Corrupt in the Registrar´s offices of Coop Housing Societies

The offices of Registrars of Coop Housing Societies set up to solve the problems of the housing society members which are faced almost by every member of housing society in Maharashtra are nothing but full of corruption.

I am myself witness to this corrupt officials regular corrupt practices who are paid to solve problems faced by members with the corrupt committee are in fact siting in that office to make money when you go for help.

In the first place they do not have landlines or Email contact for you to communicate with them and secondly, these officials come to office at any time to office and you need to spend your day to meet them if you are lucky to find them in their seats. I have gone through this painful experience and was shocked to see the Registrar´s office of Coop Housing societies in Konkan Bhuvan.

For the problem I was facing with my old society in getting my Property tax refund that belonged to me which also was the legal view of the registrar and his officials, but even after seferal trips to that office, my problem was not solved and I was advised to approach the Coop Court or Consumer court to get justice.

I was surprised, why these offices with so many officials are run at tax payers cost if they can not solve the problems of the people for which they are sitting their? Even when the Chairman of the same Housing society complained in writing to the Registrar of the financial frauds and corruption by the office bearers of the committee, no serious action was initiated against the Secretary and the office bearers.

What the Registrar did was appointed the Administrator over the Society committee who is nothing but a corrupt administrator doing nothing and the corrupt committee is paying him money ( its a bribe nothing else ) now not to come physically to check the accounts which are not regularly maintained and fraudulently managed to make money out of financial transactions. Some Society members are involved in managing the accounts of over 96 members of the society and the Administrator too is managed liberally by the corrupt members of the society.

My property tax refund is not returned to me as the law states and like me there are several others who are not paid. But the administrator appointed by the Registrar is making money from this society that I know from my reliable souce.

The point I am making here is, such government offices which are primarily set-up with the objectives to provide all the help to solve problems of the people of housing societies, if they are corrupt themselves, these offices should be closed.

In my several visits, I have seen many senior people, aged people coming from far places to see the Registrar with their serious issues for several months for the help and were feeling frustrated with the bitter experience with the corrupt officials.

Why the hell should we have such corrupt offices if they are only making money for themselves and getting paid at tax payer´s cost? Enjoying all the government perks at tax payer´s cost? And not giving him service?

Either close these offices and save tax payer´s money or throw corrupt officials from these offices. I am feeling outraged by my experience with this Registrar´s corrupt practices and they are known to all.

Let us get rid of such corrupt officials, sack them and throw them behind the bars. more

This is nothing new. At present corruption and favoritism exists at many places. If we are really interested in reducing corruption and favoritism, then those who believe in non-corrupt and ideal administration should act in whatever capacity they are in i.e. in Office , at home, in society etc. I know you will not be allowed to execute your functions properly. But atleast you have to make an efforts.

I find that almost everyone talks against corruption and favoritism when someone else is at the helm of affairs, but when the same person has to take decisions whether at home, or in Office/Society he forgets his principles. Hence corruption and favoritism doesn't stop but it only remains a talking point.

Those in government, in Offices, in Societies, at home are all Indians, may be Maharashtrians, may be Mumbaikar, may be our neighbor, may be from our family. Hence instead of looking towards them as third person, we have to look at us and start acting.

But once you start acting you will face many hurdles. Hence you have to get together who believe in non-corrupt and ideal administration. There will be differences but in democracy majority wins. Hence you have to meet people, talk to them and understand their view point.

What we are doing over here is meeting virtually. You can extent the same within your society and garner support within the society. If majority wants reforms then nobody can stop you. more  
Yes Mr.Angre, this is a fact and happening in presence of public including professionals like Lawyer. A office boy movement,within office and outside the office premises can be traced through CCTV cameras. But who cares?.....We need to do it. more  
I fully agree with Shri Angre. The registrar office looks like to be hand in glove with bad elements in the Societies. The bye laws are unclear on many subjects. We had a similar problem in our society. The registrar office in Raigad Bhawan sided with the Managing Committee members who lost vote of confidence in our society during AGM. They have even installed a deity in the society premise disregarding the sentiments of other members without any discussion . The MC misrepresented and twisted the facts to the Registrar by writing a letter to him on 10.10.2014. The registrar's office without going into the merits of the case replied to the Society on same day i,e 10.10.2014 itself to continue till further orders which is contrary to the guide lines issued by Commissioner co-op societies. The website of the Commissioner clearly states vide FAQ26 which states " Can an existing committee tenoler Resignation? What are measures in such situation? Website says. "such an application put before the general meeting for approval. Even after approving resignation by the General meeting, the charge of the office is entrusted to the previous MC till alternative arrangement is made or ad hoc committee is appointed. It is obligatory that important decisions like financial and policy matters should not be taken by such committee. The registrar's office has just taken opposite decision and allowed old MC to continue .The present Old MC is arbitrarily incurring new expenditures. more  
Situation become worse if society is grabed by local goons and corrupt members. Many times complaints are given to deputy registrar Panvel for several years,but for no results.By default meaning of is corrupt rusted & hopless. more  
We entirely agree and sympathize with Mr. Angre. We also had very bad experience. Administrator was appointed on our society viz. Shree Sai Usha Complex CHS Bhandup without any valid reason. The Administrator Mr. M.R. Gaikwad was retired employee of the department. He mismanaged the society and embezzled society funds. Enquiry was conducted and the administrator was found guilty. The auditor also remarked that amount should be refunded to society. However the registrar does not take any action. What is more , even the cost of enquiry was recovered from the society.
