Cooperative Societies Election Committee Rules, 1971. The entire process of

hope and trust that the competent authority would continue the election process
schedule hereinbefore mentioned and would conduct the election of the Society
as expeditiously as possible without any delay unless he is prevented by any
order of the Court or the authorities in that behalf.
administrator would continue in office till the elections are over and the
elected committee takes over the management.
Dave, the learned senior counsel appearing for the appellants seeks to contend
the correctness of the action taken against them on several legal grounds.
Since the administrator has already been appointed, we are of the view that the
issues raised have become academic. Therefore, we are not expressing any opinion
appeal is disposed of accordingly. No costs.
