Eviction only when property sublet without the permission of the landlord.

The Supreme Court in the matter Bhairon Sahai (D) vs. Bishamber Dayal (D) decided on 18th July, 2017, while dealing with a petition under Section 14(1)(b) of Delhi Rent Control Act 1958 has held that Eviction on the grounds of subletting can be sought by a landlord only where the tenant sublets, assigns or otherwise parts with possession without his consent. Parting with the possession of the premises without consent of the landlord was sufficient for eviction of the tenant without getting into the question of sub-letting or assignment.
