1. There is a provision in the Maharashtra Ownership Flats Act, 1963 and Rules, 1964 for making conveyance of the land and building of the Co-operative Housing Societies or Apartments by the Developer/Promoter within a prescribed period. Since the implementation of this provision is not being followed by the Developer/Promoter, the Housing Department by making amendment in Section 10 and 11 of the said Act has made provision of Ex-parte Deemed Conveyance for the Co-operative Housing Societies. And for this purpose all District Deputy Registrar, Co-operative Societies in the state and Joint Registrar, Co-operative Societies (CIDCO) for the CIDCO Jurisdiction have been appointed as Competent Authority for this purpose. Similarly incidental to implementation of the said procedure, the list of the necessary documents required for deemed conveyance has been fixed under the Government Resolution, Housing Department, dated 25-02-2011t. However, since the Housing Societies faced many problems in obtaining the said documents, the deemed conveyance procedure was not that much impetus. Similarly it is also noticed that Societies also are not ready to come forward for this.

2. Considering the above matters and since it is necessary to make simplification of deemed conveyance procedure of the co-operative housing societies and to minimized the number of documents required for it, a committee on the level of Commissioner, Co-operation and Registrar, Co-operative Societies, Maharashtra State, Pune was constituted for making recommendations to the Government by studying in this regard. Incidental to the report submitted by the said committee and to take policy decision in this regard, a co-ordination committee under the Chairmanship of the Principal Secretary (Housing) was constituted. In the meeting of the said committee, all recommendations in the report submitted by the Commissioner, Co-operation, and Registrar, Co-operative Societies, Maharashtra State, Pune have been accepted. Similarly, Housing Department vide its Government Resolution, dated 14-06-2016, had brought down the number of required documents for deemed conveyance from 12 to 8. And similarly Revenue and Forest Department also issued Circular in this regard on 12-07-2016 regarding minimum 5 documents which are necessary for valuation and registration of deemed conveyance.

3. Since the recommendations in the report submitted to the Government in respect of deemed conveyance by the Commissioner, Co-operation and Registrar, Co-operative Societies, Maharashtra State, Pune are related with Revenue and Forest Department, Urban Development Department, Co-operation, Marketing and Textile Department, Hon’ble Chief Secretary has communicated to the respective department to take necessary action on the said recommendations and submit the report in this regard. Thereafter incidental to implementation of these recommendations, one meeting was organized in his chairmanship on 26-09-2016, In the said meeting, review of the action taken by the concerned departments incidental to the recommendations of the committee constituted under the Chairmanship of Principal Secretary (Housing) for removal problems in the deemed conveyance was taken and similarly year wise review of the pending deemed conveyance cases in the office of the Commissioner, Co-operation and Registrar, Co-operative Societies, Maharashtra State, Pune was also taken. It came to notice during the discussion that, since it would be more difficult to the applicant to submit prescribed documents mentioned in the Government Resolution issued by various department, therefore if only one Government Resolution prescribing all documents as expected by this department and inclusive of all guidelines, all information will get at one level and procedure of making application would be easier and giving relief to the applicant. Therefore, it is decided in the said meeting that, by taking in consideration the provisions regarding deemed conveyance and the procedure to be followed by the Competent Authority incidental to that, duties to be discharged and difficulties faced by the citizens, a draft of one Government Resolution only should be prepared. The said Government Resolution should be issued after taking opinion of all concerned departments.
