  1. Yes friend please aware of new law of supreme court that daughter may claim share of property of father in same manner and same ratio as son.



  2. Not without a claim.

    If they (your sisters) have a pre-existing claim on the property then yes. But the “Debts follow the person of the debtor.” So I doubt your “dad” was in “private” debt to his children if he was able to gift you a property.



  3. NO.

    If it is self acquired by your father and he settled on your name, your sisters have no right to claim. For clarity contact a Lawyer.


  4. If the mother is alive , half of the self acquired property would go to the mother as the wife of the person and half ot it he can settle on anybody else .but the half of the property that goes to the wife ,can be equally shared among the legal heirs if she dies intestate after acquiring the property. It is a moot point if half of the property shall be divided among all the legal heirs of the wife of the property holder , if she has predeceased the husband .


  5. You have said that the property is a self acquired by your father from his own money. Then he alone has all the rights to enjoy and alienate.
    By using the power/ title/ right, he has transferred the property to you; so no one can question or challenge this; dont worry.

    But have a check on the method of execution of the deed, procedure of attesting witnesses, identifying witnesses, etc.

    If the witnesses are also sound, then no one can disturb you.
