@Sudeep9167 found solace in Khushboo’s tweet and shared his rental woes. Sudeep says that his landlord increased the rent by 50 per cent without any warning. And while he vacated his home, he, unfortunately, ended up paying 80 per cent more for the new one. @arya_rohit07 recollects the time his landlord raised the rent from 45k to 70k for a semi-furnished 3BHK. While the landlord finally settled down to 60k, he still gave him a choice to vacate if he doesn’t want to pay the rent.
