You've have to file a suit for declaration making DDA the party...a presumption of death arises u/s 108 Evidence Act, if a person is not heard of as being alive by people who would have so heard of him. After the Civil Court Declaration you can get the mutation done.

What Mr. Chugh is referring to is to get a declaration by the Court that ur father is no more (dead). Then u can approach the concerned authorities for mutation of the property records in the name of the person to whom the property is bequeathed by the will.
