Agitated over the Deputy Registrar's office being situation at a long distance, the members of Federation of Apartments Owners Association (FedAOA) demanded additional office in Ghaziabad. Currently, people need to travel a long distance to reach Deputy Registrar's office in Meerut.
President of FedAOA, Amrish Garg stressed upon the need to set up an additional office in Ghaziabad.
He said, “The city has close to 500 housing societies. Residents frequently travel to Meerut-based office with issues related to management and elections in the society. The Deputy Registrar should open its camp office in any of the societies in Ghaziabad. It will bring a lot of relief to the residents. They will be able to save their time and money.”
The other reason that this federation gave was the lack of coordination between the development authorities and office of Deputy Registrar.
“There are various issues related to development where the consent of competent development authorities are required. But due to the lack of coordination, our files and requests keep on hanging between authorities and deputy registrar’s office” said Alok Kumar, ex president and founder of FedAOA.
Kumar further 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.
“The Deputy Registrar just have to take out a day in a week and come to Ghaziabad to listen our grievances. There are times when we go to his office and the concerned officers are not available. It is wastage of our time and effort. The camp office would solve these pertinent issues," added Garg.
Garg said that he along with members of the federation would go to the office of Deputy Registrar to press this demand soon.
Currently, the issues related to registration, election and auditing of societies are addressed at the Office of Deputy Registrar Firms Societies and Chits, situated in Meerut.
