Public grievances of members of co-operative societies

With increase in number of societies and sharing properties, these are things residents should work upon before moving to new society

Society Focus- One stop for all Society/Complex related issues.

1) CO-OPERATION AMONG MEMBERS: The members of the co-operative societies are shy of pin pointing the problems they face in a co-operative societies. Since all the members are required to live together in the society, they have to do face saving while inter acting for society matters. Most of the members are not able to devote their personal time for the society welfare matters, therefore they support those members who are devoting their valuable time for the other members of the society.

2) NON-CO-OPERATION AMONG MEMBERS: The members of the co-operative societies are also having few members who are not the followers of others, they wish to give their suggestions rather constructive suggestions. But due to adamant attitude of members of the Managing Committee, they start opposing what ever is felt wrong by them. When such members become conscience of mis-deeds of the present managing committee, they stop co-operating with the members of the managing committee.

3) DUTY OF THE MANAGING COMMITTEE: The managing committee is duty bound to explain their stand and explain the bye laws, the act and the rules under which they have to work and in all cases the managing committee has to see that interest of all the member and resolve the grievances of all the members.

4) REQUESTS & COMPLAINTS TURN INTO GRIEVANCES: Initially the members put up their application to the managing committee for their requirement. If the members are not provided what they need and there is no logic provided by the managing committee of not satisfying their need, the members complain to the President or Secretary as complaint. When the managing committee still do not listen to the complaints or do nothing to resolve the complaint, it turns into grievances of the members.

5) THE MEMBERS PUT THEIR GRIEVANCES TO REGISTRAR: When the members are dis-satisfied with the reply or non- reply or non-action of the managing committee, they turn their face towards the legal channels available to them. The most immediate channel is the Registrar of Co-operative societies. Therefore the members complain to the Registrar of co-operative societies by writing their grievances against their managing committee.

6) WORKING STYLE OF REGISTRAR: The number of co-operative societies have increased many fold since the allotment of lands in Dwarka, but the staff strength of the Registrar of Co-operative Societies has remained the same for the last many years. Therefore, there was no other option available with the Registrar of co-operative societies except changing their style of working.

Major change in the working style has been to leave the internal administration of the society to its elected managing committee. If a members complains against the managing committee, the attitude of the Registrar shall be to support the decisions or actions of the present or past managing committee itself. Such a style has in fact reduced the burden of work on the officials of the Registrar of co-operative societies but the members have been feeling neglected. Therefore, there is increase in the arbitration cases coming up in the office of the Registrar of Co-operative Societies.
