Delhi HC has now ruled on similar lines to the P&H HC Order of 2009 presently in SLP before SC.
A copy of order (attached) reveals that unless Delhi Govt puts in SLP they have 30 days to appoint competent authorities and commence punitive action thereafter on developers who do not file initial "deed of apartment" for each apartment. 
 
Whereas P&H HC had left it to DTCP to decide future course (and the matter is hanging fire for last 8 months now in SLP before SC courtesy DLF), the Delhi HC is not waiting for Parliament to legislate the changes and has directed action on the ground within 30 days!!
 
Some of the directions relate to:
'Bye laws must allow sharing of profits/ losses - present system of SRA 1860 does not permit sharing of profits, hence it has to be discontinued. Competent authorities will have to arrange association registration (only one for each complex) and provisions for proper record by sub registrars would also have to be made now.'

Dear all,
 
Some notes on Apartment Owners Act are enclosed below.
 
As per serial 30 of RTI Reply of DTCP dated 12 December 2008 developer can not charge any maintenance till final completion of the project. If the sanction is in phases, then till final completion of that phase of the project, he may not levy maintenance charge.
 
The deed of apartment of first purchaser is compulsorily required to be registered by developer even if he has already got the conveyance deed registered for his own convenience, because deed of apartment is only possible to register after OC & Declaration is registered, and the consequent delay in handing over means developer has to pay late delivery penalty to customer. DRO Gurgaon in letter dated 25 September 2008  has directed all sub registrars to ensure registration as per 1983 Act i.e. NO conveyance deed - only deed of apartment.
 
Files on replies under RTI are also attached. May help in tackling the builders and DTCP.

"The basis of our Association's claim on common areas contained in Annexure to UGAOA letter dated 12 January 2009, attached. The adopted bye-laws document as it is at present, is at variance with model bye-laws:
 
1. It is in violation of Section 10 of the Haryana Apartment Owners Act 1983, "The common profits of the property shall be distributed among, and the common expenses shall be  charged to, the apartment owners according  to the  percentage of the undivided interest in the common areas and facilities."
 
2. It is in violation of Section 14(2) of the Act, "Upon removal of the  property from the provisions of this Act, the  property shall be deemed to be owned in common by the apartment owners. The  undivided interest in the property  owned in common  which shall appertain to  each apartment owner shall be the percentage of undivided interest previously owned by such owner in the common areas and facilities."
 
3. It is in violation of Section 16(3) (b) of the Act, "provisions enabling the Board of Managers to lease out certain areas of the property for the purposes for which the same are meant  and for distribution of resulting proceeds to the apartment owners as income  or application thereto in reduction of their common charges for maintaining the said property;"
 
4. It is in violation of Section 22(d) of the Act, "the property shall be subject to an action for partition at the suit of any apartment owner in which event the net proceeds of the sale together with the net proceeds of the insurance on the property, if any, shall be considered as one fund and shall be divided  among all the apartment owners in percentage equal to the percentage of undivided interest owned by each owner in the property after first paying out, all the respective shares of the apartment owners  to the extent sufficient for the purpose and all charges on the undivided interest in the property owned by each apartment owner."
 
5. It is in violation of Section 25(1) of the Act, "The State Government may, by notification, make rules for carrying into effect the provisions of this Act."
 
6. It is not in accord with model bye-laws notified under Section 25(1) of Haryana Apartment Owners Act 1983. This has been reported after investigation by DTP(Enforcement) Gurgaon in letter dated 26 September 2008 attached.
 
7. Bye-law B (vi) ) "basement excluding covered parking," removes covered parking from the definition of common areas - this violates not only model bye-laws - it violates Section 3 (f) (3) of  the Haryana Apartment Owners Act 1983.
 
8. Needless to say there are many other violations - as a sample, these are sufficient - the DTCP letters, as also the letters from the revenue authorities attached make clear that all is not well with the implementation of the Apartment Owners Act in Haryana."

New World Bank Access to Information Policy Takes Effect July 1
The World Bank is on track to begin implementing the first phase of its new policy on Access to Information on July 1. The new policy is one of several major reforms the Bank has undertaken to increase its effectiveness, efficiency and accountability, and positions the Bank as a transparency leader among multilateral organizations.

Innovation and Technology Can Reduce Impact of Disasters
More than 400 leading experts agreed to work on the application of innovative technologies to help countries mitigate and prepare for the catastrophic effects of disasters. The global forum that brought together the global "hacking for humanity" community discussed cutting-edge collaborative open source technologies such as Ushahidi, the GeoNode, as well as other Web 2.0, social media, and innovative methods of community-based risk assessment.

Why the G-20 Should Be Interested in the Development of the G-160 +
Korea's remarkable history of transformation from a poor nation into an industrialized country should serve as a reminder of why the G-20 should be interested in the G-160, said World Bank Managing Director Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala in a recent speech. A big chunk of the increased global demand needed to sustain output and jobs can come from emerging economies, she said. Read More
 
 
Low-Tech Approaches Aid Monitoring in Afghanistan and India
In conflict-affected Afghanistan, remoteness and increasing insecurity have hampered efforts to track the progress of a nationwide irrigation project. Now, cheap and relatively low-tech global positioning system (GPS) cameras are being used to record photos of the project. In nearby India, a pilot project will track maternal and child health visits via cell phones. Both efforts are piloting "remote supervision," to improve project outcomes. Read More
 
 
Regional Laboratory Network to Raise East Africa's Defenses Against Disease
Many countries in Africa have inadequate capacity to mount an effective response to regional and global public health threats. A new project aims to establish an urgently needed network of high-quality public health laboratories to improve access to diagnostic services among vulnerable populations living in the cross-border areas of Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, and Rwanda. The lab will strengthen health systems, address critical gaps in tuberculosis control, and promote regional collaboration. Read More
 
 
World Bank Announces Total Cancellation of Haiti's Debt
The World Bank announced that the remaining $36 million in debt owed by Haiti to the World Bank has been cancelled. Haiti now has no further amounts payable to the World Bank. "Relieving Haiti's remaining debt is part of our effort to pursue every avenue to help Haiti's reconstruction efforts," said World Bank Group President Robert Zoellick. Since the earthquake struck Haiti in January this year, the World Bank has provided $479 million in grants to support Haiti's recovery and development. Read More
 
 
Global Carbon Market Grows to $144 Billion
In 2009, the global carbon market grew to $144 billion, up 6% from 2008 despite enduring its most challenging year to date. The global economic crisis negatively impacted both demand and supply sides; many  projects ground to a halt. The World Bank's recently released "2010 State and Trends of the Carbon Market Report" finds another encouraging trend: national mitigation efforts are also growing.   Read More
