Sir/Ma'am,

There is no impediment in developing of promoting the property as long as every one is on his or her own volition gives the consent. But those residing within the property may demand certain benefits as it is their only residence, which may be made accordingly to smoother the process.

If the property is joint property of family members then the property is to be equally distributed among all the legal heirs and she does not get extra benefit . but without detail discussion proper consult is not possible.

There is no law to get extra share or benefits but as as absolute possession holder she can claim extra portion of owners allocation from the developer and if the developer will agreed to give extra share then it should be mention in the development agreement as agreed by the parties
