CAN HOUSING SOCIETIES FRAME THEIR OWN LAWS?

 

If legal experts are to be believed, the housing societies can indeed frame their own laws. There are broad guidelines, or bye-laws, that every housing society adopts when it is registered.

These rules and regulations govern the day-to-day functioning of the housing society and are crucial to its smooth running.

"These guidelines are typically framed under the Co-operative Societies Act, which is a Central Act. This provides specific guidelines for a society to be registered with the municipal corporations, its governance structures, common area maintenance rights, dos & don'ts, accounting practices and various other covenants related to leasing/ purchasing a house within the society.

The Act also offers a degree of flexibility to societies to add regulations of their own.For instance, if the housing society has made a rule for tenants, according to which they cannot park their vehicles in the parking slots allotted to members, then they have every right to enforce it.
