Full Ownership to TENANTS under PAGADI system
In our country , a large number of people have been living in old buildings as tenants under the PAGADI system for decades. It means the landlord is the owner of the property, but possession of the property lies with tenants. These properties are covered under the Rent Control Act and are having minimal rents.
As they were not getting higher rents, the landlords didn’t bother to maintain these buildings or allow tenants to redevelop them. This tussle between landlord-tenants results in structures remaining in bad shape and forcing tenants to live in dilapidated structure risking their lives.
This has caused collapse of several old and not-repaired buildings, and ultimately death of many citizens in Mumbai and other parts of country.
A new amendment has been proposed by BJP legislators Mangalprabhat Lodha demanding living ownership rights to such tenants so that such structures can be redeveloped.
My humble to request Supreme Court is to tackle this issue asap and help to save lives of poor citizens.
