Your mother and brother need to transfer undivided 1/3rd share in the property in your name either by way of sale or settlement. The stamp duty is payable depending on the document executed.

Being relatives, you can take it as gift, there by considerable stamp duty will reduced, so also income tax issues.

In any case of Settlement or Gift, stamp duty is less only as the transaction is only between the blood relations.
If both your brother and mother sell/transfer their 1/3rd of share to you, then you'll be a co-owner of the apartment

Whether a deed of declaration by brother and mother that another brother is also a co owner would make that another brother a co owner?

You can get it by way of gift or family settlement.
