Marriage query on maternal side (mother's side)

Is is possible to marry, Mother's -->Father's--> Step Brother's--> Daughter's --->Daughter. (Under hindu mairrage act)?

My Grandfather from mother's side, and her grandfather from mother's side are step brothers. (So same greatgrandfather but different greatgrandmother).

Does this falls into sapinda prohibition.

Pls explain and thank you for the time.


Somethign like this:

Greatgrandfather(4th gen) -->

My Grandfather(3rd gen) + Her Grandfather(3rd gen) (step brothers)-->

My mother(2nd gen)--->Me.(1st Gen) / Her mother (2nd gen)-->She(1st gen)

 A sapinda is someone who is: within or has a common ancestor relative within three generations above you on your mother's side of the family. within or has a common ancestor relative within five generations above you on your father's side of the family.
