The Kerala Wakf Board stands notified as a public authority for the purpose of the Kerala  Buildings (Lease and Rent Control) Act, 1965 vide notifications No.54792/B2/65/PW dated 1-1-1966.  By virtue of this notification, the Wakf Board can evict its tenants from the building owned by it without applying the provisions of the Rent Control Act.  But this procedure applies only to the building of which the wakf Board is the landlord.  The building owned by the various Wakf  registered with the Wakf Board are not covered by the above notification.  The Secretary, Kerala Wakf Board has therefore requested to exempt all types of wakf properties from the application of the Rent Control Act “since wakf properties are for charitable purpose” . Government have accepted the request.  The notification is intended to achieve the above object.
