September 2008 and Rupali died on 30th November 2004. Their
death certificates are on record. Both died intestate.

4. Mahendra was a worker with Mumbai Municipal Corporation
(BMC). There are some dues i.e. Provident Fund, Gratuity fund,
Family pension, etc. that are owed to him.

5. Sahil’s maternal grandparents are alive and are not willing to
look after the minor. Since the father’s death, the minor has been
living with the Petitioner and his wife at the their residence at
Tagore Nagar, Municipal Market, Building 1/2, 1st Floor, Hariyali
Village, Ganesh Mandir Road, Vikhroli East, Mumbai 400 083. The
Petitioner and his family are looking after the minor. The Petitioner,
therefore, seeks to be appointed as a guardian of the property and
person of the minor without security, remuneration or royalty. Sahil
is studying in Std X at Veekays English High School, Vikhroli East,
Mumbai. The Petitioner is also an employee with the Mumbai
Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai (MCGM). The
Petitioner states that he is ready and willing to look after the well-
being, education and shelter of the minor. The interest of the
Petitioner is not adverse to that of the minor.

6. I am satisfied that there is no reason to compel the issue of a
notice under Section 11 of the Guardians and Wards Act, 1890.

of prayer (a) and (b) which read as follows:
