Earlier associate member was person whose name stood second in share cert and could stand for election if he gave form 10A.
As per current definition per Maha ordinance amendment of March 2019, associate member is one whose name does not stand on the share cert.
My query is that who was earlier an associate member is now a joint member. So having given form 10A earlier to the society as associate member for being part of the managing committee, is that form 10A still valid since she is now defined as joint not associate member? because the spouse being the main member having signed form 10A for his wife to be on the manco. is not allowed to attend and participate in any general body meetings and since he has raised valid questions there is a good chance that the rest of the manco may not allow him to attend and participate in the upcoming AGM. Is this legitimate / valid? And what steps can they take to counter or preempt this?

The fact is there is an Associate member. Circumstances under which Associate member ceases as such are listed out in the registered bye-laws of the C H S: Bye-law No 58 reads as under.
“The person shall cease to be the associate member of the society, when the original member ceases to be the member of the society or on the death of the associate member or on the acceptance of the resignation of the associate member by the Committee.”
In the absence of information status quo is assumed and the name of the Associate member continues on the records of the Society. Rules which enable implementation of lgal provisions having been not yet announced, the Status quo remains valid in law.
