Yes. By mentioning "and ors" all the other accused persons would be included in the settlement deed.

Also state, what are the sections that the accused has been charged under?

It's advisable to mention name of both accused and the razinama shall be made through an application filed under section 320(8) Crpc. If it is compoundable offence.

Firslty, whenever a case has been filed only one person name appears in the case, and second one is represented as ANR. or if more than 2 then ORS.

Secondly, but yes, giving so liberal interpretation may cause some misunderstanding of the order.

Thirdly, there is nothing wrong in it, but still would advice to mention both name in the settlement as well as in the court order also if any.

1. Parking spaces are free of FSI and cannot be sold /purchased. Hence the same CANNOT be mentioned in the sale-deed, which would be illegal. IF Parking spaces are FSI-consumed, THEN the same can be recorded in the sale-deed and relevant Stamp Duty has to be paid for the same.

2. Builder usually issues a Parking Allotment Letter, for convenience purposes.

Dear madam,

As per my knowledge both the names should be mentioned individually, so to avoid any future confusion.

You can mention both the names to remove any ambiguity in this regard.

It wont make any difference if you add both the names in the compromise letter.

The raazinama or settlement/compromise deed should contain all the particulars and all the names. Therefore clearly state all the particulars and names so as to avoid future conflicts and confusions.
