If you are a pet parent, and live in a multi-storeyed apartment complex, and your Apartment Owners’ Association, or the governing body of your housing society, or your Residents’ Welfare Association, or Estate Manager, or anybody at all,
- Suddenly puts up a notice declaring that you cannot take your pet up to your apartment through the use of the elevator, OR
- Declares that the bye-laws of the housing society don’t allow the use of elevators for pets
MUMBAI: The status of dogs in housing societies have been elevated. In a judgement that will set a precedent for housing societies on how to treat pets, the Central Mumbai Consumer Redressal Forum has rapped a Mahim society for charging one of its member Rs 500 for each of his two dogs using the elevator. Noting that pets are members of the modern, urban family, the forum ruled there is no reason why pets can’t use elevators when outsiders, including service providers such as milkmen and vendors, have access to the facility without any charges.
