Dear Querist,

Though the period of limitation stands at 12 years. You can take benefit of S.17 of the Limitation Act, the period of limitation which is for 12 years would commence from the time when you actually found the documents or could have reasonably with due dilgence could have found the documents. 

Feel free to talk!
