CHENNAI: A division bench of Madras High Court headed by Chief Justice Munishwar Nath Bhandari on Friday stayed the operation of a single judge’s order on rental arrears the Mylapore Club owed to the Hindu Religious and Charitable Endowments (HR&CE) department.
The bench also ordered HR&CE to remove the seal affixed on the club as it has paid Rs 1 crore towards rental arrears. Directing the club to submit fresh application for fixation of rent, the bench asked the HR&CE authorities to complete the process of revising the rent within two months.
The HR&CE claimed that the club owed a total of Rs 4.77 crore. The club had taken the premises for lease from Mylapore Kapaleeswarar temple.
