An uncle of mine happens to be a retired sergeant-major from the Indian Army. He owns a 2-BHK apartment in Kolkata. Back in 2010, he had rented out this apartment on leave and licence basis for 11 months. Subsequently, the arrangement was renewed for another term of 11 months. At the end of that period, he asked the tenant to vacate the premises, but he has failed to comply till date and nor has he paid any rent for the past 7 months. The rent was more than the limit prescribed by the West Bengal Premises Tenancy Act. What are the avenues open to him under such circumstances to get back possession of his apartment and also recover the rent due to him?

My father owns a house in Kolkata since 2006 in his name, where our family has been residing. In 2012, he received a notice for the Kolkata Municipal Corporation that the property tax payable on our house has been increased to almost twice as it was earlier. I heard of the Lok Adalat and we have filed an appeal there already against this notice. However, we are yet to get a date for hearing of my case. Meanwhile, the Corporation has issued a second notice to my father urging him to pay the arrear tax as per the estimate of the Corporation. What I want to know is, would he have to pay the arrear in full as they want him to before we get a hearing at the Lok Adalat?
