The Maharashtra Co-operative Societies Act, 1960 (MCS Act) specified appointment of one registering authority as well as Co-operative Housing Federation to co-ordinate with the respective registering authority for the specified zone. It is also the requirement of MCS Act, for a registering authority for co-ordination with an apex body of Federation of Co-operative Housing Societies under its jurisdiction.

Accordingly all the Co-operative Housing Societies of Navi Mumbai originally enrolled themselves as members of The Thane District Co-operative Housing Federation Ltd. under the control of the District Deputy Registrar, Thane.
