Please provide exact dates, and date of last credit in the accounts, period of loan sanctioned etc.  Contact a local advocate as several things are to be looked into to revive such assumed expiry of limitation period.

  1. What is the nature of the loan ie? Pro-note based or Stamped Agreement based?
  2. Date of Pro-note and/or Agreement
  3. Date of the last amount paid by the borrower and whether the payment is made by the borrower himself duly with a signed letter/pay in slip?
  4. Date of Borrower's Death and when the financier came to know about the death of the borrower.
  5. Date of the Mortgage Transaction and whether in the mortgage

Without these details, it is difficult to give proper guidance.



The mortgaged property is under charge of the Bank/ financier, accordingly they have every right to proceed against LRs of deceased borrower.



1. Loans are agreement based of agreement- a. KCC loan-18-06-2007 b.tractor loan-20-02-2009 repayments in both the loans

4.Borrower deceased on- 18-12-2019 of mortgage- 18-02-2009




Retired employee.

Who is the financier?  This is most unlikely in financial institutions like Bank,.  Whether there was a Debt acknowledgment or exchange of notices and replies are important,. Still, there is a limitation period as the loan is backed up by a mortgage agreement.


1. For KCC loan - AOD not available, mortgage not available.

2. For tractor loan - AOD not available but mortgage is within the limitation period

3. As the borrower (deceased) is same for both loans, can it possible to file mortgage suit against legal hiers of borrower for total dues to bank from both loans or only for amount due from one loan which backed by mortage, plz guide.

4. property mortgaged for second loan is same charged to bank at the time of availing first loan






Retired employee.

The bank can exercise the right of general lien on all securities, whether the charge is available for other loans or not.   It is better to compromise with banker instead of spoiling the credit rating and image in society.

Reply hiers of borrower not ready to execute AOS hiers denied banks offer under OTS also 

3.clarification required- whether the fisrt loan can be added while filing mortgage suit or not?
