    Housing Society Maintenance Charges


    A member of the housing society has been charged maintenance charges for 1700 sq ft area since new building (year 2000). The society had all the information on the flat area etc, including copies of Index II. The member paid up all maintenance charges promptly without any default over the 10 years.
    It was then realised in 2010 that the member should have paid on an area of 2100 sq ft. instead of 1700 sq ft. and the committee sent the member a letter stating that they had unanimously decided to charge the member the difference for all 10 years, without consulting the member or speaking to him at all in this regard. Is the committee within its rights to do so? What is the maximum term that the member must pay the difference for?

    Default Re: Housing Society Maintenance Charges


    Your query does not relate to RTI Act 2005 to which this portal is dedicated. Coop societies are not under RTI as per decision of Karnataka, Bombay and Gujarat High Courts.

    We guide members to access information from govt. by using this law. For your benefit, please do visit ALL ABOUT RTI box and success stories on home page of this portal.

    However, you may post your query at Big Helpers.

    RTI will be useful to member when matter is referred to Registrar of Coop Soc.

    I would suggest that if claim of society is genuine and it was through inadvertence that it did not claim correct amount of maintenance, the member should convince society to accept affordable monthly installment for arrears, without interest. If society is adamant, it will have to move RoCS for recovery, where member can plead for installments.
    It takes each of us to make difference for all of us.
