(1.) These three appeals arise out of judgments dated 07.02.2020 with a common issue, whereby two properties that are in three
portions were subject matter of dispute. A certain area of land that
belongs to Shri Arulmighu Bhasyakara Adhi Chennakesava Perumal
Temple, West Mambalam, Chennai, was rented out to the forefathers
of the appellants and they had constructed a house over the said land.
It is said that rent was being paid regularly, but, in the year 1978, the
Temple authorities filed O.S.Nos.8574 to 8576 of 1978 for eviction and
possession in the City Civil Court, Chennai.

O.S.No.8575 of 1978 was filed against one Salammal, (who is the
grand mother of the appellants in W.A.Nos.439 and 575 of 2020) and
O.S.No.8575 of 1978 was filed against one Kuppusamy Reddiar (who
is the father of the appellants in W.A.No.439 and 575 of 2020). In all
the three suits, interlocutory applications were filed by the defendants
therein under Section 9 of the City Tenants Protection Act, 1921 and
the applications were allowed on condition to deposit a sum of
Rs.58,070/-, Rs.81.529.50 and Rs.48,000/- respectively. It is claimed

O.S.Nos.8575 and 8576 of 1978 were decided separately on
28.01.2005. Two of the suits were stated to have reached finality, i.e., O.S.No.8576 of 1978 and O.S.No.8575 of 1978, and the suit in
O.S.No.8574 of 1978, was remanded back to the Trial Court for fresh
consideration and is stated to be still pending.;
