I am a member of a cooperative society. I , along with some other people decided to use an unoccupied common flat for indoor sports such as table tennis, carom, etc. The flat remains empty and is a propoerty of the society, not an individual. We took consents from most parents and they are in support of the initiative. But the occupant in the adjacent flat is against such use. And there are 3 other occupants adjacent to the unoccupied flat who are okay with this activity.
I want to ask whether a member has a right to stop a majority from using the common area of the society fr the benefit of the society.
The reason put forward by the occupant is that his children are disturbed by the noise in the adjacent room.While every other flat has an adjacent flat that is occupied, the dissenting occupent has that common( and empty) flat adjacent to his flat.
Taking that argument further, anyone can raise a finger on his/her neighbour and ask him to leave because his children cannot study because of the noise.
Do i have the right to use the area if i take the consent of say 31 out of the 60 flats.
