Asked 4 years ago in Civil Law from Puri., Odisha
your case had a chequered history . it is necessary to go through case papers filed in various courts to advice . without going through the suit papers we cannot advice . whether partition deed was duly stamped and regsitered . 

it appears that option was given to sister to exercise right of pre emption but she has failed  to deposit  the sale price in court . the court may permit the sister  to deposit the purchase    the dwelling house at current market price .
