Your mother can transfer the land to your name as a gift deed or settlement. Once you inherit the property, it becomes your own property, however for further local issues, you can contact a local lawyer for more opinion to this issue.

Status of Scheduled Tribe is not based religion. You still belong to ST in spite of the apparent change in religion.
