First of your query is silent on following facts:

Whose name is the pagdi property?

If the same is on brothers name and all rent receipts on your brothers name then the landlord and evict you.

However  if you could pay a Pagdi equalling a substantial percentage of the market value (85 to 90%) of the premises then the landlord might transfer property in your name.

Please provide complete facts , so that we can provide you detailed legal advise
