Public interest case

Rent control act is completly back dated and against the interest of landlord and overall developement. Government is taking stamp duty and registration fee based on the valution decided by them but fair rent is not based on that same valuation for said property which is a gross injustice to the whole system tyen why cant we go for public interest suit for this. Anybody pl guide me course of action to be taken for filing one public interest case in kolkata high court with some reference of truthful and fearless lawyear who can help me out and tentative cost involvement for this.

The Rent Controll Act, was enacted by various state Governments is a welfare Legislature and  Rent Controll Act, protect  the interest of the Tenants as most of the Tenants are poor.  Eviction under Rent Controll Act, there are restricion imposed by law and it is not easy to evict the Tenant under Rent Control Act, but most of the State Governments imposed rent ceiling and rent is exceed by the celing the Land Lord  Has been empowered under law  to invoke Transfer of Property Act,  to evic Tenant it is easy to evict  Tenant under Transfer of Property Act.

you are very right.please go ahead with this. we must  work to eradicate such discrepancies  from our system. Many a times we observe that a tenant is richer than the land lord,still he is enjoying tenancy at a mare rent.  We also see that the municipality taxes...corporation taxes have escalated, but rent has not .
