Mumbai’s famous ice cream parlour told to vacate premise part of Brabourne Stadium

Khushi Shah – Mumbai Uncensored, 19th May 2022

Iconic Rustom ice cream parlour was recently ordered small causes court in Mumbai, to vacate its premises at the North Stand Building, part of the Brabourne Stadium, within two months. The decision resulted from a 26 year old suit filed in 1996 by the Cricket Club of India (CCI).

The story began in 1953 with K. Rustom and his family selling bars of ice-cream on beautiful glass and porcelain plates to tourists and families of Marine Drive, but several years and disappearing plates later, they came up with what they’re now best known for their ice-cream biscuits. K Rustom was the first tenant of the reclaimed land from Marine Drive to Churchgate. He bought the property at the rate of 1 Rs per square yard. At the small causes court, CCI had submitted that they were landlords of the said property under the Bombay Rent Act. 

The land, upon suggestion from Lord Brabourne, was decided to use the space for CCI.The CCI told the court that they “need” the space.It was submitted that the club requires the premises for its activities. It said that the list of the club’s members has gone up substantially in the last 14 years and it needs more space to meet the growing requirement of the members. It said that it wants to start a coffee shop at the suit premises for its members as the current one at CCI is insufficient.

However, it has fought till the end, ensuring that the 84-year-old shop doesn’t shut down.
After the latest development in the long-standing legal battle, the news has sparked talk of a shutdown of the ice cream shop, with some urging Mumbaikars to “go and eat your last ice cream at K Rustom”.

The property in dispute comprises 3,070 square feet and a mezzanine floor of 950 square feet. The family has said that they will be filing an appeal against the order. The CCI submitted that a substantial portion of the premises were not in use by Rustom. CCI claimed that it was being paid a monthly rent of Rs 527 per month, ‘far below the standard rent’. Rustom replied by calling it an “incredible” statement as it does not mention the payment of electricity and water charges. 

The owner also claims that they have been a tenant of the suit premises prior to the declaration of the Second World War “when premises were freely available” in Mumbai. Rustom also denied that a portion of the premises is not in use and said that both the ice-cream shop and a shop selling readymade clothes were working full time. It also said that it has no other premises to do business and will be out on the streets if asked to evict the premises.

After the latest development in the long-standing legal battle,, the Court of Small Causes directed Rustoms “to hand over quiet, vacant and peaceful possession” of its premises. 

“It is already held that the plaintiffs have proved that, the suit premises are reasonably and bonafide required by the plaintiffs for their personal use for club activities and no hardship will be caused to the defendants if the decree of ejectment is passed in favour of the plaintiffs therefore, they are entitled to recover quit, vacant and peaceful possession of the suit premises,” Judge Todkar ordered.

Kamaljeet Singh – Mumbai Uncensored, 22th June 2022

On July 1, the tax-deductible At Source (TDS) will involve the advantage companies welcome to promote sales, social media influencers, and physicians. The Central  Direct Tax Commission (CBDT) has published directions on the applicability of the new provisions. 

 Social media influencers are required to pay a 10% TDS  if the product given to promote is held by the influencer. If you return the device to the company after work is complete, TDS will not apply to the product. 

 “Whether this (a product offered for social media promotion) is beneficial or accidental depends on the facts of the case. If the benefit or benefit is a product such as a car, mobile phone, costume, cosmetics, etc., used for the purpose of providing the service, and then returned to the manufacturer, it will not be treated as a benefit. Or benefit for the purposes of Section 194R (TDS Rule) of the Law, “CBDT said. 

Co-Treasurer Kamresh C. Burshney explained the benefits of free drug samples for doctors, international flights, and free  Indian Premier League (IPL) tickets for transactions.

He highlighted that these items will not be sold and should not be disclosed and hidden when filing an income tax return. 

Section 194R applies to sellers who offer cash or all kinds of incentives such as cars, computers, gold coins, mobile phones, etc. in addition to discounts. 

CBDT clarifies that Section 194R applies to the distribution of free samples to hospitals for doctors who receive free samples of medicines while employed in ṣthe hospital. As an employer, the hospital can treat such a sample as a taxable employee benefit and deduct the tax in Section 192. In such cases, a point of 20,000 will be pictured across from the hospital. 

For doctors operating as hospital consultants who receive free samples, TDS  ideally involves the hospital first and then requires a section tax deduction. 194R related to a self-subsistent doctor.
