Civil Misc. W P No.15151of 1999
Hon'ble Vikram Nath, J.
This petition is directed against the order dated 22.7.98 and 31.5.93 passed by the Courts below in proceeding u/s 21(8) of the U.P. Act No. 13 of 1972 whereby the rent of the premises in dispute has been enhanced from Rs.200/- to 1327.65p. w.e.f. 1.12.1985.
I have heard learned Standing Counsel for the petitioner and Sri S.S. Singh holding brief of Sri Pankaj Mittal learned counsel for the landlord respondent.
Both the Courts below have recorded the concurrent findings on the valuation of the premises in occupation of tenant and have relied upon the report of the valuer submitted by the landlord. It is not disputed that the State did not lead any evidence to show that market value as indicated in the report of the valuer of the landlord was excessive or arbitrary. The Courts below on the basis of the evidence on record have held that the market value of the property of Rs.159320/- and applying the Formula laid down in the proviso u/s 21(8) of the Act fixed the rent at Rs.1327.65p. per month. The finding of the courts below are finding of fact. Learned Standing Counsel is not able to point out any error requiring interference by this Court. Accordingly the petition lacks merit and is dismissed.
It is stated by the learned Standing Counsel that pursuant to the interim order dated 12.4.1999 the petitioner has deposited the amount. However, the counsel for the landlord respondent has objected. Whatever may be the case, the petitioner will deposit the entire amount due pursuant to the order passed by the Court below within a period of three months and amount already deposited may be adjusted and details of the same furnished to the landlord respondent.
With the aforesaid observations, the writ petition is dismissed.
