you will have to give evidence . in addition you will have to examine hand writing expert to show that signature is identical . further you would need to examine a doctor to show that your uncle was of sound mind at time of preparation of gift deed . i do hope that gift deed is properly stamped and registered

The untraceable witness will have to be traced, else it will not be possible for you to prove the settlement deed. Is one of the witnesses a doctor? A doctor will have to testify in the court about the soundness of mind of your uncle. The testimony of a hand writing expert will be very crucial to the fate of the case in view of the fact that one of the witnesses is dead.
