Before Nemai Chandra Kumar, 2015 (2) SCALE 657, the last concluded judgment of the SC on the issue of Thika Tenancy, there was of course, Ramdas Bansal v. Kharag Singh Baid, (2012) 2 SCC 548 pronounced by Hon’ble Justice Altamas Kabir. In that case, entitlement to a portion carved out of 91, Mahatma Gandhi Road and 6, Sambhu Chatterjee Street, was in question. The two addresses in Kolkata together comprised lands on a portion whereof a building was once erected known as the Grace Cinema Hall. In 1893, Grace Cinema Hall was Curzon Theatre and Mahatma Gandhi Road was Harrison Road. Oranges is all that you will get now.
