Can I evict my brother and his wife from my house

My brother and his wife had been residing with my parents and me since their marriage in November 2022. In November 2023, my mother executed a gift deed, transferring the property to me as the elder son. Presently, I no longer wish for my brother and his wife to continue living in my house. Despite both of them being employed in government services, they have been residing at their respective places of assignment since their marriage. Throughout the year, they have only visited the house on two occasions.

Am I legally entitled to file a suit for a permanent injunction to prevent them from entering my property? If so, what legal remedies are available to them in response to such an action?

Common place in appartment

Few days back someone from my society had installed a JIoFiber receiver above our roof without our permission. When I complained about it to the society, the secretary told me that it was installed on the wall of the water tank and according to him it’s a common place for the society to use. However, that portion of the tank is above our apartment.

In relation to this case I would like to know the following.

1. I would like to know whether I can claim that the part of the water tank which is above my apartment is a part of my property or not?

2. That Jio subscriber stays on the ground floor and the receiver was installed on the roof of the 3rd floor. Does the roof above the 3rd floor belongs to the owners of the 3rd floor only or it also belongs to the owners of other floors of my apartment building?

Map showing wrong dimension and area of my land

Hello, sir, I have a property with an area of 4380 hectares. However, I am facing an issue as the map is showing less area than it should, and the patwari is allocating less space. If we are constructing, he is suggesting to do so based on the revenue record, but he has advised us to get the map corrected. Now, I am not sure what to do in this matter. Initially, he created confusion by suggesting that this property is not yours; it belongs to someone else, and it is barren. However, he is now saying to correct the map. Additionally, the current map has incorrect details. When we obtained the old map, it showed half of the frontage, but now, even after measuring, we have not received the complete frontage, and half of our land is occupied according to the measurements. After considering these issues, I would like to seek consultation with you, and I hope you can guide me accordingly.
