Pagdi system landlord not accepting rent what should we do

30-Jun-2023 (In Landlord/Tenant Law)
My 3 brothers and i have 2 rooms in pagdi system, I have been staying there since 1993. We are 4 brothers, 2 brothers have 1 room, another brother and I have 1 room. I use this room whereas other brothers keep visiting sometimes. I used to live here and work from the same place till 2000, after 2000 I just have my office there. It is a residential building, but all the rooms in the building are commercial offices. My electricity bill is also commercial. In the year 93-94, I used to get rent receipt of 2 names per room. Landlord changed in 94, after that I only used to get one name per room on the rent receipt, I didn't bother nor did I object to this change thinking it's a shorthand. This landlord also got changed and there was a third landlord, I told him that there were 2 names previously, after that he stopped taking rent. My rent is paid till 31-3-2014, after that he hasn't taken rent. I had sent him the rent cheque for both the rooms, which he refused. What should I do?

Your landlord is trying to build a Base for himself to file an eviction suit against you on the ground that you have stopped paying rent to him and may allege many other false grounds for eviction against you. You can deposit the same in the court by making an application to do so.
