The case of Mr. Brij Ratan Mohta & Ors versus The State of West Bengal/
Kolkata Municipal Corporation was litigated by Advocate Rajesh Kshetry. He was
handling the case on behalf of the petitioner Brij Ratan Mohta & Ors.
What is the issue?
The issue was Brij Ratan Mohta & Ors., owner of premises No. 173 and 174
Maniktala Main Road, Calcutta comprising of 2 bigha, 9 cottah, 1 chittack 43.sq.ft
land, and had applied for Mutation of his property. Accordingly, Dy. Assessor,
Kolkata Municipal Corporation inspected the premises but wrongly recorded it as
‘R.T.D.H. Land and Tank’ and hence the mutation certificate was also prepared
The petitioners tried all possible means to get the errors corrected in the Mutation
Certificate but the bigwigs of Municipal Corporation exhibited their authority and
flexed their muscles refusing to comply with the petitioner’s request.
Upon contacting Advocate Rajesh Kshetry as their last resort for relief, he bailed
them out with the desired solution of getting the Mutation Certificate corrected.
His appropriate and correct argument as also his ability to nail the respondents
compelled the Ld. Judge to pass necessary directives to the Water Body
Management Board and Kolkata Municipal Corporation to rectify the wrong
doings and correct the Mutation Certificate and ensured that justice is granted to
Advocate Rajesh Kshetry, once again succeeded in providing relief to the
harassed petitioners and rectified the wrong mutated copy correctly, thus adding
another feather to his cap.
