  1. The act looks only into the benefit of landlords.What about the tenants??the government will make the situation of tenants horrible.They need to remove the act.Thy are just thinking about the landlords.


  2. There should be policy for converting the pagdi houses to ownership by paying some lump sum rent ,this was done in one of the case in charni road where people paid 100 months rent and got there place as ownership


  3. Government should stop landlords who don’t have property card in there name form taking rent .this will bring lots of revenve to the BMC which could again be used for well being of Tenants and redevelopment by mhada. In pagdi system landlords take 33% from the sale which should be prohibited as this become major reason for tenants harassment ,many cases are pending with the courts for same instead the money to be deposited with BMC for redevelopment of the building and the area that will benefit the whole society.
