    This is a matter which has confusing Laws.

    On death of the tenant, his/her legal heirs have to make application to landlord for transfer of tenancy in their name . The Landlord can refuse this and the matter then may go to litigation .

    The SC of India had held that tenancy rights cannot be inherited, and that a tenancy contract ends with the tenant’s death.
