Nominee is only trustee for legal heirs

On demise of father flat would devolve on wife , children equally

Society would transfer flat in name of nominees based on noc from other legal heirs

Maintenance has to be paid by nominees in whose name flat is transferred

Advisable to obtain letters of administration from HC or district court having jurisdiction

Yes. The nominee is the only trustee to legal heirs of the deceased. So the property of the father shall devolve among both sisters and mother if alive. They can do partition into two/three equal shares and that may be informed to the society. The owners who divide the property into equal shares shall pay the maintenance and tax etc.

Very well analysed and advised by expert Mr. Ajay Sethi, I fully agree and appreciate.

You have stated A has only two heirs (daughters) what about share of their mother since she is also equal share holder to succeed her deceased husband's property ?
Dr J C Vashista (Expert) 05 October 2020
Society can transfer share certificate of deceased (A) in the name of nominee(s) as per their share prescribed by member i.e. 70 : 30 percent in instant case. First name appearing in nomination form submitted by member (A) shall be granted and appear in the share certificate as member and next to be joint member.

Whereas, the society can not decide /transfer title of flat on the basis of nomination, which can be decided by competent civil court.

However, the nominee (daughters) of deceased member (A) shall have to pay maintenance and other bills raised by the society till title of the flat is not decided between all legal representative of member (A).
Dr J C Vashista (Expert) 05 October 2020
Property tax can be paid by either of the LRs of deceased/ titleholder i.e., A, which do not confer any ownership rights of either of the surviving member.

Sale proceeds, if any may be shared as mutually decided otherwise (legally) equally between all legal representatives of deceased/ owner (A).
