There is no concept of deemed tenant under Rent Act unless you claim as.licensee since before 1971. As per law a family member who is residing along with tenant, at the time of his death, can continue the tenancy right. If there are more legal heirs then tenancy right will be subject to between such heirs. If there is dispute amongst the legal heirs then they have to file inter pleader suit for getting declaration. Tenancy right is heritable.
