Tenant not paying rent.. how to envict

My Great-Grandfather had rented a shop located in prime location in our city in punjab at just Rs 20/- per month some 30-40 years ago.  The tenant is not paying us rent for the last 10 years. Earlier also we had taken rent from him via court 2 times. My question is :-

1. Is it possible to envict him on the basis of defaulter as he is not paying us rent as earlier also he paid rent through court only.

2. If point 1 is not possible the is it possible to revise rent on market rate through court.

You can send legal notice to evict on the ground of willful default in paying rent and then file a case for eviction. If not can file a petition to fix a fair rent by court.

First of all you buy a Punjab Rent Control Act with amendment  upto date.  then read it to understand the rights available to you.  then approach a good lawyer.
