It is valid,the partnership agreeement has to state the capital contribution and share distribution from all the partners.

I would like to know if the capital was contributed only by one partner who had the proprietorship firm, then share can be equally distributed among all the partners or there is any dependency with capital contribution of each partner with share.If in future any litigation arise can I claim the major share.

Regarding query of Ms. Susmita Sinha

The capital contribution and profit sharing are two diffrent issues. The person not investing any capital may get the major share in the profits of the firm. There is no bar.
