1. Stepsons as in grandsons have equal share in such property along with other heirs.
Virtual Legal Assistant (.) 10 June 2020
In my opinion, grandchildren of your grandfather being the legal heir of your grandmother will have the right to claim an equal share in the said property.
As per the Hindu Marriage Act, illegitimate children are entitled to all the rights in the property of their parents, both self-acquired and ancestral.
Hope this helps.
When there is a will, the property of the deceased should be transferred accordingly. In the given case, as there is a registered will, the value of the will increases in the eyes of law. The property goes to the real son according to the will of your grandmother. And now that property is transferred in the name of your father, step sons won't have any right on that property.
