Corruption in RWAs - Key Issues

1. Many Builders insist that they will handle the RWA themselves to ensure they don't have consumer issues later for bad construction quality/malpractices
2. Accounts of many RWAs are not managed transparently
3. Most RWAs don’t have a process to award contracts
4. Many RWA Estate Managers, Supervisors and even a few executive members accept kickbacks from the selected vendors
5. The funds allocated to RWAs are used for personal gains
6. Many RWA Estate Manager, Supervisors accept commission for small vendors like milkman, newspaper man etc. to allow them to operate in the area
7. RWA Executive members do not want residents connected in a circle/group as that brings transparency
8. Politicians bribe some of the RWAs to work as their vote agents
9. Some RWA executives make the environment so political that residents who are professionals walk away from RWA management. more

Builder should have no role in running RWA directly or indirectly It should be an elected body. Again builder should not influence the election. Management of the compound can
be outsourced, if it a big compound to bring professionalism. The quotes by a transparent system should be called to outsource. The audit of RWA should be governed by a different law, which looks more into system and procedures to call quotes, making sure that hiring of people has a process and people do exist,if RWA is paying for them and full proprietary kind of audit should be conducted. This is quite a detailed subject to be covered in a note but honesty and accountability has to be there. more  
The place where I live is a colony with a small park and about a 100 kotis..we are asked to pay Rs.500/- per month as maintenance but we get nothing in return..not even the garbage guy comes every day, the streets are not cleaned every day, only two gates where the RWA president and chairman lives is painted and in good condition, the rest of the gates are broken. We dont know where the money goes. I got to know such colonies pay just Rs.100/- or Rs.200/- as maintenance, we dont know why we have to pay so much. Is there not some specific amount for monthly maintenance charges by RWAs for colonies ?? more  
Registrars are ill equipped and not serious about cooperative housing societies hence a different elected body of CHS area wise should be made compulsory to look in to complaints and forward to registrar for further quick action.I have given this suggestion earlier also which is very practical. more  
Adding More....

1. Awarding contract to family member.
2. Not giving chance to young minds (not accept their proposal).
3. Most of the time they are biased by builders.
4. commission while appointing executive like guards, Gardner, electrician plumber office bearer etc.
5. Tacking commission while purchasing goods and services etc. more  
Where accountability is not insisted upon, corruption springs out, which flourishes like cancer, dooming the society.Every action if made strict analysis, none will dare to act also.A balanced discretionary power be vested with authorities.BEND , NOT BREAK , THE SYSTEM. more
