OUR SOCIETY IS REGISTERED VIDE REGD.NO.BOM/HSG/2846/OF 1971.
IN PAST WE HAVE GOT APPROVAL FOR CHANGE OF SOCIETY NAME, ACCOUNT OPENING IN NATIONALISED BANK,AND AMENDMENT IN BYE LAW NO.72 FOR CHARGING INTEREST TO DEFAULT MEMBERS. NOW A DAYS,INVESTORS BUY FLATS AND GIVE ON HEAVY RENT THEREBY MAKING LOT OF MONEY.
“BYE LAW NO. 43(b)(iii) ALLOWS SOCIETY TO CHARGE ONLY 10% OF MAINTANENCE BILL.” THIS IS VERY OLD BYE LAW(1960) AND HAS NOT BEEN AMENDED.
THERE ARE FEW FLATS GIVEN ON RENTAL AT HIGH AMOUNT.
LAST YEAR IN AGM WE HAVE PASSED A RESOLUTION TO CHARGE FLAT Rs.1000
WE NEED YOUR ADVICE ON WHETHER WE CAN GET APPROVAL FROM REGISTRAR FOR CHARGING FLAT Rs.1000/- PER MONTH.
YOUR IMMEDIATE COMMENTS WILL BE HIGHLY APPRECIATED.

The NOC was a controversial issue in the past. Now after the Bombay HC upheld the validity of the Maharashtra State Government Order SAGRUYO-1094/15165/ case No. 317/14-C /Mantralaya Extension, Mumbai- 32 dated 1st August 2001.
Main Order conditions relevant to your questions are:
- Non-Occupancy charges shall not exceed 10% of service charges. (excluding
Municipal Corporation/ Municipal Taxes).
- All the housing Societies in the state shall take action to make proper
amendment as above their bye-laws/ sub-rules. However, even if no amendment as
above has been made, non occupancy charges should not be charged more than maximum limit mentioned in this order from the date of this order.
This is a mandatory order and the Registrar has no say in the matter.
