MY shop is rented in Rajasthan and tenant deposits due rent of more than 5 months on receiving our notice under section 9 (4). Therefore, he escapes from prosecution. Then again does not deposit rent for next 4 months. As a normal law for every completed month of tenancy he is required to deposit rent by 15th day of next month.
1) Do I again required to serve him notice under 9(4) ? If yes then what is the sense in making a law where a tenant is required to deposit rent by 15th day of next month for which rent has become due. He may only deposit rent only on receiving notices for same and escape prosecution many a times
2) If he may be prosecuted as wilful defaulter ?
3) Any other recourse available ?
