Can Landlord or Society cut off Electricity / Power ?Posted: November 6, 2014
NO – said the Bombay High Court in a 2011 Judgement.
Justice Godbole observed that it was not contested that the Daves were in possession of the flat. “In this situation, the law is well established that a person in possession of immovable property even when his possession is wrongful, cannot be dispossessed without following due procedure prescribed by law.”
The court has observed that Daves “will be entitled to obtain an independent electricity supply and the landlord is restrained from raising any objection for such independent electricity supply.”
