Transfer of share or interest in a cooperative society by its member in favour of nominee, binding on it

Indrani Wahi vs Registrar Of Coop. Societies & Ors.

Supreme Court


CIVIL APPEAL No.4646 OF 2006 with CIVIL APPEAL No.4930 OF 2006

About/from the judgment:

In the same manner as is postulated under Section 79 of the 1983 Act, Rule 127 of the 1987 Rules provides, that if a nomination has been made by a member under Section 79, the share or interest or the value of such share or interest standing in the name of the deceased member, would be transferred to the nominee. It is however, necessary to notice that Rule 127 postulates nomination only in favour of a person “belonging to his family”. It is not necessary for us to deal with the issue whether the appellant – Indrani Wahi, being a married daughter of the original member – Biswa Ranjan Sengupta, could be treated as a member of the family, of the deceased member (Biswa Ranjan Sengupta), because the learned Single Judge, as also, the Division Bench of the High Court concluded, that the appellant – Indrani Wahi was a member of the family, of the original member - Biswa Ranjan Sengupta. This conclusion has not been assailed by the respondents, before this Court.
