SC: Tenant can’t be evicted even if he enters compromise unless grounds for eviction made.

The Supreme Court’s double bench of Justice Abhay Manohar Sapre and Justice Uday Umesh Lalit in the matter of M/s Alagu Pharmacy & Ors. v. N. Magudeswari on 14th August 2018, pronounced that even if the landlord and tenant come to a compromise, it would not be in the capacity of any court / rent controller to order an eviction of the tenant unless grounds for seeking eviction are made out according to the concerned rent act.

(Para 14) The common thread that runs through the aforesaid pronouncements of this Court is – in cases where protection under a Rent Act is available, no eviction can be ordered unless ground seeking eviction is made out, even if parties had entered into a compromise.
