Click here to view full judgement.
(1.) THIS appeal under Section 17(1) of the Securitisation and Reconstruction of Financial Assets and Enforcement of Security Interest Act, 2002 (in short "SRFAESI Act") pertains to Office Premises Nos. 201 to 208 on second floor, Kimatrai Building, 77/79, Maharshi Karve Road, Mumbai-400002.
(2.) The appellants and respondent Nos. 4 and 5 are co-owners of the properties.
The appellants had impugned notice dated 26th February, 2004 under Section 13(2) of the SARFAESI Act and also action of taking possession of the property hereunder. During the course of arguments, said issue is not pressed into service obviously because of limitation and because the respondent Bank produced record showing that the appellants themselves had handed over peaceful and vacant possession of the office premises. However, second part of the Appeal viz. challenge to the auction and acceptance and confirmation of the sale survives in this matter. The only ground is that the respondent Bank had fixed reserved bid at Rs. 1,43,29,000/- but sold the property for Rs. 1,01,15,000/- to the respondent No. 3. Thus, the sale was for much less amount than the reserve bid but without obtaining consent of the Borrower as contemplated by Rule 9(2) of the Security Interest (Enforcement) Rules, 2002.
(3.) THE respondent Nos. 1/2 by reply at Exh. 9 have controverted the above contention by submitting that the highest offer received was for Rs. 1,01,15,000/-. THE respondent Nos. 1/2 accepted the offer and also issued Sale Certificate during the pendency of the appeal and have also executed registered Sale Deed.;
