Conclusion
In India, Co-operative Societies were regarded as ideal instruments to motivate the people to come together and help themselves in the process of eliminating the unscrupulous middlemen making a huge profit at the expense of the society.
The main guiding factor if an individual or group of individuals want to form a society must be whether all the concerned members have common goal to achieve or not, it is important factor because only when they share common desire or intention then only society is desirable otherwise the whole purpose of forming a society will be defeated.
Societies like any other business structure come with certain advantages and disadvantages, they are:
Advantages
• Cooperative stores supply quality goods unlike other shops wherein adulterated foods maybe given to its consumers and thus saved them from adulteration and other malpractices.
• As consumers or members of the society are the owners and managers of such stores, genuine requirements of the majority of consumers can be met. In other words, goods required by a majority of the customers or members of the society are always dealt by such stores.
• Cooperative societies are an important form of democratic business enterprise because ownership is not vested in one person completely so as a result, no single group can secure control over the organization.
Disadvantages
• It only caters to the needs of small and medium-income groups so when there are large group with higher economic interest then it is preferable to choose another business model.
• There is much dependence on the honesty, integrity and loyalty of members and workers and once there are trust issues between the members it is hard to transact business thereafter.
• It is limited to certain objectives hence profits are minimal.
• Management of society usually rests in the hands of people with less managerial experience due to which society will suffer and many do not invest in hiring professionals to handle the society due to lack of funds or interest so henceforth growth of the society maybe put to stake by its own members.

CONVEYANCE DEED – AN IMPORTANT DOCUMENT

WHY CONVEYANCE DEED IS AN IMPORTANT DOCUMENT?

A deed is a written document or an instrument that is sealed, signed and delivered by all parties to the contract (buyer and seller). It is a contractual document that includes legally valid terms, and is enforceable in a court of law. It is mandatory that a deed should be in writing, and that both parties involved must sign the document.
There are different kinds of deeds, such as lease deeds, partnership deeds, trust deeds, gift deeds etc.

A conveyance deed is essentially one wherein the seller transfers all rights to legally own, keep and enjoy a particular asset, immovable or movable. In this case the assets under consideration are immovable, namely property.

On signing a conveyance deed, the original owner transfers all legal rights over the property in question to the buyer, against a valid consideration (usually monetary). This consideration, however, is irrelevant in the case of gift deeds, as they are based on fraternal or familial bonds.

A ‘conveyance deed’ or ‘sale deed’ implies that the seller signs a document stating that all authority and ownership of the property in question has been transferred to the buyer.
It is required to contain the following:

• Defined demarcation of the boundaries of the property
• Other rights (if applicable) annexed to the property and its use
• The chain of title i.e. all legal rights to the present seller.
• The method of delivery of the given property to the buyer.
• A memo of the consideration, stating how it has been received
• Any other terms and conditions that are applicable as far as the transfer of ownership rights are concerned.

Once the conveyance (or sale) deed has been executed on non judicial stamp paper, it needs to be registered. This can be done by presenting it at the Registrar’s office, and remittance of the registration fee.

Once the registration is done, the transfer moves into the public domain. The Government obtains its revenue in the form of Stamp Duty and Registration Fees, and at this point the process of conveyance is officially over.

get the rights for re-construction of the building only when the deemed conveyance is executed.

A COMPLETE GUIDE TO DEEMED CONVEYANCE

A COMPLETE GUIDE TO DEEMED CONVEYANCE

Most of the flat-owners of the newly constructed Societies/apartments do not have their sale deeds or conveyance deeds. Mostly in the newly constructed buildings, the builders provide for forming a housing co-operative society to which they shall transfer their interest in the property. Then the builders form the society but do not transfer the title of the property (read ownership) to the flat-owners or the society till he has transferred all the rights in the building/ Societies/apartments. Thus the builders/promoters are benefiting from the buyers lack of awareness and information.

To curb this practice, amendments were carried out in the Maharashtra Ownership Flats Act, 1963, in 2008 to appoint a Competent Authority (Registrar of Co-operative Housing Societies) to hear the grievances of such Societies/apartments owners and to safeguard their interest by executing deemed conveyance of such societies u/s 11(3) of Maharashtra Ownership Flats Act, 1963.

Ved Legal is having enough experience to deal with these kinds of Deemed Conveyance of Co-operative Housing Societies, in and around pune. Any aggrieved society or apartment holder can get resolution from us in regards of the same.

MEANING OF DEEMED CONVEYANCE:
A deemed conveyance means when the builder/ promoter/ developer of the project refuses to sign the conveyance deed the court can sign the same on behalf of the builder and record the same in the government records.

NEED FOR DEEMED CONVEYANCE:
In a situation when a promoter or owner of residential premises/ buildings does not transfer/convey the ownership of the flats to the housing society or association of persons (AOP), the society or AOP can make an application to Registrar of Co-operative Housing Societies, to transfer the ownership of the said flats to them. This process is carried on through Deemed Conveyance of the title of the buildings and land in favour of the Society or AOP without the need of the builder to do so.

IMPORTANCE AND PROVISIONS OF LAW ON CONVEYANCE:
As per the Housing Society bye-laws, the main objective of formation of the Society is to obtain the Conveyance; and if Conveyance is not given by the Builder within four months from the date of registration of the Society, a case can be filed against the Builder to obtain the Conveyance. As per Section 13 of Maharashtra Ownership Flats Act, 1963, failure to give Conveyance is an offence and the Builder can be imprisoned up to 3 years or fined or both.

ADVANTAGES OF CONVEYANCE:
1. Getting a proper and legal title in the name of the Society.
2. Retaining the additional FSI as per the Government announcements.
3. Property will be free and marketable.
4. Society can raise the loans for repairs and reconstruction by mortgage.
5. Permission from planning authorities is possible if the building has to be reconstructed at a later date due to dilapidation of the structure due to age or by earthquake.
6. Society can take the benefit of TDR.
7. Members can receive compensation from Builder on redevelopment of the building.
DISADVANTAGES OF NOT HAVING CONVEYANCE DEED
Even though you have purchased ownership flat, you are not the owner of the land and building. 2. In the event of a building collapse or damage to the building, you cannot reconstruct the building without the permission of the Builder / Land owner.
1. The Builder/Developer may mortgage the property purchased by you as he is the legal owner and holding the Title Deeds of the Property.
2. The Builder/Developer may tap the benefits in case the building is later taken up for redevelopment or if the plot has some unutilized floor space index.
3. The Builder may make profit by sale of open spaces, gardens, terrace, parking space belonging to the Society.
4. The Builder may demand a huge amount from the Society, if Conveyance is sought by the Society after a lapse of many years.
5. The Builder may sell the entire Development Rights and the Legal Rights on the land to third party and create a third party interest in the Property and the Society will have to incur a huge amount to clear the same.
CONDITIONS PRECEDENT FOR GETTING A DEEMED CONVEYANCE:
There are certain important conditions which need to be fulfilled to go ahead for deemed conveyance, some of them are:

1. At least 60% of the flats in that scheme should be sold.
2. A Co-operative Society or Association of Persons should have been formed of the flat-owners and at least 3-4 months should have been passed since then.
3. There should be communication between the builder and the society or AOP regarding Deemed Conveyance wherein the builder should have made a promise of completion of conveyance or refused to do the same.

PROCEDURE FOR FILING AN APPLICATION FOR DEEMED CONVEYANCE:
After the above mentioned conditions are fulfilled, the following steps shall be taken:
Write a letter /email to builder/ promoter requesting him to provide a draft of the SALE DEED/ CONVEYANCE DEED or providing the draft to him and requesting him to sign the same.

Stage 5- Transfer of Property after Deemed Conveyance
During this stage the Society Name is incorporated in the Land Revenue Records.
Let’s discuss each step in detail:

1. Preparation for Deemed Conveyance:
This is a very important stage where the Managing Committee prepares the Members of Co- Operative Housing Society for the Deemed Conveyance.
The Managing Committee convenes a Special General Meeting (SGM) of the Society by giving suitable notice highlighting the agenda.
The Managing Committee places before the SGM the difficulties faced for obtaining the Conveyance from the Land Owners/ Property Developers. The Managing Committee explains the effects of non- availability of Conveyance to the Members. The Managing Committee explains the Procedure & Benefits of Deemed Conveyance to the Members.
During this SGM the following Resolutions are typically passed.
1. Resolution for going ahead with Deemed Conveyance
2. Resolution for Appointment of Authorized Representative
3. Resolution for Appointment of Legal Consultant for Deemed Conveyance
4. Resolution for Per Member Contributions
2. Documentation for Deemed Conveyance:
This is the most crucial step in obtaining deemed conveyance. It is a very meticulous job and make sure all the documents are lined up within the right format. You would require land revenue records, municipal corporation records, society records, property development records and professional certificates.
All these documents can be obtained from various departments such as Land revenue records from City Survey Office, Tahasildar/Talathi Office & District Collector Office, municipal corporation records from Building Proposal Department of the Municipal Corporation. Society records and certificates can be obtained from society offices and professionals.
Once all the documents are lined up, society needs to fill in Deemed Conveyance Application- Form VII and attached all the related documents. In case of deemed conveyance, a legal notice is sent to the developer for their consent. In regular conveyance procedures, since the developers or promoters are willingly providing the rights lot of documents can be easily recovered from them.
Once the form is filled up and all documents are annexed it is submitted to the Competent Authority- the District Deputy Registrar of Co- Operative Societies of the particular District.
3. Legal Case for deemed conveyance:
Once the application is submitted to the authorities they issue Deemed Conveyance Scrutiny Report- Form VIII within 1 month. Once the compliance is provided the authorities issues Summons & Newspaper Notices to the Land Owners & Property Developers for appearing for the hearing.
During the hearing process authorities take into consideration the arguments of the both parties. The process takes place within 3-4 months. Once all the arguments are documented the office issues a Deemed Conveyance order within 1 month. The whole process is completed within 6 months as this is a time bound activity.
4. Registration of deemed conveyance:
A deemed conveyance deed is created during this phase and is signed by both societies and developers. If developers do not appear for hearing in the prior stage (Which is the case in deemed conveyance), authorities have the power to sign the deed on behalf of developers.
The society needs to conduct a meeting and appoint 3 members to sign the deed. Post that the deed is submitted to district stamp office for adjudication. If all the members have paid their stamp duty and if there is no balance FSI, the office issues adjudication certificate. (Note – Deed only requires Rs 100 stamp duty). The adjudication certificate needs to be then franked from local bank and resubmitted to registration office.
The registration office then issues notice to land owner/developer to verify if there is any stay order against the deed of conveyance. (Note – The developer can get the stay order only from high court). If there is no stay order the deed of deemed conveyance is registered and then the office issues scanned documents and Index II. This mark end of registration process and the society becomes the owner of the land and structure.
5. Transfer of property:
In this phase a new application is submitted to various departments to make mutation entries in their records. This would make the process complete.

Registration of Deemed Conveyance

On receipt of the Deemed Conveyance Order, the Deemed Conveyance Deed between the Competent Authority & the Society is prepared. The Competent Authority appears in the Deed on behalf of the defaulting Land Owners & Property Developers.
The Deemed Conveyance Deed is submitted to the Office of Competent Authority for Approval & their Signature with Authority Stamp & Seal.
The Special General Body of the Society is called to approve the Deemed Conveyance Deed & to nominate 3 Members of the Society to sign the Deed.
The Deemed Conveyance Deed is executed by the signature of the Competent Authority & the signatures of the 3 nominated Members of the Society.
On execution of the Deemed Conveyance Deed, it is forwarded to the District Stamp Office for Adjudication. If all the Members of the Society have paid the Stamp Duty on their respective Flat/ Shop Agreements & there is no balance FSI, the Deemed Conveyance Deed attracts only Rs. 100/- Stamp Duty. The Stamp Office issues the Adjudication Certificate.
On receipt of the Adjudication Certificate, the Society pays the required Stamp Duty & gets the Deemed Conveyance Deed Franked from local Bank.
After Franking of the Deemed Conveyance Deed, the same is submitted to the Registration Office for Registration. The Registration Office issues a notice to the Land Owners & Property Developers to verify whether they have received any Stay Order from Proper Court against the Deemed Conveyance Order.
The Proper Court for issuing the Stay Order against the Deemed Conveyance Order is High Court. It is very difficult for the Land Owners & Property Developers to obtain the Stay Order from High Court against the Deemed Conveyance Order.
If there is no Stay Order received, the Registration Office Registers the Deemed Conveyance Deed. The Competent Authority is exempted from appearing for the Registration & hence the 3 Members nominated by the Society only appear for Registration.
After Registration of the Deemed Conveyance Deed, the Registration Office issues the Scanned Document & Index II typically within 15 days.
The complete Procedure of Registration of Deemed Conveyance Deed is typically completed within 3- 4 Months.
On receipt of the Index II, the Registration Process of the Deemed Conveyance Deed is successfully completed & the Society becomes the owner of the Land & Structure.

A vast majority of Co- Operative Housing Societies does not have the Conveyance in their favour & hence are not the owners of their Land & Building. In this situation, even though each member of the Co- Operative Housing Society has paid full consideration and is in possession of the Flat/ Shop allotted, he does not enjoy the benefits of title ownership of the Flat/ Shop.
In case of Co-Operative Housing Societies formed long back, many of the Buildings are in dilapidated condition and their repairs are not economically viable. The best solution available for these Co- Operative Housing Societies is to go ahead with Redevelopment. The non- availability of the Conveyance & therefore free/ marketable Title affects the Redevelopment Process badly.
In case of Co- Operative Housing Societies formed recently, the Redevelopment at the moment is not on the agenda. However the non- availability of the Conveyance and free and marketable Title may affect its present Revenue and may be a hindrance in Redevelopment process in future.
Therefore Deemed Conveyance is in the larger interest of the Co- Operative Housing Societies (and their each and every member) who are denied their right of Conveyance by the Land- Owners & Property Developers.

CONVEYANCE SERVICES FOR SOCIETIES

In most of the cases people believe that a Purchase Agreement is the final document they need to own. However, a mere purchase agreement does not pass on the developer’s rights on the land to the society. Societies need to make sure they have the complete right to the land, and mere society registration and formation does not provide those rights.
A Conveyance Deed helps societies to gain the right of their land. Post this builder relinquishes his legal right on the land.
