Commercial activities

(Querist) 11 September 2010 This query is : Resolved 
In our complex of 178 flats declared as residential men/women employed as doctors lawyers and other professions and on a capacity as MP of India are residing. There are many visitors to them to get their services and few of the residents are giving tutorial help to students.
One of the resident owners had complained to the secretary of the Association that a particular owner is attracting more visitors who get tutorial benefit resulting in prolonged usage of lifts and lights in common areas. Summing up the complainant has declared that such activities are of commercial nature and had to be stopped.
Can the places occupied by either lawyers/doctors or those giving tutorial be termed as commercial units?

well the law can be on both the sides, so a bit of work is needed to be done to find out some relevant judgments.

recently a Punjab and Haryana HC judgment declared lawyer's profession as a Business...but will have to see the detailed law in this regard.

Yes I agree.

Yes. Certainly they are commercial units. There is no doubt about it.If the professional carries out any activity in excess of merely residing there for making money the unit turns into a commercial one.

I do agree with Kiran
