    Hello Mr.Jagadish,

    Although even I am quite new on this issue, I can tell you for sure that generally all correspondences with the society are done ONLY with the 'Member' of that society.

    In case someone wants to depute someone on his behalf to he can do so by making him an "associate member", But then the associate member will be entitled ONLY to attend the society meetings on his behalf, no other rights will be given to him.

    @ RTI being applicable to Housing Societies: YES, it is applicable, our experienced members/staff from rtiindia.org community can guide you further on this

    Co-operatice societies are not directly covered. You can file RTI application to the Registrar of Co-operative Societies to get all information relating to your housing society which can be accessed by the RCS.

    Not all issues of cooperative housing society are covered by RTI. Before rushing to the Deputy/asst Registrar of the concerned society, make an application for information to the Society.The right of inspection is restricted to only members of the society to which they belong & not other houising society.Besides the content is also limited & not unbridlled. Thereafter if the Society does not yield to make an application to Dep. Registrar, but he is also obliged to furnish documents that are filed in office by the Society,as per the Statute, & as available with him as mandated by law & the law of preservation of public records.

    "The right of inspection is restricted to only members of the society to which they belong & not other houising society.Besides the content is also limited & not unbridlled."

    IF ANY issue prevail the inspection can be called by the member & then authorize /nominate stating not have knowledge or understanding eg. (account) SO ASSIGNING TO LOOK ON MY BEHALF may be allowed at the society office at scheduled time,
    limit to look in into is all the matter where in your contribution is made out of your payment made
