Dear Adv Kapil,
10 acres land (registered on my name) and 15 acres land (share given to his brother) was purchased by father with his self earned money but my father was staying with joint family till 1972.During family partition (year 1972) my grandfather did not give his self earned property (60 acres) to my father instead he gave 10 acres (which is on my name) to my father as his share. Remaining 15 acres land earned by father gave to his 5th younger brother. And my grandfather and panchas had made family settlement agreement paper in panchayat and grandfather 5 sons had signed the agreement paper but not registered yet.
After family partition in year 1972, my father had purchased 7 acres land on my mother name and 7 acres land on my younger brother name in year 1983 from his self earned money (income from land and business)
Now 3 of us (myself, mother and brother) wants to make division of properties (10+7+7) through court of law.Hence dI want to know whether we need my father family settlement agreement paper (1972)? if yes, is unregistered paper is valid? if not, what is best way to file a partition suit.
My aim is not to create any legal problem in other 5 uncles (my father brothers) families as they are leading happy life since 40 years.and I respect my father dicison taken during their family partition in year 1972.This dispute is only between me and my brother
Does all 3 properties (10+7+7) comes under joint family property?
Thanks a lot.
