Hindu succession - sale of property-no consent of all majors


Can ancestral property be sold by a person's (after his death) sons and daughters without consent of grand daughters who are major? Particularly when the sale/alienation is detrimental to the interest of Major grand daughter.

Post the death, was any partition or family settlement deed executed?

Hello,

Ancestral property cannot be sold by grandfather's sons and daughters detrimental to the interest of granddaughter. Granddaughter can challenge the transaction in civil court.

with out the consent of the Grandchildren then  the sale is valid

Grandchildren are not class 1 legal heirs.  Once there was a partition among the father and his brothers by metes and bounds, then after the death of the father, children are entitled for a share.  Contact a local advocate with such facts and he will be in a better position to offer further guidance practically.

Dear sir,

Many thanks for the response. Actually, I am getting confused because of conflicting responses from others. Can you help me with any sections of law or judgements to substantiate.

Thanks
