1. You have an indefeasible right to use the parking space available in the society. 

2. Since the society has not allotted specific car parkings you can park your car in any of the slots.

1) You can certainly use the allocated parking space as you are the registered owner.

2) If there is space for tenants to park there shouldn't be a problem for the tenants to park though it will be subject to conditions/charges society can apply.

3) Society is also at liberty to levy parking charges for the owner.

1) society cannot discriminate against flat owners merely because they are not residing in the society 

2) if number of slots are less preference can be given to permanent residents 

3) in case society refuses to allot you slot you will have to challenge resolution passed in the managing committee or AGM 

4) you can move cooperative court against the society for allotment of car parking slot

1. The right of the tenant to park his car in the society will be governed by the rental agreement.

2. If the parking slot is denied to you then issue a lawyer's notice to the secretary. This will set him right.

Hello,
1) Subject to approval in the general body meeting the society can refuse parking by tenants.It should be allowed with a fee.

2) Society cannot deny your right to park.You can approach the court for an order against the society's decision that is illegal.

The flat and a parking slot is owned by the member of the society. hence it is the members property to rent out and the flat along with a parking slot can be the subject of rent in the tenancy/lease agreement.
