1. It seems to us that the question of the assessment of the estate is a, matter of no relevance for determining the right to relief under Madras Act IV of 1938. The estate is not a person and if it 'is not a person, it cannot be an agriculturist by the terms of the definition in Section 3 of the Act. We are not here concerned with the question of a claim by beneficiaries under a trust to relief under the Act in respect of liabilities imposed on them through the trustee. Nor are we concerned with a decree against the executors personally. The decree is only against the estate in the hands of the executors and there is no provision of the Act under which such an impersonal entity as an estate can claim relief. In fact the estate is a charitable estate and would seem to be expressly excluded by the terms of Section 3(1) of the Act. The appeal is dismissed with costs of respondents 1 to 3.
