Yes, but relation code repeats itself. there can be two values coded 3.
So if i create a nuclear hhid saying that nfam=hhid+ relation==3, i will get same
value for both married sons in the joint family.

Is there some way to create an identifier say,
first set of relations coded 3,4 and 6 for household 1 should be coded nfam1
second set of relations coded 3,4 and 6 for household 1 should be coded nfam2

May be then i can create education indicators for each parent in each nuclear family.

According to your example, there is a variable "Relation to the head"
which includes the information you need.
