                                             Trivandrum, 6-1-1983


Sub:   Nomination to the Committee of the Co-operative Society under section 31 of the Act-Instructions issued.

It has come to the notice of the Registrar that some of the Joint Registrars have issued orders nominating individuals to the committee of Primary societies under the provisions contained in Section  31 of the Act.  Such nominations will not be in order.  In the Registrar’s Circular No. 9/75 of 24-1-1975 the Deputy Registrars were informed that nomination to the committee of a co-op: society coming under the administrative control of a Deputy Registrar shall be made by himself in accordance with law.  These instructions will not be taken to mean that the nomination under section 31 can also be done by the Joint Registrars.  Appointment of nominees of Government under section 31 shall be made, in the case of Apex societies by the Government and in the case of other societies by the Registrar under Rule 37 of the Rules.  The powers conferred on the Registrar under this Rule have not been delegated to the Joint Registrars.  Therefore, nomination under section 31 can be done only by the Government/Registrar.
Nomination under Section 31 is not normally done to the committees of Primary Societies.  The bye-laws of the Primary Societies provide for nomination under Section 28.  The Joint Registrars are competent to nominate persons to the committee of Primary Societies under section 28.  In case where nomination under section 31 becomes necessary under special circumstances, the Joint Registrars, shall forward a panel of names to the Registrar after appropriate enquiry about the qualification of the persons suggested to be a member of the committee of a society.
The receipt of the Circular may be acknowledged.

Sub:   Co-opertive Societies Rules 1969 Rule 44 (1) (c) (i) and (ii) - Disqualification when attracted-Defaulter Member remitted the dues to the Society before action is intimated.

In Thankappan V., Deputy Registrar, Alleppey (1985 KLT 68) it has been held by the High Court a member who has become a defaulter, will incur disqualification and consequent cessation of membership even if he had paid up the accounts in default and thereby had ceased to be a defaulted, before the proceedings under clause (1) (c) of rule 44 are initiated against him.  The High Court has not accepted the contention that the disqualification would be attracted only if at the time when proceedings under clause (1) (c) are initiated the member actually occupies the character of a defaulter and not if he was under the disqualification sometime before the initiation of the proceedings.

     According to the High Court decision, sub-rule (2) of rule 44 prescribe the effect of supervising disqualification or a disqualification that is discovered or noticed subsequent to the election or appointment of a member of committee.  Reading clause (c) (i) of sub-rule (1) together with sub-rules (2) of rule 44, a member ceases to be a member of the Committee if  he is a defaulter in terms (c). Then the default occurred the cessation of the membership follows as a consequence.

Sub:   Audit-Audit objections/observation-Summary of defects-rectification of

Under section 63 of the Kerala Co-operative Societies Act 1969, Registrar shall audit or cause to be audited by a person authorised by him by general or special order in writing in this behalf, the accounts of every society at least once in each year.  If the result of the audit held under section 63 disclosed any defects in the working of a society, the Registrar may bring such defects to the notice of the society directing the society to take necessary action to rectify the defects. It is the responsibility of the managing committee/board of directors of the society to discuss all aspects of the audit report dispassionately in detail and chalk out remedial measures for financial failures and administrative lapses as pointed out or revealed by the document and present the report to the General Body for discussion.  But it is noted that most of the audit reports are not acted upon as above with the result that the state of affairs of the institutions continued to be the same without any progress and that the defect/irregularities pointed out are repeated every year. To overcome this following instructions are issued to all societies for strict compliance.

1.       Soon on receipt of the audit report of the institution, a meeting of the Board of Directors/Managing Committee is to be convened mainly for discussing the audit report and chalking out remedial measures for financial failures and administrative lapses.

2.       The report of the Managing Committee/Board of Directors in the matter along with the audit certificate should be presented before the General Body for discussion.

3.       In the board meeting/Managing Committee/General Body where the audit report is discussed, an officer each from the department and the financing institution  should also be invited, in order to facilitate the Registrar or any other person deputed by him to attend the meeting as per provisions contained in sub-section (2) of Section 29 and Sub-Section 5 of Section 30 of the Kerala Co-operative Societies Act.

CIRCULAR No. 25/83

Sub:   Co-operative Societies-Unlawful expenditure from general funds-prohibition of

It has been brought to the notice of the Registrar that some of the Societies are in the habit of incurring expenditure from out of the general funds without authority.  Instances where societies insert advertisements in more than  one publications which do not have even remote relationship with the activities of the societies or wide circulation are not few.  Normally, for the sake of publicity, the societies may advertise their activities or invite deposits through publications of repute and of fairly wide circulation so as to reach a large number of readers.  The publications should be selected in consideration of the fact that their readers will be those sections of the public who form the majority of the members of the society.  Publications which are not likely to reach the target groups should not be favoured with advertisements just as a favour.  Further frequent advertisements just to favour the publications concerned have also to be discouraged.  Cases of donations on a large scale against the provisions of section 55 of the Act have also been brought to the notice of the Registrar.  The general funds should not be frittered away through donations.  The share capital deposits and borrowings of a society are not available for such donations or payments by way of Ex-gratia allowances etc.  Committees which authorise such payments are liable to be proceeded against under section 68 of the Act.  The Joint Registrars are responsible to see that such payments are strictly avoided.
Some of the societies appear to be under the impression that expenditure on any item can be incurred provided there is provision in the annual budget.  It is wrong.  Unavoidable expenditure necessary in the course of the business of the society only can be incurred.  The Joint Registrar should therefore, see that the annual budget of the societies are scrutinised by the Inspecting officers/Auditors and ensure that unreasonably large outlay on such miscellaneous expenditure is not permitted.  The inspectors and auditors will be given strict instructions to point out, in time, cases of budget provision or expenditure which are considered unnecessary or excessive.  Deterrent action will be taken by the Joint Registrar wherever  such instances are noticed. 
The Auditors will be particularly alerted to ensure timely intimation of such instances of unauthorised expenditure.
The receipt of this circular may be acknowledged.

        ii. Circular No. 8/80, MP (i) 9300/80 dt. 18-2-80

Instructions have been issued, vide references cited, that primaries shall purchase rubber only from members and also sell the same to the Rubber Marketing Federation only.  But it has come to the notice of the Registrar of Cooperative Societies that some of the Primary Societies and the Federation also, at times purchase rubber from private traders.  This cannot be allowed, in the best interests of the growers as well as the societies themselves.  The Rubber Board has also strong objections to this unhealthy practice.  To maintain a cordial and good relation between the primaries and apex federation and to uphold the interests of the grower members the following instructions are issued for strict compliance.
(1).    The primary rubber marketing societies shall  purchase rubber only from registered rubber grower members.  The federation shall purchase rubber and allied products, from member societies only.
(2)     The primaries, shall sell their stock of rubber so procured, to the Rubber Marketing Federation.  On no account, shall they sell their rubber stock to any other party without the concurrence of the federation.
(3)     All purchases shall be made only after proper grading by the primaries or the federation, as the case may be.
(4)     To ease the marketing plan of the federation the primaries shall enter into definite agreement with the Apex Federation, indicating the exact quantity of products (grade wise) that they can supply during the next one year.  Based on this, the federation shall prepare definite market plan for the next one or two years and find necessary end-market for their stock.
(5)     Federation shall purchase all stocks from primaries, properly graded and keep a buffer stock if necessary, or sell the same to the consuming industry direct.
(6)     Purchases by primaries and Federation shall be made at prices, fixed on definite norms, accepted by both.  Payments shall also be made either in cash or by Demand Draft.  Prices may be fixed for definite period of time, and for definite regions.
(7)     Arrangements for Transportation from Primary societies to godowns of Federations, shall also be made sufficiently early, on terms mutually acceptable to both, that is, either it shall be done by the federation itself, or by the primary societies the cost being met by the Federation at prefixed/agreed rates.
(8)     Federation shall also render all other services to member societies dissemination of market intelligence, supply of inputs etc. properly and in time.

These instructions, shall be observed strictly by all the institutions concerned and any violation of these instructions will be seriously dealt with under the provisions of the Kerala Cooperative Societies Act besides withdrawing financial assistances already given and black listing the institutions. Such societies will not, thereafter be selected for inclusion under any plan schemes.

Sub:   Kerala Co-operative Societies Act, 1969 Section 32 Resignation of Nominated and other elected members-No quorum for the Committee-Whether the Registrar can proceed under Section 32 or whether he is bound to make nominations in the place of those who have resigned so as to enable the committee to function with quorum.

Isak Abraham, President, Pampady Service Co-operative Bank Vs. Joint Registrar of Co-operative Societies, Kottayam (O.P.No.9845 of 1982) is a case where 4 elected members and two nominated members resigned their membership from the Committee reducing the membership of the committee thereafter to 5.  The committee was superseded and an administrative committee was appointed.  The petitioners in the above O. P.contended that it was open to Joint Registrar if Co-operative Societies to nominate two members in the place of the nominated members who resigned so that with seen members on the committee there would have been quorum for the functioning of the committee.

The Hon’ble High Court while rejecting the above contention observing as follows:

“Whether the Registrar should have at once nominated another two members instead of exercising his powers under section 33 (1) of the Act is a matter for the discretion of the Registrar in which this court would not ordinarily be justified to interfere. There is, therefore, no force in the contention that the residuary committee with the petitioner as the President should have been retained with the aid of two members which the Registrar could have nominated”.

Sub:   Purchase of land/building by Co-operative Institutions-instruction issued-regarding.
It has come to my notice that Co-operative Institutions purchase land with building based on valuation done by the own Engineers of the institutions on the plea that it would be difficult to get valuation certificates from Revenue Authorities or Public Works Department authorities. Ordinarily societies approach the Village Officers for valuation certificate in respect of land.  In respect of buildings the Public Works Department is approached.  There is inordinate delay in getting the certificates from such authorities.  This causes a lot of inconvenience to the societies.  This has to be avoided.  At the same time the tendency to invest on land and buildings for in excess of the capacity of a society has also to be checked.  Therefore in the matter of purchase of land/buildings by Co-operative Institutions the following procedure should be observed.
1.       No purchase should be made without sanction from the Department for utilising the general funds for the purpose.
2.       General funds will be utilised for the purpose only where it will not affect the normal business of the society.  It should be possible to recoup the amount utilised from general funds in annual instalment from out of the surplus and within a reasonable period not exceeding 5 years.
3.       The Joint Registrars will certify the value of land.  This may be based on the average sale price for a period of 3 or 4 years or average market price whichever is higher.
4.       The valuation of the building should be done by Public Works Department.
5.       Those who flout these instruction will be liable to make good the lose on account of the dead investments.  All institutions may be informed of the above by Joint Registrars.

Sub:   Election-election to the Board of Directors of Societies-Instructions issued.

Conduct of election to the Board of Directors of Co-op: is an important responsibility of departmental officers.  The Returning Officers are primarily responsible for conducting election strictly in accordance with Rule 35 of the Rules.  The mandatory provisions of the Rules will have to be adhered to strictly.  There have been instances where the Returning officers erred in complying with the provisions of the Rules in full resulting in avoidable litigation and consequent problems to the societies and department.  This has to be avoided.  Apart from the Rules, the rulings from the Court are also available for guidance to the officers.  They are requested to post themselves with up-to-date information regarding election so that on no account an election is set aside for reasons of effective procedure adopted or failure to go by the provisions of the rules.  The Joint Registrars may discuss the rules and the rulings of the Court in the monthly conferences so that all will be well informed of the statutory requirements.  They may also be informed that cases of negligence will be treated as an act of in-discipline and dealt with accordingly.

Apart from adhering to the rules and the procedure, the Returning Officers have to be impartial.  It will be necessary not only that they are strictly impartial but also appear to be so in the eyes of persons concerned in an election while bonafide mistakes will be understandable. Any partisan action on the part of the Returning Officers will be taken serious note of and dealt with accordingly.  Adverse comments from the Court particularly regarding partisan attitude of the Returning Officer will entail in disciplinary action.

Sub:   Co-operative  societies Rules, 1969 (Kerala)
Ref:   Rule 35 (3) (p) whether once election is stopped by the Returning officer it can be continued from the stage at which it was stopped.

As per clause (p) of sub-rule (3) of Rule 35 of the Kerala Co-operative Societies Rules, the Returning Officer shall have power to stop the polling under certain circumstances. But the Rule is silent as to from where the election process should again be started when the polling or the election process is stopped by the Returning Officer. The view hither to adopted was that the election process once stopped cannot be continued from the stage at which the election was stopped but it has to be resumed afresh. Now the Kerala High Court by a Division Bench decision in Abubaker Vs Kunhavaran and others (1983 K.L.T.995) has held that once the election is stopped by the Returning Officer under Rule 35 (3) (p) it can be continued from the stage at which it was stopped.

In the above decision the High Court has held as follows:

“Rule 35 (3) (P) provides for stopping the polling and this may be done at any stage of the polling.  It is on the satisfaction that it is not possible to take the poll.  The power to stop the polling is not a power which enables him to efface what has already been done.  The power of cancellation is different from the power of stopping.  When something is cancelled what has already been done is effaced.  The rule contemplates stopping because polling cannot go further on account of certain circumstances until a situation arises where the obstruction or obstacle is removed. Necessarily therefore by its very character stopping of a polling does not mean that what has been done would be rendered ineffective.  Even from the point of view of expediency this would be a proper approach for otherwise the election will have to commence over and over again if only there is an attempt again and again to create some trouble or obstruction.  The incentive for creating such obstruction would be more if the effect of such obstruction is to nullify whatever has been done by way of polling.  Apart from that on the plain meaning of the rule it is proper to treat stoppage as one which for the time being operates to discontinue the polling so that it may be continued again.  If it could be continued the very fact that it is continued would show that it could be taken up from the stage at which it was stopped.  In the context of the rules it is not possible to read the words “stop the polling” to mean that whatever   has been done is also nullified”.

I am new to developing sites and I was wondering if
having your site title relevant to your content
really that vital? I see your title, "Blogger: Cooperation സഹകരണം " does seem to be spot on with what
your website is about yet, I prefer to keep my title less content descriptive and
based more around site branding. Would you think this is a good idea or bad idea?

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
