For the sake of convenience we shall describe the appellant as the tenant and the respondent as the landlady of the premises.

No. 163 of 1977) in the Court of Rent Controller, Chandigarh, under S. 13 of the East Punjab Urban Rent Restriction Act, 1949 (hereinafter referred to as the Act) for the eviction of the tenant on two grounds, namely, non-payment of rent and subletting of the flat portion and Barasati portion of the premises.
