58. Deduction from salary to meet multi-State Cooperative Society's claim in certain cases.-
1. Notwithstanding anything contained in any law for the time being in force, a member of a multi-State cooperative society may execute an agreement in favour of that society providing that his employer disbursing his salary or wages shall be competent to deduct every month from the salary or wages payable to him, such amount as may be specified in the agreement and pay the amount so deducted to the society in satisfaction of any debt or other demand owing by the member to the society.
2. On the execution of such agreement the employer disbursing the salary or wages of the members shall, if so required by the multi-State cooperative society by a requisition in writing and so long as the society does not intimate that the whole of such debt or other demand has been paid, make the deduction in accordance with the agreement and pay the amount so deducted to the society within a period of fourteen days of the date on which deduction has been made, as if it were a part of the salary or wages payable on the day as required under the Payment of Wages Act, 1936, and such payment shall be valid discharge of the employer for his liability to pay the amount deducted.
3. If after the receipt of a requisition made under sub-section (2) the employer disbursing the salary or wages of the member at any time fails to deduct the amount specified in the requisition from the salary or wages payable to the member concerned or makes default in remitting the amount deducted to the multi-State cooperative society, the society shall be entitled to recover any such amount from such employer as arrears of land revenue and the amount so due from such employer shall rank in priority in respect of the liability of such employer equal to that of the salary or wages in arrears.
