Dear Mr. Ajit singh cheema,
U/s 2 of the partition act 1893, the court power to sell comes if the suit of partition is filed before year 1893. it is given below.
2. Power of Court to order sale instead of division in partition suits
Whenever in any suit for partition in which, if instituted prior to the commencement of this Act, a decree for partition might have been made, it appears to the Court that, by reason of the nature of the property to which the suit relates, or of the number of the shareholders therein, or of any other special circumstance, a division of the property cannot reasonably or conveniently be made, and that a sale of the property and distribution of the proceeds would be more beneficial for all the shareholders, the Court may, if it thinks fit, on the request of any of such shareholders interested individually or collectively to the extent of one moiety or upwards, direct a sale of the property and a distribution of the proceeds.
If suit for partition filed in year 2012, can court give order to sell?
