1) if building is in dilapidated condition muncipal corporation can call upon residents to evict the building as it is dangerous for the occupants of building 

2)if some flats are on rent they could not been converted into ownership without your father consent 

3) kindly clarify as to whether your father agreed to convert tenancy rights to ownership rights 

4) it is advisable to form cooperative housing society of residents of the building 

5) redevelopment is a win win situation for owners and tenants

Hi
You should definitely go to court, get the help of a civil lawyer .
Municipality has asked to vacate the premise due to the dilapidated condition then it cannot allow the residents to continue
Is there any builder involved.  if the building is dilapidated and your father owned it , redevelopment is the option and you have the right to do that. 
It looks like some interested persons are involved in it who are eyeing on the property.
Dont agree for any society registration as the occupants will have the legal claim.
You should approach the court  and once the matter is decided you can go ahead and make a redevelopment agreement with any builder, or sell it , whichever the situation the present occupants will get their share

The only remedy is to file a suit for injunction against municipality. It is purely your call if you want to commence a legal battle or not.

If the tenants (on pagdi), create continuous problem in this regard, you may handle the situation legally so that the record has been created.

You can go for redevelopment but do not form a society.

Let the property remain in your names itself.

You can redevelop at that time when you would require the property to be redeveloped, until then keep dodging the tenants about it and let them leave the place one by one.

The society registration can be done with the consent of the majority of owners.

You can obtain an injunction order agaisnt the decision by the tenants to form a society in the premises where your property is situated agaisnt the planned redevelopment program.

You should establish your ownership so that their decision is not going agaisnt your interest. 

You should immediately contact an advocate and file a permanent injunction suit agaisnt them to restrain them from proceeding with the proposed program of redevelopment. .
