If legal heirs of a joint property have acquired the letter of administration of the joint property, can a single co-owner sell his share (in india)?

Edited to add:

Can the said co-owner go for a partition deed?

Can the said co-owner go for a partition deed?

YES

But it will have to be agreed by all the joint-owners.

The actual process on how to go about it will depend on what the property is (e.g. agricultural land, dwelling, or is movable / immovable), the owners' religion(s) and what state the property is located in. This article gives some more detail - especially around Hindu law.

No

Ownership of property as “joint tenants” means the property is owned as a single indivisible unit.

Conversely, “tenants-in-common” own their shares separately and can sell them individually.
