With a view to ensure transparency in societies seeking to undertake redevelopment projects, the State Co-Operative Department has, for the first time, issued mandatory redevelopment guidelines under section 79 (A) of the Maharashtra Co-operatives act, 1960 for cooperative housing society to follow.
The subject of redevelopment has assumed great significance because in Mumbai, majority of the buildings owned by the Co-Operative Housing Societies are quite old and in a dilapidated state. In case of redevelopment of old buildings which have completed 30 years or are beyond repairs as certified by the Govt. approved architect on the basis of his “Structural Audit”. The structural audit report will determine whether the building should go in for redevelopment or for major repairs. In the absence of the technical report it would not be legally permissible to pass a resolution in the general body meeting.
Complaints of deficiency in executing redevelopment agreements have also started going to Consumer forum are also on the increase and Consumer Forums are taking serious notes with a dent in builder lobby’s highhandedness.
A recent Consumer Forum order reportedly directed a construction company to pay Rs 11.80 lakh as compensation to a 13 member cooperative housing society in Bhandup an Eastern sub-urban locality.
The forum held the concerned builder guilty of deficiency in service for failing to provide amenities that were promised on the redeveloped property.
