The Sarais Act,1867
Section 10. Taking down or repairing ruinous sarais
If a sarais or any part thereof be deemed by the Magistrate of the District to be in a ruinous state, or likely to fall, or in any way dangerous to the persons or animals lodging in or halting at the sarai, he shall give notice in writing to the keeper of the sarais, requiring him forthwith to take down, repair or secure (as the case may be) the sarais or such part thereof as the case may require.
If the keeper do not begin to take down, repair or secure the sarais, or such part as aforesaid within three days after such notice, and complete such work with due diligence, the Magistrate shall cause all or so much of the sarais as he shall think necessary to be taken down, repaired or otherwise secured.
All the expenses so incurred by the Magistrate shall be paid by the keeper of the sarais, and shall be recoverable from him as hereinafter mentioned.
