  • ansStating the fact you can send the complaint to the concerned Police station by Speed Post or registered A,D, Further you can also seek declaration from the Court in respect of missing of your father since last 15 years. Once you get the declaration from the court you can bring the name of all the legal heirs on the property card i.e. revenue record

  • ansIn India civil court can grant a declaration to the effect that a person is presumed dead if he is no proof that he was heard of being alive during last 7 years. It can be termed as being declared dead in absentia or legal presumption of death.

    Hope this serves your purpose.

    You can check section 107 n 108 of Indian Evidence Act for the legal basis for such declaration, if need be.
