The requirement of Section 4-B of the Societies Registration Act is for all the societies at the time of registration/renewal of a society, therefore, requirement under Section 4-B of the U.P. Act No. 23 of 2013 (vide which Section 4-B was added) can be applied in pending cases also. If there is a dispute with regard to the enrollment of the fresh members, the Registrar can direct the parties concerned to produce the minutes book, cash book, membership fee receipts etc. to establish that the enrollment was in terms of the bye-laws. If the Registrar examines the validity of the enrollment of the members on the basis of the aforesaid documents, it would ensure that rank outsider could not be able to control the affairs of the society on the basis of fake documents. Under Section 4-B, scope of inquiry by Registrar is to see validity of enrollment of members on the basis of documents referred in Section 4-B and to ensure that outsiders may not be able to control the affairs of society on the basis of fake documents.
