Before proceeding further, it is necessary to notice on what grounds Ahad Mir had sought ejectment of the petitioners i.e. Gani War S/O Ramzan War and Gani Dar S/O Gaffar Dar R/O Nowpora Kalan, tehsil Sopore. It appears that Ahad Mir, respondent No. 4 had sought ejectment of petitioners herein on the ground that they were not protected tenants but were tenants at will - - they were not good tenants because had not paid the rent - - share of produce and had accordingly sought remedy in terms of Section 46 read with Section 47(1)(b) and 48 of the Tenancy Act.
