1. IF property was duly Gifted to Father, THEN Father alone is entitled to the property and is legally entitled to Sell /Gift /Donate /whatever .... to "ANYBODY" he wishes too, without any legal reference to any of his legal heirs.

2. However, coordinate with a local Property Lawyer with available documents, and see whether the property can be classified as Ancestral Property, wherein you can then claim your share ratio.

Keep Smiling .... Hemant Agarwal

*Daughters will now be treated on par with sons of coparceners and will be granted equal coparcenary rights in their father's property on their birth. Further, daughters' marital status will not affect the rights conferred on them by the 2005 amendment – hence, they continue to be part of their father's HUF post-marriage. ???

You have right on land. If your grandpa gave your father money to start business, you have right to business share as well I guess.

agreed with views of earlier experts, therefore no further comments so far.
