  1. Answer to Question No 7 is not absolutely correct. The Ground of own use under section 11 (3) is not available to tenant who is in occupation of the building from 1940 (this is a personal right and the heirs of the tenant will not get this right)

  2. what about the impact of Section 11(17) at present
