Dhirendra Kumar Saxena v. Prescribed Authority/small Cause Court And Others - WRIT - A No. 61931 of 2005  RD-AH 3560 (26 September 2005)
Civil Misc. Writ Petition No.61931 of 2005
Dhirendra Kumar Saxena Vs. Prescribed Authority and others
Petitioner is a tenant against whom landlords-respondents have filed release application under Section 21 of U.P. Act No.13 of 1972 which is pending in the form of P.A. Case No.33 of 2004 - Raj Bahadur Singh and another Vs. Dhirendra Kumar Saxena on the file of Prescribed Authority/JSCC, Moradabad. Tenant-petitioner has filed reply, counter affidavit as well as additional counter affidavit and the case is fixed for arguments. After filing of written statement, counter affidavit, additional counter affidavit and other affidavits, the tenant filed an application that release proceedings must be dropped as on the release application signatures of applicants are not there. Tenant also filed application for bringing on record certain documents in the form of notice and money order coupon etc. Some more prayers were also made. The Prescribed Authority rejected all the applicants by impugned order dated 29.7.2005 hence this writ petition.
In respect of money order coupon etc Prescribed Authority rightly held that question of rate of rent or payment of rent is not at all relevant for the purposes of release application under Section 21 of the Act. Similar copy of some judgment which was sought to be adduced by the tenant was refused to be taken on record by the impugned order on the ground that in the said judgment landlords had been restrained from forcibly evicting the tenant hence it was irrelevant.
In my opinion Trial court/Prescribed authority have rightly rejected all the applications of the tenant, which were aimed at delaying the proceedings.
There is no merit in the writ petition hence it is dismissed.
