    Default Judgemnts,Rulings related to RTI in cooperative societies


    Hi Guys,

    I am looking for some judgments, Rulings either by CIC or High Courts or even Supreme Court which made it easy to get information from a cooperative society (Specially Cooperative Housing Society).
    I know I can use 2f of RTi act to achieve some limited information from the governing body related to the Cooperative Society but I want that I should get the information directly from Cooperative society which is not possible under current RTI Act. The governing body shows their helplessness in this regard pretending they can't do anything else if society refuse to provide info.
    So please share some info related to it as I am very much disappointed by the process and harassment by Cooperative Housing society.

    There is no possibility of getting information from coop soc directly under RTI, if it is not a public authority. However, you may study coop laws of your state and rules made therein which give certain rights to members of a coop society.
    It takes each of us to make difference for all of us.

    That particular judgment is only for cooperative societies registered under the Karnataka Cooperative Societies Act.

    You are in Delhi, where there will be a different act for cooperative societies.

    I want to know whether I can quote this as a reference or not.
    Also as per my understanding the judgment is related to RTI Act and not to directly related to Karnatka cooperative societies.
    The appeal filed was against the CIC orders not against the Cooperative societies. May be I am wrong but that's the reason I am here to seek some guidance.

    The "writ" of the Karnataka High Court does not run in Delhi.

    I am not a legal expert but the reasoning in that judgment is based on the contents of the Karnataka Cooperative Societies Act.
    That is why I suggested you read the contents of the Delhi Cooperative Societies Act - if there is one.
