tender on or to agent"
102. Where the person on or to whom any notice or
tender is to be served or made under this Chapter
does not reside in the district in which the
mortgaged property or some part thereof is situate,
service or tender on or to an agent holding a
general power-of-attorney from such person or
otherwise duly authorised to accept such service or
tender shall be deemed sufficient.
Where no person or agent on whom such notice should be served
can be found or is known to the person required to serve the
notice, the latter person may apply to any Court in which a suit
might be brought for redemption of the mortgaged property, and
such Court shall direct in what manner such notice shall be
served, and any notice served in compliance with such direction
shall be deemed sufficient:
Provided that, in the case of a notice required by section
83, in the case of a deposit, the application shall be made to
the Court in which the deposit has been made.
Where no person or agent to whom such tender should be made
can be found or is known to the person desiring to make the
tender, the latter person may deposit, in any Court in which a
suit might be brought for redemption of the mortgaged property
the amount sought to be tendered, and such deposit shall have
the effect of a tender of such amount.
