Jalvayu Towers RWA election set aside by state registrar


Gurgaon: The state registrar of societies and firms in Chandigarh has set aside the election to the residents’ welfare association (RWA) of Jalvayu Towers, located in Gurgaon’s Sector 56, and directed the district registrar to appoint an adhoc committee to get fresh elections conducted within 45 days.
The state registrar also said that the polls are to be held as per the existing by-laws and any amendments to the laws can only be brought in by the next governing body. In its order, a copy of which has been accessed by TOI, Vivek Kalia, the state registrar, writes, “It is its (authority) bounden duty to be constitutionally and legally correct even when its view and judgement is counter majoritarian. It has utmost regards for the mandate of the residents of Jalvayu Towers but in the instant cases they were misled and made to exercise their franchise not fully expounded about the danger of resorting to such stratagem.”
The election to theRWA of Jalvayu Towers was held in April last year, but its result was challenged by some of the residents alleging gross violation in the conduct of the election process. Following this, the residents had approached the state registrar alleging bias and misuse of power by the then district registrar in favour of one of the group contesting the election.
One of the residents of the society had filed a complaint against the district registrar for upholding the poll results. The resident in the appeal had said that just four days before the date of poll, the then district registrar ordered changes in the eligibility criteria of the contestants.
