We have a ancestral land which has held by my grandmother and his elder brother. My grand mother has 3 daughters and his elder brother has 5 children. In 1982 my grandmother and his brother decided to sell the property to clear the debt that they have and made an document for mutual understanding(document is not registered in any office). All this has be done without consent of my grand mother's three daughters
My grandmothers brother fooled her and registered the land in his name(not sure waiting for EC)
After Few years My grand mother's brother made a document partitioning all the ancestral land to his 5 children's.
Now only i came to know about all this following are the questions i have
