procedure to be an associate member in the committee
Mhada property owned by my husband in Lottery 2010. My name is not there on any property related documents like stamp duty or shares. I want to be an associate member and would like to be a part of committee. Due to some reasons my husband doesn't want to be active in society as well as committee. When we gave application for associate member the committee said we need to go by Gift Deed procedure which includes some cost of stamp duty. Please tell me if it is correct or wrong? What current updated bylaws say about associate members & their rights & procedure to follow? How long it would take? If our AGM is in Sept 2017, shall I be eligible member on committee & can approach to be elected for 1 lady vacant seat, 1 our wing vacant seat & 1 general vacant seat due to resignation of current committee member? Please revert soon as I have many problems with society & they don't cooperate as it is press enclave & I am through general public lottery and only 2 non press owners in a wing. Rest all are on rent.
Ma’am quite frankly you must make sure that your husband who is presumably a member must include your name in share certificate of the society. Once this is done you can attend meetings in his absence and be a full-fledged associate member. Lastly you also need a member consent to stand for election. If this is done your eligibility will be fulfilled.
To determine the validity of your husband's claim, it is important to examine the Memorandum of Association for your society. The Societies Registration Act, 1860 does not provide the rights of the associate members but it allows the Society to formulate it on its own. Please cheack the process given in the Memorandum of Association.
