A 17(8) order is the one in which the court directs a Tenant to submit rent in the court of law. The tenant is bound to submit rent before 15th day of every month unless specifically ordered by the rent controller to be furnished before 15th.
The tenant is bound to furnish rent as and when directed by the court. On the other hand the tenant has no powers to violate the order of court once 17(8) orders are passed.
If a tenant doest comply with the orders of court, the court cannot spare such tenant even for a single day. The court is bound to pass orders under 17(9) of IRRO 2001 to evict the tenant.
