As per the Mumbai Rent Control Act, sub tenant can get protection only when the premises or any part thereof have been lawfully sub-let  or where sub-tenancy is permitted by a contract between the landlord and the tenant.

Further, as per the act, if the landlord requires the property for his bonafide need, then the tenant can be removed after the re- development.
