This appeal is preferred by the Appellant Bank challenging the impugned Order passed by the DRT, Bangalore in ASA-16/2006 on 12.2.2008.

2.The facts of the case leading to the filing of this Appeal may be set out briefly as under:

The Appellant Bank initiated the proceedings under Section 13(4) of the Securitisation and Reconstruction of Financial Assets and Enforcement of Security Interest Act, 2002 (herein after called as SARFAESI Act) against the 1st respondent and his guarantors for recovery of loan amount of Rs.4,92,000/-, availed by the 1st respondent.   



In the above facts of the case, the points for consideration are as follows:

The cooperative Societies Act enables  to proceed against the defaultes by filing Arbitration and Execution proceedings.Also  could proceed by caonditional attachment s of the properties.So,they need not resort to Searfeasi Act.
