It is within the rights of the Municipal Corporation of Delhi while ordering a demolition of the unauthorised illegal construction of the building. However, since such construction is over two decades you can seek for a petition before the Court to prevent the demolition of such building. The High Court has from time to time passed decisions against the Municipal Corporation of Delhi concerning demolition of buildings. In the eyes of the High Court, such demolition only leads to hardship to the general public, hence it is jusified to seek remedy. Read More

  You should make a police complain as soon as possible. Under the Indian Penal Code, 1860, any unlawful entry into property in the possession of another with an intent to insult, annoy or intimidate another person is a criminal offence. You are legally in possession even though you may not physically occupy the plot. At the same time, a suit should be filed against the persons involved against such trespass. This will not easily yield a remedy but is important for the maintenance of your legal rights. In such suit, you should also ask for a declaration that the property belongs to your father and not any other person. The reason for this suggestion is that the land mafia then cannot legally transfer the property without your rights being considered.[1] Also, it may be helpful to file a caveat in the court i.e. a document that requires the court to give you a notice in case there is any suit filed in relation to this property so that if any person tries to deal with the land and there is any kind of litigation, you can join in and agitate your rights. Although under the law, you have the right to use reasonable force to eject the trespassers, I don't think while dealing with the land mafia this is a feasible or realistic option. Section 52 of the Transfer of Property Act, 1882 provides: During the pendency in any court having authority within the limits of India excluding the State of Jammu and Kashmir] Government or established beyond such limits by the Central Government of any suit or proceedings which is not collusive and in which any right to immovable property is directly and specifically in question, theproperty cannot be transferred or otherwise dealt with by any party to the suit or proceeding so as to affect the rights of any other party thereto under any decree or order which may be made therein, except under the authority of the court and on such terms as it may impose.

If your neighbour is deliberately causing damage to your property, you can file an FIR with the local police station against the neighbour. An FIR can be filed under Section 425 of the Indian Penal Code on the grounds of 'mischief'. Section 425 of the IPC states that:  Whoever with intent to cause, or knowing that he is likely to cause, wrongful loss or damage to the public or to any person, causes the destruction of any property, or any such change in any property or in the situation thereof as destroys or diminishes its value or utility, or affects it injuriously, commits "mischief".

Depending on the specific state and value of the property damage, vandalism is either a misdemeanor or felony offense. Penalties typically include fines, imprisonment in county jail, or both. In addition, a person convicted of vandalism is frequently ordered to wash, repair or replace the damaged property (known as "restitution"), and/or participate in programs to clean up graffiti and other forms of vandalism. Moreover, a parent of a minor child may be ordered to pay fines resulting from their child's vandal behavior under a "parental liability" theory. Read More
