My father-in-law and his 3 brothers have their ansester's property. To sale this property, he is asking me to give NOC. Is it really required and under which act? If I deny, then will they be able to sale their property? One more query: My father-in-law has three daughters, all married. One of the daughter is not ready to give NOC. In such case what he can do? Can he go ahead with selling of the property?

The daughters of your father-in-law have equal share in the ancestral property. Therefore without NOC of a daughter the father-in-law would not be in a position to sell the property. However, after partitioning the property, the father in law can sell other portions of the property which fall to his share, his sons and other two daughters with their signature.
