Your uncle corruptly used declaration, as true, in affidavit before public servant i.e. Tehsil, that, your father is alive and his age is 65 yrs old, though he knows it is false declaration and your father is dead. Makes any statement which is false in a declaration is an offence. Yes you can file FIR under Section 199 and 200 of Indian Penal Code against your Uncle.
