What is the case in Pune civil court?
Sheetal Suryawanshi has sought damages to the tune of Rs 50.40 lakh and interest of Rs 1.08 lakh in the Pune civil court, stating that her family suffered ‘severe inconvenience and hardships’ due to the sudden eviction.
She stated that, in August 2017, 11 months after she moved in, she was asked to vacate the flat. She finally evacuated the flat by End-October 2017.
As per the agreement the lock-in-period was to be 24 months which was signed between the two parties i.e. Sheetal Suryawanshi & Ranbir Kapoor.
Sheetal Suryawanshi Notice :
“In said notice (email), it was falsely informed by the defendant (Ranbir) that he wants to shift into the said premises, and for this reason, plaintiff (Suryawanshi) was asked to vacate the premises in contravention of the terms and conditions of the leave and license agreement,” the suit states.
Sheetal Suryawanshi alleged that she was ‘maliciously deceived’ by Ranbir to vacate despite of the lock-in-period of 24 months. The suit also informs that, Suryawanshi shot a notice to the actor in January 2018 but did not got any response.
Ranbir Kapoor Response:
On the other hand, Actor Ranbir has denied all allegations and has filed his clarifications to the court, and stated that Suryawanshi was not asked to vacate the flat because he was moving in, reproducing a portion of the leave and license agreement. As per him, the clause in the agreement states about the lock-in period of 12 months and that the licensee (Suryawanshi) cannot terminate it before said period. The portion reproduced in the response also states that if Suryawanshi terminates the agreement before 12 months, she will be liable to pay the rent for the remaining period.
Ranbir’s response further states that “Plaintiff cannot unilaterally change, modify or interpret leave and license agreement to suit her convenience,” he also added that Suryawanshi vacated the flat on her own free will and that she defaulted on rent for 3 months before leaving, hence it has been deducted from the deposit.
“The defendant (Ranbir) is a famous film actor and busy in his occupation. There is no reason for the defendant to deceive the plaintiff in any manner whatsoever and allegations on him by the plaintiff are unfortunate and uncalled for,” states Ranbir’s reply.
When is the next hearing?
The case is scheduled to be heard next on August 28.
