first of all thanks to all who contribute to the forumns and impart their knowledge on a public domain.
My grandfather had given a open piece of land to neighbour for doing buissness almost 40+ yrs back. the property was later transferred to my grandmother who is not a literate person. with passage of time the neighbour's sons started taking her thumb impression on a receipt of rent payment Rs 15/- for it.
eventually my dad purchased the property from my grandmother. and filed a case against the occupants of property as tresspasser around 20 yrs back. which due to lack of information and few other reasons was denied and the tresspassers were considered as tenant as per the judgement.
now almost after 10 yrs. i would like to utilise that piece of open land to start my own buissness . The third generation of the tresspasser/tenant is still occupying the premises ( there were four sons of first generation out of which 3 got their own seperate business and the one occupying have 3 sons out of 1 have his own seperate shops nearby ) .
My questions are.
1) do i / my father (current owner of property ) need to send the notice for eviction ? if yes to whom should it be addressed.
2) is my requirement to start my own business with my brother in law considered as bonafied in eyes of LAW.
3) I am from saurashtra gujarat. . which rent act is applicable there.?
4) Any chance that we can get possession back of our property and if yes I would request if you could help with the exact section of the Act that we need to invoke to get the results.
