1. Haryana Registration and Regulation of Societies Act, 2012, Section  2(iii), 30 - Expression found under Section 30 that a Society having more than 300 members shall have a collegium must always be understood as a Society having a General Body of whose membership is more than 300 - If any deliberate act is made to constitute the membership to fall below the threshold, then it ought to be an issue for an adjudication regarding the validity of the election and in such a case, if motivation for withdrawal of membership or resignation could be shown only to scuttle the collegium process, then that situation could be remedied by finding the actual membership, irrespective of the fraudulent resignation, as not making possible the dissolution of the collegium or its composition.  (178) P.L.R.  
  2. Haryana Registration and Regulation of Societies Act, 2012, Section 39(10) - Election sought to be held by the erstwhile governing body of the Society - Election process had been initiated much before expiry of the term - All election proceedings should have been conducted by either District Registrar or any adhoc body or an administrator appointed by District Registrar in terms of Section 39(10) of the Act. (183) P.L.R.
  3. Haryana Registration and Regulation of Societies Act, 2012, Section 89 - Petitioner had filed a suit for permanent injunction and mandatory injunction to restrain the defendants not to circulate pamphlets/posters for making any false complaint against the plaintiffs before any Governmental or non-governmental authority and that matter does not come within the purview of authority under the Act and as such jurisdiction of the Civil Court is not barred.  (183) P.L.R.
  4. Haryana Registration and Regulation of Societies Act, 2012, Section 92(1) - Do not find that proviso (i) to Section 92 (3) of the Act of 2012 is ultra vires or that it takes away vested rights of the members of the petitioner society - This proviso is very clear and is in consonance with the repealing clause contained in Section 92. Sub-section (2) of Section 92 saves all the actions already taken under the repealed  Act. (179) P.L.R.  
  5. Haryana Registration and Regulation of Societies Act, 2012, Section 92(3), Proviso (i) providing more voting rights or more weightage of voting rights to different type of members, merely on the ground that they have donated more is totally unreasonable and arbitrary and is against the principle of democracy as well as free and fair election. (179) P.L.R.  
  6. Haryana Registration and Regulation of Societies Act of 2012 (1 of 2012) S. 39(6),79 - Order passed placing the election under abeyance is, under the circumstances, justified - The petitioner has even a remedy under Section 79 of the Act to prefer an appeal against an order of the Registrar to the Registrar General - The petitioner can defend his own action on the alleged deficiencies pointed out in the report of the District Registrar filed before court - If the appeal by the petitioner would for any reason be barred by law, the fact that the petitioner had been prosecuting this case could be set forth for exclusion of time and the appellate authority will consider the reasons set forth and condone the delay as admissible by law. (178) P.L.R.  
  7. Haryana Registration and Regulation of Society Act, 2012 (1 of 2012) - Resignation as President of the society - Plea that letter of resignation was fabrication and alleged acceptance was illegal - Section 22(1)(i) would require resignation to be accepted - If an acceptance was to be made by the members of the society, it has to be inevitably at a meeting lawfully convened - It has been observed by the District Registrar that no notice of the meeting had been served on any member and the Vice President had given a statement that he had not himself received any notice - It was just as well possible that even without written notice, the parties could have collected themselves to be present - In such an event, one would look at least for the presence of all the members of the Society to legitimize that there was meeting duly convened - District Registrar was, therefore, justified in stating that the meeting had not been validly convened.    (177) P.L.R.
