Brother doing construction on ancestral property without my consent?


I live in bombay. Me and my brother have an ancestral house in paharganj. Few weeks back my asked me to sign a NOC which I denied. Now from a reliable source i came to know that he is doing some construction in our ancestral home of which i had no idea and also didn't give consent for the same? How can i stop him from going ahead with such construction?

If you are parents have expired the house belongs 50%  each of you two.

Since your house is ancestral, your brother cannot sell or construct the house without your permission. If he is trying to sell or construct you can send him legal notice, thereafter file a suit for declaration and permanent injunction for stopping him from construction.

The interim injunction will be granted in your favor thereby restraining him from constructing any portion of the house.
