A high-level committee formed by the Delhi government to examine the issue of verification of membership in Cooperative Group Housing Societies in the Capital has recommended a number of measures to bring in more transparency and better management in the societies.
The Mathur committee, headed by former chief secretary KK Mathur, has recommended that those members of the managing committee who were part of the self draw of lots, would not be able to contest society elections anymore.
In case of societies in which chargesheets have been filed by CBI, the committee has, without giving any further recommendations, asked the Delhi government to implement the directions of the Hon'ble High Court. It also said that the onus of verifying members' identities should rest with the Registrar of Cooperative Societies.
Mathur presented the report to chief secretary PK Tripathy on Saturday. Allotment of flats have come under scanner from the CBI suspecting foulplay. Many allotments are still entangled in court cases.
