Object & Reasons6
|Statement of Objects and Reasons. - In the proviso to sub-section (3) of Section 29 of the Uttar Pradesh Cooperative Societies Act, 1965 (U.P. Act 11 of 1966), it was provided that the Administrator or the Committee of Administrators appointed under the said section, as it stood before the commencement of the Uttar Pradesh Co-operative Societies (Second Amendment) Act, 1994 shall continue to exercise the powers and perform the duties of the Committee of Management till the Committee of Management is reconstituted or till December 31, 1997 whichever is earlier. Due to unavoidable reasons the elections of all the Co-operative Societies could not be completed in spite of continued efforts. It was, therefore, decided to extend the period of the said arrangement from December 31, 1997 to December 31, 1998 and lo validate anything done or any action taken by the said Administrators or the Committee of Administrators with effect from January 1, 1998. Since the State Legislature was not in session and immediate Legislative action to implement the aforesaid decision was necessary, the Uttar Pradesh Co-operative Societies (Amendment) Ordinance, 1998 (U.P. Ordinance 8 of 1998) was promulgated by the Governor on June 15, 1998. This Bill is accordingly introduced to replace the aforesaid Ordinance.|
