Object & Reasons6
|Statement of Objects and Reasons. - Section 29 of the Uttar Pradesh Co-operative Societies Act, 1965 (U.P. Act 11 of 1966) inter alia provided that the term of every Committee of Management shall be five years and the term of elected members of the Committee of Management shall be co-terminous with the term of such Committee and the Registrar may extend the term of the outgoing Committee of Management for a period up to six months where for any extraordinary circumstances the elections of the members of the Committee of Management has not been, or could be completed. It has been felt that due to the term of the Committee being long the misuse of power and administrative and financial irregularities were increasing. It was, therefore, decided to amend the said Act to provide for reducing the term of Committee of Management and the members thereof from five years to two years and empowering the Registrar to postpone an election where he is satisfied that circumstances exist which render it difficult for him to hold the election on the date fixed therefore and to appoint an administrator or Committee of Administrators after the expiry of the term of the Committee of Management of which the election of the elected members has not taken place or could not take place for any reason whatsoever. Since the State Legislature was not in session and immediate legislative action was necessary to implement the aforesaid decision, the Uttar Pradesh Co-operative Societies (Second Amendment) Ordinance, 2007 (U.P. Ordinance 34 of 2007) was promulgated by the Governor on September 5, 2007. This Bill is introduced to replace the aforesaid Ordinance.|
