The president and the secretary of the apartment owners’ association (AOA) of Mahagun Moderne, a high-rise in Noida Sector 78, have been summoned for expelling four office-bearers following their objections against commercial events being allowed to take place within the society premises.
The said members, expelled last week, were forcefully removed from the executive committee after they moved registrar cooperative society and appellate authority to challenge the decision made by the AOA.
On receiving complaints from the expelled members – Santosh Mathur, Indrani Mukherjee, Rahul Sagar Sahay and HD Gupta - the district assistant registrar, cooperative society ordered them to put forth their views within three days before the appellate authority.
“We received a complaint from the officer-bearers stating they were forcefully removed from the executive committee which is a violation according to society’s bye-laws. Therefore, the respondents have been asked to present their side before us by April 29, i.e. Monday. Besides, they have to explain what procedures were followed while removing them from the panel,” the authority said.
Meanwhile, the AOA cited that expelled four members' attendance percentage was less than that of other five office-bearers. This is the reason they were removed from the executive committee.
Speaking to City Spidey about the issue, one of the complainants Sahay said, “We are against commercial events taking place in the society. Even residents in large numbers have protested against it. But rather than providing relief to the residents from these events, the AOA went against the office-bearers and removed us from the executive panel. We have challenged this decision."
