`Thus, the courts below have recorded concurrent findings of fact and this petition is liable to be dismissed for the simple reason that the Courts below have found that there was shortfall of Rs.574.50P. In catena of decisions, Hon'ble the Apex Court has held that payment of court fee and Advocate's fee is mandatory.

The question regarding service of notice being question of fact having been decided against the petitioner by the Courts below, the same does also not require any interference in the writ jurisdiction.

Accordingly, the writ petition is dismissed.   The petitioner-tenant is directed to hand over peaceful possession of the accommodation, in dispute to the landlord within a period of one month from today failing which he shall be liable to be evicted by coercive process, in accordance with law, with the aid of local Police. No order as to costs.
