On registration of the society it becomes a separate legal entity. Thereafter, the management of the affairs of the society is carried out by the managing committee which is elected by the general body meeting of the society.

Later in a general body meeting of the so formed society, the matter to form an apex society combining all the small societies within the township may be taken up and resolved accordingly so that an apex society may be formed as desired,
