With regardsto the non-occupancy charges, as per bye lawys of the Co-op. Society. society cannt charge more than 10% of the monthly maintenance bill. 10% charges is exclusive of the property tax, water charges, insurance premium which is not a service given by the society.
Charging 1.5 times of the monthly maintenance is overcharging. you may write to the society to re-look your charges and rectify their mistakes.
The Registrar can be compared to the ‘friendly neighbourhood Spiderman’ that helps society and committee members when they are stuck in an imbroglio, prevents any wrongdoing by greedy middlemen, intervenes when the society is slacking in its duties and without the mask or the costume acts as the legally appointed supervisor who can be counted on for resolutions and redressals.
Your society is illegally charging 1.5 times maintenance. It has to be 10% as non occupancy charges. You have to take legal action against society. You can send legal notice to society and afterwards you may approach co-op registrar and file complaint.
