PG मालिकों को हाई कोर्ट से बड़ी राहत, प्राधिकरण के लीज़ कैंसिल करने के मंसूबे को लगा बड़ा झटका

नोएडा। नोएडा में चल रहे तमाम PG की लीज कैंसिल प्रकरण में नोयडा प्राधिकरण को बड़ा झटका  लगा है। हाईकोर्ट ने प्राधिकरण द्वारा की जाने वाली कार्यवाही पर रोक लगादी है।

हाईकोर्ट ने कहा कि PG कमर्शियल एक्टिविटीज में नही आते हैं। हम आपको बता दें कि नोएडा में पिछले लंबे समय से तमाम सेक्टरों में करीब 2500 PG हाऊस चल रहे हैं जिसको लेकर प्राधिकरण और PG मालिक आमने- सामने आ गए हैं।  प्राधिकरण ने लीज कैंसिल करने के नोटिस जारी किया था, वही इन PG में करीब 4 लाख युवक युवतियां विभिन्न राज्यों से आये हुए रहते हैं।

PG हाऊस से देश के विभिन्न भागों से आये पढ़ने वाले छात्रों को बड़ी राहत मिलती है।खास बात है कि प्राधिकरण ने तमाम इंस्टिट्यूट तो बनवा दिए हैं, लेकिन यहां पढ़नेवाले छात्रों के लिए आवास की सुविधा नहीं दी है।

Court No. - 21
Case :- WRIT - C No. - 31744 of 2019
Petitioner :- Paying Guest House Owners Welfare Association
Respondent :- New Okhla Industrial Authority And 3 Others
Counsel for Petitioner :- Ranjit Saxena
Counsel for Respondent :- C.S.C.,Kaushalendra Nath 
Singh,Pranjal Mehrotra
Hon'ble Pradeep Kumar Singh Baghel,J.
Hon'ble Piyush Agrawal,J.
Learned counsel for the petitioners seeks the leave of the Court
to amend the prayer of the writ petition.
Leave is granted.
Necessary correction shall be carried out during the course of 
the day.
On 27.09.2019, time was granted to the learned counsel for the
Development Authority to seek to instruction. No instruction
has been received by him.
The grievance of the petitioner and its members is that they
have allowed paying guests in one or two rooms of their
residential premises, which has been treated by the
Development Authority for commercial use.
Learned counsel for the petitioner has relied upon a Supreme
Court judgment in the case of Surendra Kumar Jain Vs.
Royce Pereira, MANU/SC/1365/1997 (Civil Appeal
Nos.7782-83 of 1997). He states that in the said judgment
similar issue was raised and it has been held that the position of
a 'paying guest' is similar to the position of a 'lodger' in
England. If the part is in the use of the 'lodger' and the owner
retains the control of the whole house, that is sufficient and it
cannot be treated as commercial use.
The matter needs consideration.
Sri Pranjal Mehrotra, learned counsel for the respondents prays
for and is granted three weeks' time to file a counter affidavit.
Rejoinder affidavit may be filed within ten days thereafter.
List immediately after expiry of the aforesaid period.
Having due regard to the facts of the case that the petitioners fora long time are using their accommodation for residential
purpose and in small portion of their accommodation they allow
the paying guests, hence, the entire residential premises cannot
be treated as commercial establishment.
Accordingly, until further orders, the effect and operation of the
impugned order dated 04.09.2019 (Annexure-6 to the writ
petition) shall remain stayed.
