Monthly tenancy with provision for annual increase of rent does not require registration

The rent note contained only monthly rent and payment month by month.

As per law there shall be a presumption that the tenancy in the present case is monthly tenancy.

When the clauses of rent note are cumulatively read, the intention of the tenant is more than clear that tenancy was only monthly tenancy, which could have been terminated on default of payment of rent by 5th day of any month or by notice of one month. The rent deed did not confer any right to tenant to continue in the tenancy for a period of more than one year nor it can be said that tenancy was created for a period of more than one year.
