See the written statement cannot be filed later than 90 days from the day of service of summons as per order8 rule 1 of CPC. However, as per the order of supreme court such a rule is only directory and not mandatory and can be condoned where there is a genuine reason. However, two years is a very long time to show any genuine reason. But even if the application is allowed you should ensure that a heavy cost is imposed on the defendant that is your uncle.
