Dear One , The successors in fathers property are all his children. commonly married daughters do not claim their rights. If they claim, they will get the share in the property. Law has many aspects but amicable solution is the division of property by common consensus

The grand father had survived with 6 children. I think, all legal heirs will get equal share. As of your statement your father is on more, so you and your brother sisters if any are entitled to claim equal share from your father's share alone. In case if you are only one legal heir for your father mean you will get total share of your father's.
Your view that "Only the 2 males including my Grandmother are having right" is not correct.
As rightly pointed out by Mr. Makkad, the property in the hands of your grand father was his personal property.
Since he died intestate, the property will go by way of inheritance equally amongst all his legal heirs i.e. his widow and eight children.
The share falling to your father, will go equally to all the legal heirs of your father equally.
It is not clear whether your grand mother is alive. If she is not alive, and if she had not left any WILL, then her 1/7th share will go by way of inheritance amongst all her children equally. Here again, the deceased son's share will go to his legal heirs equally.

It is sections 8 &9 of The Hindu Succession Act read with its schedule with respect to class I heirs that governs your case which are reproduced below as you desire to know them,with one caution that Mr.Makkad expressed view is dependent on the basis of facts supplied by you that due to your silence he has analysed to presume that your your grand mother predeceased your grand father.If not so ,then situation will go governed as explained by Expert : R.Ramachandran just under these provisions.
