The district registrar firm and societies directed the management of Mayfield Garden Residents Welfare Society, J Block, to hand over the charge of the association to the appointed administrator within 7 days failing which necessary action shall be initiated under the provisions of HRRS Act/Rules, 2012.
This came after Mahadev Sharma, the appointed administrator, wrote a letter on Tuesday to the district registrar requesting him to file a criminal case against ex-office bearers of the association under various sections of CRPC. Mahadev Sharma was appointed the administrator by the district registrar on May 22, 2018 to manage the affairs of the society.
In his letter, he complained against the ex-office bearers of the association for not handing over the record of the society to the administrator. He said, "The society has its saving bank with the Axis Bank in sector 46 and Yes Bank in sector 47 and as an administrator I have collected the bank statement from both the banks and found that the saving account with Yes Bank was opened on 31.07.2018 after the appointment of the administrator."
He further added that the ex-office bearers have transfered the amount of Rs. 5 lakh on 29.03.2019 from Axis bank to Yes bank. As per the bank statement of Yes Bank from 31.07.2018 to 08.07.2019 an amount of Rs. 37,21,025 has been withdrawn by the ex-officer bearers for which they are not authorized to do so. They also withdrew an amount of Rs. 8,91,774 from Axis Bank from 30.09.2018 to 31.03.2019.
He also said that the ex-office bearers have not handed over the records to the administrator after three show-cause notices were served to them.
Some residents have accused the RWA of embezzlement of funds. Satpal Thakran, a resident of J Block Mayfield Garden said, " We wrote a letter to Haryana CM, Manohar Lal Khattar, seeking his intervention on the matter.We have filed a complaint against the ex-office bearers of the association and Yes Bank manager for misappropriation of funds, forgery, hatching a criminal conspiracy and contempt of High court. The election itself was a fraud and despite completion of tenure, they are not handing over the charges and records to the appointed administrator which is a violation of law."
