One has to weigh the pros and cons before deciding how economical and viable the entire project of redevelopment would be. The decision for redevelopment cannot be a hasty one. A Feasibility Report is required to be achieved from the Structural Engineer, to ascertain the cost of repairs in comparison to redevelopment. One has to find out whether redevelopment is more viable and suitable to the majority of the flat owners. The findings of the Structural Engineer and his suggestion would form the basis, whether to go in for redevelopment or repairs. The General Body discusses the findings tabled by the Structural Auditor with a view to estimate the kind of expenses one would incur for either going in for general repairs or complete redevelopment. Further the Managing Committee shall appoint a "Project Manager" who would prepare a viability report as per the project taking into consideration the financial details with a comparison of the repairs and reconstruction cost. The members of the Society shall receive a copy each of this report, since their opinion and suggestion are vital for obtaining a unanimous decision on carrying out such kind of a project. The General Body after seeking a unanimous decision would appoint a Sub-Committee to look after the affairs of the redevelopments if any to be carried out. This Sub-Committee would then appoint a professional consultant to start the (paper work) process and procedure.
