Can the-committee shall cut the electric or water facility connection temporarily till the default amount to be paid ? This condition is mentioned in the Bye-laws of the Association.

We are looking to form an association for the residents at our appartament.
Kindly provide us with the following info as we’ve not been able to get much clarity.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

1)what is the practical difference between Karnataka Societies Registration Act, 1960 and
The Karnataka Apartment Owners Act 1972

2)Is it mandatory to have 100% buy in from all the owners to register an association under
The Karnataka Apartment Owners Act 1972? If yes, is there ‘any’ way to get around this
as it would be very difficult to track all the owners as the Builder may not be very supportive.

3)When and at what stage(and for what purpose) would the builder have to be invovlved in the association

4)Can by laws be added in such a way that the “Karnataka Societies Registration Act, 1960” would ensure
the same conditions provided for by The Karnataka Apartment Owners Act 1972(for eg: The Karnataka Apartment Owners Act 1972
has mention of the maintence fee etc)

5)Any other relevant suggestion you may have
