- The tenant motor company aggrieved by this, filed a P.A. appeal, but it was dismissed.
- The release application was filed by the plaintiff-landlady without impleading partners of the firm. Therefore, the release application was liable to be dismissed on the ground of non-joinder of necessary parties.
- Provisions of the order are not applicable under Section 38 of the U.P. Urban Buildings Act, 1972 (Rent Act) and & as per the judgements in M/s. Chhotelal Pyarelal Vs. Shikharchand and PrabhakarMehrotra and another Vs. District Judge
