Once the property is registered under Municiaplity then BLRO certificate is not ncessary.

In your case the mutation is effected in your brother's name. So BL RO is not necessary.  For selling a land only Certified Extract from the record of rights also called Porcha (CS, RS or LR) or JLRO/BLRO (Junior Land Revenue Office / Block Land Revenue Office) Mutation  OR Certificate of Information from the LA Collectorate is required

If your brother possesses the sale deed and mutation certificate then the title can pass safely to the buyer. BLRO mutation certificate is not required.
