Association neither encourages nor discourages owners to keep pets. However, since it
is understood that it is the right of owners to enjoy full ownership of their Apartments,
either banning pets or letting pets in the complex without proper safeguards is a violation
of the above right.

Pet owners are expected to exercise their right to acquire and maintain a pet making sure
that in the process they do not violate someone else’s right to enjoy the ownership of his
apartment without hindrance. Accordingly, the following rules are framed governing pets.
1. Whenever a pet is kept, it has to be intimated to the Management Committee in
advance (i.e. before acquiring a pet). In case of any dispute as to whether a
particular animal constitutes a "Pet", the decision of the Management Committee
based on normal prudence, will be the final decision.
2. All Pets will be acquired within the purview of Laws, Rules and Regulations
notified by the Government and other Civic Authorities. In case someone
acquires a pet prohibited by law, Association considers it its moral responsibility
to actively inform concerned authorities.
3. Owners will ensure that Pets are not a nuisance to the other residents in Alpine
The owners of the pets should be fully responsible for cleaning the droppings,
etc. within the complex and will deposit the same in the garbage bins.

to higher floors and bring them down without restrictions, the following points
stand valid:
a. The Pet has to be taken out in case someone who is already in the lift or
is desirous of taking the lift objects to the pet,

will be billed to the concerned Pet owner.
