What are the tenancy rights of a tenant staying for over 40 years in Dehradun Uttarakhand?

Situation : Hi! My grandparents have been staying in a rented property for last over forty (40) years. They moved to this place in 1974. There was no written agreement, only verbal. Since they do not have a house of their own, they were assured for 3 decades by the owner back then that this property will be sold to them sometime in future. Later, the owner passed away and his wife and grand son refused to the promise. So, they just kept paying rent to them. All maintenance & repairs were done by my grandparents only. Also, electricity & water connection are in the name of my grandmother for last 15 years. In 2008 the landlord refused to accept the rent too. So, my grandparents deposited it in the court after three refused money orders. I just want to understand the tenancy & ownership rights for a tenant of before 1975. Also, they haven't been paying rent for a while now. Although, the last paid rent was deposited in the court itself. What kind of negotiation can be done if we plan on vacating the property willingly?
