No. Your father' sisters also have equal rights over the ancestral property.

Was the property ancestral or self acquired?

No is the sole reply to your query. HSA. 2005 is otherwise. If the names of your Bua (aunts) would not have mentioned after demise of your grand-father (though not permissible even if the property was his self-acquired or ancestral after 1956), they would have got the right to get the same entered. Your father has only 1/4th share and rest of 3/4 belongs to your Bua. Better please them and get their blessings.

Your father's sisters are entitled to an equal share in their father's property.
Your grandfather is reported to have died intestate leaving behind his properties.
His properties, assuming he belonged to Hindu religion, shall devolve equally on all his legal heirs which includes his daughters.
Therefore your paternal aunts are entitled to an equal share in the properties left behind by their father who is reported to have died intestate.
It will be an illegal act if your father is attempting to remove their names from the 7/12 records.
The law referred by you is applicable only for the ancestral properties. .
