CHENNAI: An arbitrator to decide the ‘irregularities’ in the election to Railway Employees Co-operative Credit Society Limited (RECCSL) will be nominated within 30 days, the Central Registrar of Co-operative Societies in New Delhi told Madras High Court last week.
Recording the same, Chief Justice S K Kaul said it was left open to the arbitrator to examine the issue relating to the period of limitation to raise the dispute. The CJ was disposing of the petitions filed by K Sankara Narayanan and G Sivakumar, the Southern Railway employees and RECCSL members.
According to petitioners, the term of RECCSL Board of Directors ended in April 2013. They filed a petition to hold the poll and during the course of hearing, the society came forward with a statement as if election was conducted on February 2, 2013, and SRMU general secretary N Kanniah was elected as the chairman of the society, which was not true.
