We are 4 Brothers & 3 Sisters (Hindu - Tamilnadu). We have an agri land property in the name of our Grand Father purchased his own in 1920. After our Grand Father, our father (only son) maintained the land (but didn't transfered to his name). After our father (passed in 1980) we all 4 brothers maintaining it and transfered only PATTA in our 4 (bros) names. The deed still in the name of Grand Father name. All sisters married before 1970s. We (4 bros) maintaining the land more than 30 years. Now we want to sell the land, but all sisters demanding equal share.
Whether this property can be considered as Ancestral property and as per Tamil Nadu act Women married before 25-03-1989 is eligible for equal share?... if all sisters go for legal action, is there any provision to defend them.
