Premises Rent Control Act, 1991

The High Court Division observed that law permits eviction from the premises for construction or re-construction according to section 18 (Uma) of Premises Rent Control Act, 1991. We are of the view that the High Court Division on proper assessment of the materials on record arrived at a correct decision and there is nothing to interfere with the judgment of the High Court Division.

Section —10 read with Section-18

We are of the view the High Court Division was in error in reversing the judgment of the lower appellate Court affirming the judgment of the trial Court on the view that as the landlord had hand over possession of the premises in suit upon receiving an amount more than one month rent as advance, landlord forfeited his right of asking the tenant to hand over possession on the ground of bonafide requirement or seeking redress under the law in case of refusal by the tenant to hand over possession on the ground of bonafide requirement of the landlord.
