You can file a partition suit on your rights in ancestral property only.

 

As regards the self acquired property of your father, you also have equal share as like your brother and other sisters.   After your father's lifetime you can claim equal share in your father's self acquired property.  

 

But if your father settles his self acquired property in anyone's favour you cannot claim any share.

If no partition is effected, you can file a suit for partition and seperate possession of  your share in the ancestral property. Your father, during his life time,has the right to disposeoff  his self acquired  property at his wish . Unless he voluntarily allots a share, you are not entitled to seek for share in his self acquired lands. If he dies intestate(i.e.,without will) then you are eligible for share in the said land

Yes you have a right in your father's property.

During his lifetime, he can dispose it off the way he wants, write a will, gift it away.
