My father is aged 80, he has partition deed registered in the year 1983 with 1 rupee stamp duty with all heirs signed. My father say that original stamp duty deed is with his eldest brother and this is what he and his 2nd elder brother got as deed. In the deed it is mentioned as duplicate but should be considered as original. What does that mean. Need clarification for following questions. Kindly help me to understand please
1. Is it common practice in India when partition happen between brothers the original deed will be hold by eldest brother and others will have agreement copy?
2. Without original cant we sell or do any registration in future?
3. What if eldest brother refuse to share the original deed to younger brothers?
Thank you in advance
