Report No. 83
7.32. Recommendation to amend section 31(3).-
In our view, it is desirable to add, in sub-section (3) of section 31, a specific provision to the effect that a Court may direct sale by public auction or private negotiation. We therefore recommend that in section 31(3), clause (aa) should be inserted as follows after clause (a):
"(aa) that the sale shall be by public auction or private negotiation."
In consequence, section 31(3)(b) should be revised as under:-
"(b) that where the sale is to be by public auction, it shall be to the highest bidder before the Court or some person etc. (rest as in the present section)."
