VERSUS
RANGAPPA KALAKKA THOLA UDATAR Respondents

JUDGEMENT

- (1.) The plaintiff (appellant) seeks to set aside a sale of his immoveable property under a distress for rent.
(2.) It is contended that, because a bid equal to the amount of the arrears was made for a portion of the plaintiff's property which had been so distrained for arrears of rent, the landlord's claims was thereby satisfied under Section 33 of Act VIII of 1865 though the amount bid was not paid; and also that a subsequent sale of the rest of his property was illegal as the only remedy lay in. taking proceedings against the defaulting purchaser. We cannot agree with this contention see Anandra v Bapuji V/s. Shekh Baba I.L.R. 2 Bom. 562. The arrear is only satisfied by a sale when the amount bid is paid, till when the debt is still subsisting Khiroda Moyee Dossee V/s. Golam Somdanee 21 W.R. (C.R.) 149. Notice to the plaintiff of the second sale was not necessary under Section 39 of Act VIII of 1865.
(3.) There was no allegation in the plaint nor proof that the requirements of the law in regard to publication of the second sale were not complied with. Even if there were any irregularity in that; respect, we are of opinion that that would not be a sufficient ground for setting aside the sale.;
