Can I rent a residential flat for commercial purpose

While renting out my RESIDENTIAL FLAT, can I rent it out for commercial purposes? If so, does the lease agreement have to state that the property is being rented out for commercial purposes? There is no Society in our building and no such by-laws of the society, placing any restrictions whatsoever.

Legally you can't let it for commercial purposes. ..practically if no society is there and no one is there to take objection you can take risk but bmc can take action on its own...also mention aything in lease won't serve any purpose as essentially the property is residential so without change of user can't be used for commercia purposes
