Housing societies granted permits to conduct society meetings but in the digital platforms.

The Commissioner and Registrar of the Co-operative Societies have issued an order permitting the housing societies to conduct meetings and day-to-day activities but in digital platforms. This came in wake of the coronavirus situation which is about to touch its 7th month in the country. The activities in the housing society and other co-operative societies came to a sudden halt as the country went into lockdown with strict regulations of social distancing. However, since it looks like the situation is far from getting over anytime soon, and that living with coronavirus is the new normal way of life henceforth, everything is slowly coming back again maintaining the social distancing and other norms. Conducting meetings in the digital mediums is the easiest way out for any type of necessary gathering at the moment. 

While issuing the order, Anil Kawade, commissioner, Maharashtra cooperation and registrar of co-operative societies, has stated that the order has been issued to all deputy registrars of co-operative societies to conduct general body meetings through video conferencing, emails, and all the decisions taken on digital mediums will be considered valid. The order further stated that conducting board meetings is mandatory and the agenda has to be shared and communicated to each member prior to the meeting.
