My father had 25 acres of farm land. My bother got 10 acres wetland and i got 15 acres dry land. I got 5 acres more as mine was a dry land. The property was divided and registered 20 years ago. Recently because of appreciation of land rates, my brother moved to court to divide the property again such that we both get 12.5 acres. Does court honor his request?
Mere filing of a partition suit (As court fees are nominal) is only as a threat and derive a benefit of compromise. Partition can also be oral and if you are enjoying the property for over 20 years and the revenue records are in your name and both the brothers are in good terms and living close, the case can not succeed.
