    1. No
    2. You can ask the office bearers of your CGHS. If that doesn't work you can file RTI application in the office of RCS. They will get the information from CGHS and provide it to you.
    3. CGHS is governed by the provisions of Cooperative Societies Act. All members have a right to vote. Office bearers are responsible for administration. Detailed provisions are available in the society's bye-laws.

    I think CGHS will take shelter under Karnatakas High court ruling stating they are not governed by RTI. Below is the small news article on this issue
