My deceased father purchased 10 acres land from his self earn money on my name when I was minor in year 1975.During that time my father was staying with his joint family (with my uncles and grand father). In year 1990 my father joint family was partitioned but my grand father did not give his self earned property to my father instead he had told him to keep my father self earned 10 acres land (which is on my name).
After my father family partition, my father again purchased 6 acres land on my younger brother and 7 acres land on my mother name from his self earned money in year 2000 and my father do not keep any property on his name.
We recently got into dispute and go for partition but younger brother demanding 50 percent of 10acres land from me as he claims that my 10 acres land came from my fathers joint family during partition in year 1990 and he do not want to share his 6 acres land with me. All effort have failed to convince my brother to share property equally.
1) Is 10 acres land on my name considered as self acquired property or joint family/ancestral property?
2) Is my brother has got right to claim 50% portion of my 10 acres land? if yes, can I claim 50% of lands from brother through court of Law?
3) Mother is staying with me, Is my brother has got right to claim portion of land from my mother?
Can you please help me to take this matter through court of Law.
