        All we have to make efforts to collect due from all defaulters including Shiv Shankar. After all we would like that all residents live with harmony and maintain respect of each other.

        There is a management theory called 80/20 rule. In our context, it elaborates that 20 % people work hard to provide facilities to balance 80% people. Or in other words, 80% people enjoy on the hard work of 20% people. Now it is up to an individual, whether he wants to be in 80% or in 20%.

      Clarification is requested. A RWA not registered and convenes AGB without any agenda except Election for EC Members. Pressing aside the norms of election procedure – such as giving 21 days notice, appointing election officer, preparing elegible voters list, calling for nomination, srcutinisation,withdrawal, preparing ballet papper for secret election. Gathered a group of family members of about 50-subscribed and unsubscribed and elected 25 EC members out of the 50 gathered. when There is list of 115 Eligible members, is it proper to elect EC members without following any rules of association. They say, as this was an unregistered assocition basic norms need not be followed. Is this opinion right?

      When a association is unregistered and not following the basic principles, can other members for a group and register the association in the same name. kindly clarify

      • Rajesh Kr. Sinha said

        If the society is not registered, the provisions under the SA 1860 will not be applicable. Since there are 115 desirous residents,the left over 65 residents being majority may form a RWA and apply for registration with the Registrar of Societies and can force the smaller group to fall in line. This has happened in our society also and now we have only one RWA.Once the society is registered, it will have to abide by the rules & regulation and can not be a family matter.

    If a welfare association is misusing its powers to favour one of its members, and to save his encroachment, recomend road blocage, what should be done?

    • Y R Wadhwa said

      Dear Vinesh

      Its a common feature that the office bearers of the RWA start their Property Business in the Society/ colony and then favour/ shelters their customers who indulge in unauthorised construction or encroachments.

      You may directly report/complaint to MCD at centralised phone no. 1266 with the office of Commissioner MCD and receive the complaint no.

      Once the complaint no is allotted the complaint can not be dropped irrespective of the influence of RWA.

      It may take time for MCD to take action in the matter. You can keep live the case by regularly asking MCD to inform you the status under RTI Act by submitting application along with fees of Rs. 10/- for each such request.

    At my place RWA is made by people who don’t have any work and trying to make RWA as there political ground. They have put locks, gate and guards as per there own personal convenience rather for the convenience of society. I don’t think meeting are happening, effected people are not even consulted before making a any decision.

    I have been paying all the due charges to them, but now it has become frustrating when my 85 years old grandma has to walk extra 350 m when there is a gate just 10 Meters away from my home.

    What kind of legal action can be taken against them? How can I challenge the decision of a RWA, which are made with out any consideration? I had tried to talk things out, but it didn’t worked.

    Hi,
    Excellent blog, keep it up.

    The Residents’ welfare association of my apartment keeps coming up with new rules that differentiate based on whether one is a tenant or an owner. The latest one is that owners are allowed to park two cars inside while tenants are allowed only one. Everyone pays the same amount of charges for facilities and to me this appears vague. Today, its about parking slots, tomorrow, it could be about use of other facilities.

    So my question is:

    Is this a standard/common practices in other apartments?
    Also, is it normal to not allow tenants to be part of voting members of RWA?

    Thanks for your advice.

  62. Dear Sir,
    I would like to know the precedure, if an elected president of a registered RWA resigns from his post. Will there be resh lections or the complete post, or only for the post of President.

    I am residing in govt. quarter at Vasant Kunj, New Delhi. There are several other PSUs having staff quarters in the same pocket. We have a Resident Welfare Society registered as Social Welfare Society with the Registrar of Societies, Kashmiri Gate, Delhi.Few private owner’s flat are also there in the pocket. It may be clarified whether there can be separate Registered society for the PSUs staff quarters and private owner. Further, if the private owners avoid becoming member of the common welfare society, can they enjoy security and other developmental facilities at the cost of contribution received from members of PSUs staff quarters.

    What action the RWA can take if the resident did not pay the subscription to the society. Whether RWA can stop illegal construction in the DDA flats (Lease hold). Our society has adopted a resolution by 17:6 votes in its GB meeting to prohibit illegal construction in the DDA flats of our pocket. Is this a correct step?

    Is there any directory of this Apex body?
    How can one get a copy of this Directory?

Presently in our area all the street lights have been replaced with CFL bulbs and with this every day is dewali. Kindly tell me what more can I do for my Association.

  75. karuthapandiyan said

    Clarification is requested. A RWA not registered and convens an AGB without any agenda except Election for EC Members. Pressing aside the norms of election procedure – such as giving 21 days notice, appointing election officer, preparing elegible voters list, calling for nomination, scrutinisation,withdrawal, preparing ballet papper for secret election.
    Gathered a group of family members of about 50-subscribed and unsubscribed and elected 25 EC members out of the 50 gathered. when there is list of 115 Eligible members, is it proper to elect EC members without following any rules of association?

    They say, an unregistered assocition need not follow any basic norms. Is this opinion right?

    When a association is unregistered and not following the basic principles, can other members form a group and register the association in the same name? kindly clarify.

  76. Rajesh Kr. Sinha said

    Hello,
    A general election for governing body of our society held recently through secret ballot poll. The sitting President also contested the election and lost. Since he was occupying the post from the beginning due to poor attendance by the resident at the time of voting and mostly office bearers were being elected on voice vote, the President felt bad and started provoking residents against election process and frozen the society bank account as he being one of the signatory. However, Secretary and Treasurer has accepted the verdict and requested to the bank for change of signatory. But the bank has not accepted the resolution due to the request made by the defeated President in the capacity of Signatory. The new body finds difficulty in paying the wages to the wage earner enrolled in the society.
    Let me advice what action should be taken against ex President and how to get the bank account reopened.

    an association is a formation of the group for increase the strength of individuals. residents association is nothing different, a congregation of the people who stays in one place. Their objective is and should be the self-protection from every natural enemies. This has never reflected anywhere in the Law. The people of one place should meet and know one another is important so that intruders and strangers would never mislead individuals of the respective area. Every retrogression and every enemy of any person, family, country or the world is born inside by the contact from outside. Hence a residents association should give importance to this congregation, but never based on the wealth or position or other social status. Giving importance to the subscription in the form of coinage (money) and question on the income and expenditure is the main evil that detracts the individuals. Besides the coinage system, the growing transportation and communication facilities helps the offenders and enemies to escape quickly. Hence, these three evils are to be controlled, i.e., coinage subscriptions, highly accessible roads and increased communication facilities. It recalls the old proverb ” Even if nectar, more than limit would be the poison “. Those who has knowledge would understand the correct meaning and explanation of this since even our nation and our world is being polluted in the name of growth and development. So let our Residents Association to take initiative to limit these developments.

    If any resident welfare society increases the maintenance charge without giving convincing expenditure detail then as a member
    am i liable to pay those charges?
    Can I go to court? If yes which court?
    Can they disconnect my electricity and water as mentioned in sales deed?

    Pl provide some reference cases and their numbers in support of these situations

  94. Rajeev said

    Once association formed then can I ask for all residents’ detail (generfally refused saying confidential, privacy or security reasons)?
    Can I get all govt leters pertaining to building like
    fire cerftificate,
    municipal certificate,
    layout plan and drawings of building from builder,
    plan and design documents of rain water harvesting,
    society electrical and water layout plan etc.

    If yes whom should I approach and if rejected then what is the solution?

      if you dont want to pay the subscription charges then you have to write to the association that you are cancelling your membership of the association for xyz reason and therefore will not be paying the charges in future. All charges till the date of writing this letter must be paid.

    Sushil Samvedi,

    Dear Sir,
    Our Resident Welfare Association is registered body under the Registrar of Societies Act 1860. In the year 2007 the then management committee suddenly without amending the constitution as per the laid procedures in Registrar of Societies Act 1860. Section 12, and without follwoing the rules clearly stipulated in our RWA constitution, reduced the number of members and election was declared. Inspite of our objections to Returning Officer (which was supposed to be appointed by General Body, but illegally choosen by management committee) in writing, the election was held unconstitutionaly. Secondly, on our written complaint to Registrar and request to interven, the Registrar on feb 2008 confirmed that no amendments have been made in the constitution with regard to reduce the number of elected representative and advised us to go to civil court of the jurisdiction the area comes under. Thus, we stopped paying them, but never filed the court case. Resultantly, RWA threaten us with legal action. Later on in the year 2008, they declared us Non-Member of RWA. In the year 2011, RWA issued notice to us for clearing the outstanding dues as subscription for last four years. We, in reply to their notice, we asked then for amended copy of valid constitution and then only we start paying subscription. Now, they have filed a Civil Suit for recovery of maintenance charges.
    Kindly advise,
    1) whether I can also file the civil suit agianst the RWA to be delcared as an illegal RWA?
    2) Also, pls let us know under which rule or act of Consitution, they can not force us to become the member of RWA.

  110. hi
    can you guide me when a RWA society can ask tenant to vacate the premises
    We have been leaving in a hosuing society for last 4 yrs in same flat and suddenly we receive unilateral notice from president to vacate the flat within 15 days w/out any information to our landlords.
    the basis of notice was that we were conducting yoga classes (commercial) activity in the flat (only for children that to on request of society members)
    But same was well known to everyone and no such prior notice was given.
    Understand yoga should fall under medical practice as same is helping one to improve on ones health.
    All our dues to society are always been cleared in time, then do RWA still reserve right to take such unilateral action w/out even informing our landlord.

    • Ir said

      They can’t ask you to vacate. They can approach you through the landlord only.

    Sir,

    My apartment complex has 1150 plus apartments out of which about 570 apartments have already been handed over i.e. possession has been given. Rest of the apartments are either in finishing stages or still in construction stage. Some of them are yet not sold by the builder.

    Out of the 570 apartments already handed over, about 320 apartments are inhabited. More than 80% of inhabited apartments have tenants living there. Remaining 60-70 apartments have the owners themselves residing here.

    About 25-30 of these resident owners have established a core group and they are in process of forming a RWA claiming to be representatives of the whole 320 inhabited apartments.

    Can they form a RWA this way. Will it be democratic and legal? Will it amount to hijacking of the RWA formation process by a few. The builder runs the maintenance in the complex.

    Any advice will be appreciated.

    Thanks and regards.

    Sir, I am a resident of Mayur Vihar Phase-1, Pocket-5. Here RWA members have closed two gates of colony’s Central Park without consulting any of the colony residents. It has caused problems for both the children (who hop gates & often injure themselves ) & the residents who have to walk extra, to reach in the park. When we residents went to the RWA members to talk about the issue they misbehaved us & said that MCD has given the ruling to close the multiple gates of Park & they would’t open them even if the residents want those gate to be opened.

    What kind of legal action can be taken against them? has MCD given any such ruling? How can I challenge the decision of a RWA, which are made with out any consideration? I had tried to talk things out, but it didn’t work.

    • Satish Jain said

      As per my knowledge, there is no provision under any Act under which formation of Association/RWA by the resident is complusary for an Society/Flat Owners etc.Accordingly, since formation of Association/RWA is not mandatory,how to become member of the Association/RWA can be complusary.RWA is a volunter body which is managed by volunteers without any fee etc.There are following three type of services available to the residents
      1.Services provided by the local bodies such as roads,park,street lights etc.by the MCD/DDA.RWAs can make efforts to improve quality of these services but cannot decide to stop to non members to avail these services.
      2.Services provided by the Associations/RWAs such as welfare activities such as cultural prog. deposit of bills etc. and these facilities can be restricted to members only.
      3.These services are paid services such as Supply of Electricity/water,Cleaning of cars,Drycleaning of cloths etc. and Association/RWAs can not stop non members not to avail these services.
      I furthe feel that in case Association/RWAs members try to threten to stop paid services or services provided by Local Bodies, will be deemed to be infringment of fundamental rights and legal action/FIR can be called/lodged against members intrfering for the same.
      Kindly communicate whether my views are on the right path to share/perculate futher.

      • M.K.Pandey said

        In case of newly constructed DDA flats, it is mandatory for all flat owners to become members of RWA, ( You may see brochure of your flats, if applicable there). But ,generally formation of RWA activity comes later after people start communicating with each other and feel necessity of formation of RWA. Again only a small fraction of people take this lead.
        The interesting fact about RWA is that people, in general, avoid participating in meetings organized by RWA but expect too much from them. As stated in various communication here that RWA is a voluntary organisation, the best way to get its output is to volunteer yourself for the social cause, take part in the developmental activities and then comment.
        But now, Delhi govt. has a mediation center where counselling is done by experienced team members for small disputes. You can refer the matter there & hopefully result will be positive.

        Dear Sir,
        We were complaining our RWA in verbal communication for water supply problem & deployment of Security guard when the gate near to our opens (Usually RWA president keeps the security guard near to his house only). They were just letting it go for past one year & then we stopped paying the monthly charges with verbal intimation. Now it is been six months we stopped it. Now we have received a notice from them, stating that they will take a legal action.
        Also in the notice it is mentioned that they have installed the gates for our colony security & without information of any charges imposed on us, stating that they have mentioned it in core committee meeting, then how come we can know about that.
        Am I compelled to continue my membership or I can leave it.
        Regards,
        Bipin

  158. Sanjeev Hariharan said

    Sir. I wish to understand a few things w.r.t functioning of RWAs in New Delhi.
    1. Can RWAs penalise members who have/are defaulting in payment of Annual Society / Membership Charges and/or initiate legal action against them for no-payment of dues / outsstanding arrears? Are these implementable under provisions of any law? If so, may kindly advise?
    2. Do provisions of The Delhi Apartment Owners Act 1986 apply to all RWAs in New Delhi? Under this law is it mandatory for RWAs to issue Share Certificates to all members?
    3. The model constitution suggested does not mention the above powers / fucntions of the RWA.
    4. Do RWAs have the right to restrict access / entry for non-residents or is it mandatory for them to provide right of way since roads within most pockets are maintained by MCD?
    5. Is it mandatory for the RWA to hold AGMs 3 times a year? Kindly suggest / advice.
    Regards, Sanjeev

    hi pl share me the rwa officer address & email id where i can get the some copies about rules & regulation for the rwa

  162. V Kumar said

    Do you have any Information/Court ruling in the following context -

    Authority that can enforce rules and regulations framed by general body of a registered DDA flat owners RWA: If such an RWA wants to enforce its rules and regulations and some adamant resident continues to act against social sense despite RWA advise and pressure, followed thereafter by advise from Police (senior level), what enforcement course or route is available to the RWA. Police excuses itself saying that it can only TRY to suggest sense but since the case is of civil nature and not criminal (or has not taken a criminal turn YET) it is beyond enforcement by Delhi Police.

    Before going to the court, is there any other authority that resolves civil disputes falling under RWA rules and regulations ?

    What are the government guidelines? Any answers that can help DDA flat owners RWAs?
