A tenant can be evicted if the landlord wants to start his own business, even in a field in which he or she has no prior experience, the Supreme Court ruled on Monday.

A bench of Justices Markandeya Katju and Asok Kumar Ganguly has held that if a landlord has a bonafide need of his rented premises for starting a new business and is able to prove his claim convincingly, he cannot be denied the privilege.
