  Supersession of Executive Committee and appointment of Administrator  
10. (1) Where the Government is of opinion that the affairs of a registered trade organisation are not being properly managed and that the interests of trade and industry so require, it may, by order in writing, supersede the Executive Committee of such trade organisation for such period, not exceeding 1[ one year], as may be specified in the order:



Provided that no such order shall be made unless the Executive Committee has been given a notice in writing of, and afforded an opportunity to make a representation against, the intended supersession.



(2) Where-



(a) an Executive Committee is superseded under sub-section (1), or



(b) it is not, in the opinion of the Government, possible for any reason to reconstitute the Executive Committee at the due time of such reconstitution, or



(c) the Executive Committee is debarred by an order of any Court, from discharging its functions,



the Government may appoint, for such period, not exceeding 2[ one year], as it may think fit, an Administrator to take over the functions of such Committee and to manage and conduct the affairs of the trade organisation:



Provided that if the period of supersession is terminated or the Executive Committee is reconstituted or the order of the Court is vacated before the expiry of the period for which the Administrator shall have been appointed, the Government may direct the Administrator to relinquish the functions taken over by him in favour of the Executive Committee.

(3) Upon the appointment of an Administrator under clause (a) or clause (b) of sub-section (2), the members of the Executive Committee shall be deemed to have vacated their respective offices 3[ and no such member shall act or transact any business after such appointment].
