Shop given on rent under a permanent lease agreement for 25 years

My father owns a house, having a shop in the front, beside the entrance of the house. The shop is in our ownership, but given in the permanent lease rental, by the previous owner of the house, before we moved to this house, before approximately 25 years, at the rent of Rs. 598/- per month. The lessee is no more alive, and his son now runs the shop in his place. He pays the monthly rental on the regular bases. The question is that, after the lessee's death, does the tenancy shifted to the lessee's son by default or he has to do any legal proceedings? Is there any way to increase the rental or get back the possession of the shop?

Yes on the death of the lessee, the son steps in his shoe and he have the same rights as original lessee.
however if he is working some where and donot need the shop for his lively hood you can get it vacated.

Further you can file suit for eviction on the ground of Bonafide need and get you property vacated .
