Hi, You can enter the membership in housing society either in singly name or joint name as both of them are the owners of the property.

equal share holder of the property can get membership either jointly or severally. there is no rule to prevent a joint holder of property to take membership of society jointly. voting right and fee shall be same as single member but both can get membership for security of their rights.

If the property was bought on the joint names, then the share certificate can be issue on both the names in the order of preference.
However, The Maharashtra Co-operative Societies Act and the byelaws framed under the said Act consider it otherwise in many cases.
A joint owner in a housing society is called an Associate Member. Sec. 2 (19) (b) defines "Associate Member" as a member who holds jointly a share of the Society with other, but whose name does not stand first in the share certificate. One has to ensure that in case of a joint ownership share certificates issued by the society should include both names.
"Member", in accordance with sect 2(19)(a), means a person joining in an application for the registration of a co-operative society which is subsequently registered, or a person duly admitted to a membership of a society after registration and includes a nominal, associate or sympathiser member. Thus, the definition of a Member under the Societies Act is an inclusive definition and includes the Associate Member. Therefore, an Associate Member will have all rights of a Member unless otherwise specifically provided for in the Act or in the byelaws of the Society.

The share certificate has to show them as joint owners. Their membership also has to be joint with rights at par with other members in society.
