How to claim my share in maternal ancestral property


I have ancestral property (Residential) in U.P which belongs to my maternal grandfather and was self acquired by him. After 10 years I have come to know that my mother and her sister were made to sign some NOC type document, 10 years back, by misguiding them, based on which their brother got the entire property transferred on his name including name in Municipal corporation records and now when things have opened up, he is denying ours as well as share of the sisters. He has also refused to provide any of the signed documents by sisters. Can u please help me in guiding as to which process

Iy it is an ancestral property then you can file a case for declaration seeking your portion of the property. If your uncle has mutated the names in the property card and other departments it is very difficult to change the same.

Since your mother would have relinquished her share towards your uncle names, the only remedy now is to file the suit claiming that the signed documents are not signed by your mother or were signed by misguiding them.

Transferring the property in municipal department records will not give ownership to owner. This process is know as mutation which is basically change of taxpayer information.However, mutation of title in government records does not imply that the legal title for the property is in the name of the person in whose name the property tax records have been mutated.
So we suggest you to file suit for partition thereby demanding your mother share.
