Our land was converted into new zamindari system when DLR act was introduced for agriculture land to avoid fragmentation. Our land is in possession since great grandfather's time since before 1950. In the agreement to sell ,the date of agreement is not mentioned. And full land is mentioned , belongs to eight main co -sharer but signed by only seven co - sharer . Pl tell is it the right agreement.Pl tell how I can get my share during the lifetime of my father in ancestral property

Answer 1

Your share over the ancestral property devolves upon you since the time of your birth, unlike other forms of inheritance, where inheritance opens only on the death of the owner. Hence, you have a right over your share even during the life time of your father. You can file a suit for declaration and partition along with a petition for interim relief in the form of an injunction against sale, until the suit in question stands decided.
