Landlord isn't accepting rent since 4 years and I am staying in pagadi

I'm staying here since 24 years in pagdi system, landlord isn't accepting rent since 4 years because the rooms are in my brother's name and I'm using it. My brother keeps visiting me sometimes, but I'm the one who is permanently using it. I have sent him cheque via post, but he isn't depositing the rent. What should I do?

Just wait for notice of demand from landlord. If notice is received by your brother, u may send a reply through ur brother along with rent by cheque and explaining that u r part of tenants family and living with them. U must ensure that rent b paid in 90 days from the date of receipt of demand notice
