1. Repeated query,
2. Your grandfather is entitled to maintenance from your father despite your claim that you do not want your ancestral property,
3. Your father is legally bound to maintain his father, if he is unable to maintain himself & the amount will be decided by the Court.
moraly and legally also son is duty bound to lookafter and maintain his parents.if father has no means or insufficient means to maintain himself he can claim maintenance from son.court will direct accordingly.
