(2.) The problem which this revision poses is whether the Government can constitute an appellate authority under Section 20 of the Andhra Pradesh Buildings (Lease, Rent and Eviction Control) Act, 15 of 1960, hereinafter called the Act, under Section 35 which confers powers to remove difficulties. The facts leading to this question lie in a narrow compass and can quite briefly be stated.
(3.) The respondent filed an application for eviction on the ground that he requires the premises for his personal occupation. That petition was resisted by the petitioner herein. The Rent Controller, Rajahmundry, dismissed the petition on 27th March, 1962. The respondent therefore went in appeal before the District Judge, East Godavari District at Rajahmundry.
