DUTIES OF WAREHOUSE-MAN
Deterioration of produce in warehouse and their disposal
14. Whenever agricultural produce stored in a warehouse deteriorates from causes beyond the control of the warehouse-man he shall give notice of such deterioration to the depositor asking him to take delivery of such produce immediately after surrendering the receipt duly discharged and paying the warehouse-man his charges.
If the depositor does not comply with the notice within a reasonable time, the warehouse-man may, with the approval of the Director in writing, cause such produce to be removed from his warehouse and sold by public auction at the cost and risk of the depositor. The sale-proceeds thereof shall be paid to the depositor after deducting charges due to the warehouse-man.
