Partition can be made orally- however if it is made in writing, it requires registration. If it is not registered, it cannot be read as evidence in the court of law.
Nevertheless, the document can be used for collateral purposes- like contradicting a person who is saying some other things than what is stated in the document. If the partition was done my metes and bounds at the time of partition in 1987, as per the deed- there is no legal issues as time has lapsed.
Dear sir, Partition made orally in 1987 then it was put into writing, not registered. But the co-sharers were put into possession and katha was done and some of the co-shareres sold thier share of proprety as per the document.That means as perthe unregistered partion deed all the members involved in the partition accepted and acted upon.Can now any one of the member of partition question the legality of the document?
