Report No. 86

6.3. Controversy as to rights of share-holders.-

There is a controversy related to the rights of shareholders who have applied under section 2. This controversy arises because of the words "any other shareholder". Two views exist on the scope of section 3(1) in this regard. According to the Madras1 and Calcutta2 view, section 3 is confined to cases where leave to buy is applied for by any other shareholder. Its provisions cannot therefore be availed of by the very shareholders who applied under section 2 (i.e. the shareholders owning one half share in the property, as the section now stands). According, however, to the Punjab High Court,3 the shareholders who applied under section 2 can also apply under section 3.
