• Partition of inherited land among children

We are 4 children (3 sons, 1 daughter; all are married and have children). Our ancestral property of agricultural land  and a house in a village is still in the name of our deceased mother. The original property belongs to our grandfather. He had two sons (one of them is our father).  As partition was not done during my father's life time, the title for my father's share was transferred to my mother. Now, she is also no more.

We would now like to partition the land among the four of us. All of us are in good terms (no disputes). What is the procedure to follow?

Apply for mutation of property in your names. If all the legal heirs are into a consensus to divide the land equally by honouring reciprocal rights then application for mutation will be allowed without any legal hassles. Once mutation takes place then make a deed of partition to be signed by all the legal heirs. This will complete the process of division.
