Want to understand if the bye-laws for the society and association are the same.

4. All the registered co-operative housing societies in the state should make
necessary amendments in their bye-laws as above. However, even after not
doing this, these orders shall come into force from dt. [deleted]
Please do let us know if is applicable to Association as well.
