CHENNAI :We are residing at a senior citizens’ home in Coimbatore where around 100 families are living. A minorioty group of residents refused to pay the increase fee for food and maintenance and formed a rival association by registering under Societies Act. Based on theirpetitions, the Registrar of Societies has cancelled the recognition of our society without properly hearing us. Now we have challenged the order with the Inspector General of Registration and awaiting for his order. The residents belonging to the other association is refusing the pay the increased maintenance and food costs. How to recover the money from them when the case is pending before the Inspector General of Registration?

Since your society’s registration has been cancelled by the authorities, you have no locus standi to pursue any remedies. The parallel society cannot be stopped from its activities as there is no legal bar. Hence the question of minority and majority does not arise.
I am working as a teacher in a Adi Dravidar Welfare Department School. There is a government order mandating increase in nine PG teachers for schools that are upgraded as high schools. But for certain subjects, the teachers are not appointed. What legal action can an individual take to make the government appoint more teachers for the upgraded schools?
Engage a good lawyer and file a writ petition in the High Court for sanction of posts for teachers in all subjects. Regarding expenses and lawyer’s fees it depends on the lawyer whom you are going to engage.
