My uncle filed petition before cjjd for his share in ancestral property after 31 years. The 7/12 of the property is on my father's name. Before filing the said petition no notice was served on us by the petitioner. The said said petition is also exceeding limitation. I have to file revision against the order of cjjd, what is the procedure?

Dear Sir, You have done very good thing by preferring appeal. The law is as follows: ===================================================================================== LIMITATION 12 YEARS FOR FILING SUIT FOR PARTITION ARTICLE 106 OF LIMITATION ACT When suit for partition will become barred by limitation?
Article 106 of the Limitation Act provides for period of 12 years limitation for a distributive share of the property of intestate against other person illegally charged with the duty of distributing the estate. Time begins under Article 106 when the legacy and share becomes payable or deliverable. Under Article 110 of schedule¬I of the Limitation Act, suit has to be filed within 12 years by a person excluded from joint family property to enforce a right therein which time commences when the exclusion becomes known to the plaintiff. Even if it is the case of the plaintiff that he was deprived of property of the deceased father by first defendant is concerned, Article¬106 of schedule¬I to the Limitation Act would be attracted. Consent award was declared on 15th April 1986. Decree in terms of consent award was passed in 1991 whereas suit is filed on 6th April 2011. Prayer (b) thus in my view is on the face of it barred by law of limitation.
