Eviction of tenant is lengthy process of laws,however you can send a Legal Notice to the present tenant calling him to quit and vacate the rented room for your own use,if he would not comply as per notice then file a Suit for Eviction on reasonable requirement and default grounds as per provision of West Bengal Premised Tenancy Act.

1. Do not accept rent form legal heir of original tenant.
2 If you do not acknowledge him as fresh tenant by accepting rent then after 5 years he looses all right of tenancy.
3. In the meantime you can file suit for eviction of tenant on the ground of reasonable requirement.

A tenant who does not pay the agreed rent has no right to occupy the leased premises. You should issue a legal notice to the son of your tenant and ask him to vacate the premises. If he does not abide by the notice then file a case for eviction in the court.
