Summon service problem

Its going to be a year and half when a probate petiton was filed in a Calcutta court . Summons were issued to sibling and sent by court to Mumbai.   The AD came back "unclaimed"  After several months, another attempt was made to serve and this time a servant of the sibling signed which was not accepted by judge. A third attempt sahed that summon was delivered but court wants proof from postal dept.   an RTI was filed and with lot of hassle, an initial response was sent by postal dept. No final sheet was sent. Now, my lawyer says she will have to file a petition for "substituted " service so she can send summon to siblings shop with permission of judge.  

Interestingly, India c an send rocket to Moon but an Indian court can not deliver a probate court summon to a sibling in 2 years .

Please provide advice and suggestions as to what are my options at this point?
