  2. In our CHS, in last 20 years, (1) No elections held as per ByeLaws (2) No AGMs Taken (3) No Audited accounts submitted. Present MC declared themselves as elected after a Chaotic SGB Meeting attended by Members and Non-Members alike ( without any pre-election procedure). As any action of this MC is considered as Null Ab Initiao, can this M.C. now apply to Dy.Registrar for fresh election ? WE have been advised (1) that any New MC made out of action of such Nu.Ab Initio MC is also considered NullAbInitio and (2) instead, We should Form a Provisional Committee in consultation with Dy.Registrar to carry out pre-Election procedure. Is it Correct ? What Sec. of MCS Act supports this ? Is such provisional committee empowered to add name of Proposed Associate Members on Share Certificate ( so that such members can vote ) ?

Please let me know.

  15. Treasurer of our society has resigned from her post and opted to be a managing committee memeber.
