The Federation of Apartment Owner Association (FedAOA) has demanded the district administration to establish the office of Deputy Registrar in the district of Ghaziabad or Gautam Budh Nagar. The federation gave two reasons to validate their demand.
They said that the present office is located too far and they find it difficult to have proper coordination.
Currently, the issues related to registration, election and auditing of societies in Ghaziabad and Noida are addressed at the Office of Deputy Registrar Firms Societies and Chits which is situated in Meerut.
FedAOA President Alok Kumar said, “It took me one and a half year of time and around 60 visits to the Deputy Registrar’s office to get a single registration for the federation.”
He further said that the present process is very “exhausting.” He said that people have to visit twice even to get a true copy. “First you have to submit the charges for the copy, and, then, next day or a day later, you will receive the copy,” said Kumar.
The other reason which federation cited was the lack of coordination between the development authorities and the Office of Deputy Registrar.
“There are various issues pertaining to development where the consent of competent development authorities is needed. But, due to the lack of coordination, our files and requests keep moving between authorities and Deputy Registrar’s office,” alleged Kumar.
Kumar said that there will be better coordination between them if the Deputy Registrar’s office is set up in the same city where the development authority is situated.
In this regard, the federation had written a letter to Ritu Maheshwari, DM Ghaziabad. The request was further forwarded to State’s Chief Secretary (Finance).
Kumar stressed on the fact that the maximum number of group housing is developing in Gautam Buddh Nagar and Ghaziabad. It’s about time that government should set up the authority demanded by us in the public interest of people.
Rajiva Singh, a member of Noida Federation of Apartment Owners Association (NOFAA), agreed with FedAOA. He blamed the authorities for not having proper coordination. “Even for a single signature, we have to visit Meerut multiple times,” Singh said.
Singh said that NOFAA had also requested the authorities to establish the office of Deputy Registrar at Gautam Budh Nagar but their appeal was not forwarded to the higher authorities.
He also said that that currently, 200 AOAs are registered in Gautam Budh Nagar which is expected to increase to around 1,000 within 5 years. “The setting up of Deputy Registrar’s office would come as a great relief for upcoming AOAs in Gautam Budh Nagar and Ghaziabad,” Singh said.
Earlier, the Ghaziabad Development Authority (GDA) had written to the Principal Secretary (Finance) of the Uttar Pradesh government demanding a local registrar office for Ghaziabad and Gautam Budh Nagar.
