Can a Deed of family settlement for EQUAL Distribution of Ancestral property by Father-and-Karta of a Hindu Joint Family among all its 6 coparcenars (including Karta) be made by the said Father-and-Karta, when a case for partition has already been filed in a lower court, by one of the coparcenors ( ie his Son) for partition, thereby disrupting the joint family status of the family.
There is nothing wrong. In any case, one has already demanded partition. The Karta has only done partition. The pending court case will not come in the way of effecting such a partition. You also did not state that there was any stay order from the Court.
