You are liable to pay father debts only to extent you inherit his property 

2) your personal property would not be attached 

4) amicable  settlement is best option 

5) bank can settle for principal amount under OTS   Scheme

1. The bank can file a suit for recovery of money against the legal heirs of the deceased borrower if they have inherited any property from him. The properties so inherited can be attached in execution of the decree.

2. Your self acquired property cannot be attached under any circumstances,

3. Bank lawyers are habitual of threatening the borrowers and their heirs as they know that the road to recover the money is not easy for them.

1.  For recovery of loan, the bankers my attach any asset lying on the deceased debtor's name.

2.  No legal action can be taken agaisnt you for your father's loan liabilities.

3.  NO.

4.  The action will depend on the bank's decision.

5.  You have to negotiate the same with the bank 


6.  Since there is no action on you, as a legal heir if you want to acquire his properties then you may fight back through proper court of law. 


  7.  He cannot threaten you.  Politely inform him that next time when he behaves this way, you will file defamation case agaisnt him for his unlawful activities against you.


8. It depends on how the bank decides on this after you make a request in writing.

1.  Please note that only the properties lying on the deceased's name shall be attached and not the property which do not belong to him absolutely.



2.  It depends on what amount the bank agrees to this and also an upfront amount and installment etc. 



3.  The loan may be  unsecured but it depends on how bank will initiate the recovery action.

The mortgage can be created even by delivery of xerox copy of the title deed if the deed of mortgage was executed. If the mortgage has not been created then the bank can only file a suit for recovery of money, and then attach the property in execution proceedings.
