Landlord harrasing

I am doing business in a industrial property in Delhi for last 30 years. few
months back my landlord disconnected the electricity to force me out
of the property. I have paid full rent and electricity charges prior
to it. I have stopped paying him rent for the property and asking him
to restore electricity. He refused and threaten me that he will throw
me out soon. what should i do. our rent agreement expires 20 years
back but neither i nor landlord make any objection and he was taking
rent regularly. By not having valid rent agreement how can i defend
myself.

B. No owner has right to stop the electricity during the existence of tenant's possession notwithstanding terms of the rent agreement  is completed. Therefore, you can issue a legal notice to provide the sufficient electricity to the premises without vacate the premises. Moreover, it is not easy to evict you due to absence of rent agreement because of if the owner would like to approach the court for eviction/recovery of possession that the lease agreement must be submitted before the court of law and vice versa. Therefore, it is highly recommends that settle the matter by calling a meeting with the land owne
