Distribution of land property by father between sons only

One father distributed his land property between his  two sons only leaving his two married daughters . Even he has not taken any consent / willingness  from his two daughters . After expiry of father  it  has  come  to  light . Now can the sisters claim thier portion  of property   from brothers. 

Sudhir Saha


Sudhir Saha, if the land in question is not the ancestral property, but purchased exclusively by the earnings of father, then the father had the liberty to do so, which he has already executed by giving equal shares to both the sons, when he was alive. On the other hand if it were ancestral, then her both daughters can demand their shares from both the brothers now, for filling the civil suit.


Dear querist, if it is the father's self acquired property, the property may be disposed by him as he wishes.  If the property is ancestral then all legal heirs including daughters have equal rights.  


I agree with the Experts Om Prakash and  Kavk Satyanarayana
