The district magistrate’s office set the ball rolling for AOA elections at Gaur Valerio, a residential society in Ahinsa Khand 2, Indirapuram. Atul Kumar, additional district magistrate (ADM) — who has been appointed as the election officer — directed the president of the now defunct AOA to publish the resident voter list.
The list of eligible voters needs to be published, so elections can be conducted according to the by-laws of the UP Apartment Act, 2010. In the notice issued to the AOA, the ADM has also directed the president to hold a general meeting of residents on August 20.
The deputy registrar of Ghaziabad had written to the district magistrate, requesting him to appoint a subordinate officer as the election officer and pass orders for fresh elections in Gaur Valerio a few weeks back.
The initiative came in the wake of a complaint made by Rajeev Munshi, a resident of Gaur Valerio, to the deputy registrar about the society not having a proper AOA body since 2014.
