The property isn't an inheritance property and as such your sisters shouldn't have any say on it.

Even if it was an inheritance property, while your father is alive I believe any decision of what to do with the property is his and his alone. In any case once it becomes a gift it is no longer an "inheritance property" and your sisters have no say and it can be sold/transferred as he wants.

The property belongs to the father and the children have rights or interests therein during his lifetime.

If your grandmother gave it to your father in a gift deed, it is not inherited property, and as such nobody has any claim to it other than your father.

If it was purchased by your grandfather/grandmother and then inherited by your father, then it is inheritance property and his children (your sisters/brother/you) have a claim to it due to the inherited status.

If registered by gift or sale deed, however, then it is not inheritance.
