SDM tables report on BSF society
:bab (59):BSF Cooperative Group Housing Society
GURGAON: The sub-divisional magistrate (south) has submitted a detailed report on the irregularities in the BSF Cooperative Group Housing Society in Gwal Pahari. The 1,300-page report highlights the irregularities such as misappropriation of funds which were earlier raised by the society members.
The SDM (south), Manoj Yadav, said that prime facie he has detected many violations of norms such as the officials of the cooperative societies department allegedly working in collusion with builders.
He alleged that the expensive land of BSF CGHS has been sold of illegally to GTM builders and gross irregularities like not depositing the membership fee into the society's accounts, constructing more flats than allowed, selling of common area for car parking, illegal selling of space for shopping complex, among others.
"The builder has not constructed the promised community centre and the flats for economically weaker section (EWS). The builder has also violated the norms by building 11 towers instead of permitted seven towers, printing fake letter pads of the society and non-treatment of sewage..." said the SDM.
The founder members of this society had alleged that management of the society has been acting against the guidelines, in gross violation of Co-operative Societies Act, embezzlement of society money and fraudulent sale of the society property, among several other issues.
The chief parliamentary secretary has ordered the constitution of a committee under the chairmanship of the SDM for prompt action against the irregularities and said that after an in-depth inquiry into the case of government officials who are found to be involved, the list will be sent to the vigilance bureau. "We are relieved that our struggle has not gone in vain. We await the committee's constitution and the action which hopefully will be initiated," said a former president of the society, Raj Singh Phogat.
TOI had reported earlier about the issue of close to 19 flats in the society being sold to non-society members. Members had also highlighted that since October 2003, there has never been any Annual General Meeting, mandatory under the Haryana Co-operative Societies Act, 1984. Failing this, the registrar, CGHS is supposed to call for the meeting. :bab (45):CommentQuote0Flag
