Mr anonymous, widow of your brother and two minor daughters has equal share in the property of their deceased father.and your mother get share according to settlement deed.If she is dependent on your deceased brother for her livelihood she can claim maintenance in the property.

You have not told whether both the daughters of your brother are married or not before the death of your brother?

I presume that both are unmarried.

There is no right of mother in the given facts. widow and both the daughters are entitled for the grant of 1/3 each.
