falls below 7....what are the consequences?

Please provide guidance in the above matter.

Ashish,


The principal Act does not provide for dissolution of socieities by Registrar. But where the MoA and Bye-laws of the society to do not contain any provision with regard to dissolution of society in case the number of members falls below seven, then the Registrar of Societies and/or the court may dissolve the society by cancelleing the certificate of registration.


The Registrar normally inquires or investigates into the activities of the society and cass upon the society to show cause why it should not be dissolved. The Registrar may move the court for making an order for dissolution of the society, if the cause shown by the society is not satisfactory.
