    1. Can you please read the threads with the tag "cooperative societies":

    2. You can file a RTI Application with the PIO in the office of the relevant Registrar of Cooperative Societies and he can get the information for you from the cooperative society.

    3. Since you are going to file the RTI Application to a Public Authority in Gujarat, the RTI Rules for Gujarat will be applicable. Details of the Rules, Fees, etc..are available at:

    Co operative Societies of Delhi come under RTI Act,05. But it is not clear whether all Cooperative Societies of India come under RTI Act or not. It was mentioned in one earlier message that High Court had stayed the order of CIC in this regard; but latest position in this respect is not known to me. If any body can provide latest development and or HC's order wrt the point raised.

    RTI Act is applicable to the Registrar of the co operative societies only;co operative banks also come under the name of co operative would not get any information directly from any co operative society as there is a stay by the State High Court whether the co operative societies come under the head ' public authority'.I am also from Gujarat.

    Re: Co-operative housing society

    The RTI act is not appplicable to the Cooperative hosuing societies as they are not public authorities within the meaning of the said act. As a member, one can surely ask for info. from the management which is sure to ignore the intruding requests,but it is necessary to apply first & to follow this procedure. Thereafter 30 days down the line the aggreieved member can raise his grievance with the Dy/Asst registrar of one's ward having jurisdiction, who is dutybound to issue necessary orders to the Society for Information
