  5. Delhi Rent Control Act, 1958 (59 of 1958) Section 3(c) - The intention behind section 3(c) of the DRC Act is that a premise which fetches a rent of Rs.3500/- per month should be exempt and that protection should be restricted to buildings fetching a rent of less than Rs.3500/- per month - Further, it emerges that if a tenant who has let out a property to a sub tenant is allowed the benefit of Rent control legislation, a serious anomaly would ensue - The tenant would get protection, leading to a strange situation where he cannot be evicted except on limited grounds specified in the DRC Act and that too only before the Rent Controller, whereas he could evict his tenants, that is, sub tenants by giving a simple notice under Section 106 of the Transfer of Property Act and then move a Civil Court.
