Vs. Kundan Lal  INSC 93 (8 February 1994)

1994 SCC Supl. (2) 444
original lease in this case was in favour of Maghi Lal. Where he formed a
partnership with two others and those two partners tendered the rent, certainly
the landlord is not obliged to recognise them as tenant and accept payment of
rent. From this point of view, we find that the ruling in Smt Pushpa Devi v. Milkhi
Ram (Dead) by L.Rs.1 is factually distinguishable because there the tenancy was
in favour of Amar Chand as partner of the firm of M/s Amar Chand Diwan Chand.
Accordingly, the appeal is dismissed. No costs.
