The Pagdi system is a pre-independence rental law that gives the tenant certain ownership rights over the rented property, including the right to sub-let the property or even sells it while giving a share to the original owner.
There are no leases or agreements between property owners and tenants
The tenants have certain rights over the property but not the land of the property
Tenants can sublet the property by themselves under certain conditions
Hence you can challenge the case properly in court as per law.
