No,the Leave and License agreement is not covered under West Bengal Premises Tenancy Act,however you can enter into a leave and license agreement under Indian Easement Act.

A Leave and Licence Agreement, as defined in Section 52 of the Indian Easements Act, 1882, gives the licensee the right to use and occupy the Licensed Premises for a limited duration. A Leave and Licence Agreement does not give tenants any ownership right of the property, nor does it provide the same non-eviction protections given in a Tenancy Agreement, rather the license to occupy can be terminated as per the terms of the agreement or otherwise and licensor can demand possession back from the licensee.
 
Leave and Licence Agreement of 11 months execute irrespective to Rent Control Act or Premises Tenancy Act which is under the provision Section 52 of the Indian Easements Act, 1882.
