Indian Law/Property Distribution


I am Rupesh ,Religion :Hindu and i am 24 year old.

I have a issue on my Father's Property.

My father having 2 sons and a Daughter and my Uncle having 2 sons only.I am staying with my family in town and my uncle staying with his family in village. My father buyed property in three different places in town all in name of my grandmother ,one of them he build a house ,in other he having business of dairy farm 3rd one is not in use.
Now all the property papers are with my uncle my grandfather and my grandmother both died long ago.

My question is :
1.Weather my uncle will get equal part from all property .
2.Can my sister claim on my grandmothers property or she will get part after property will be distributed among my father and uncle.
3.Electric bill for both property is in my father's name and he is paying it from 8 years so can he claim for property using it as a proof.

Please replay me soon Regarding this .

Thank You

Since all the three properties were purchased in the name of your grand-mother, only she will get full ownership of the properties and nobody else. However, if she dies  without a will, her wealth shall devolve in the following order:
1.upon the sons and daughters (including the children of any pre-deceased son or daughter) and the husband,
2.upon the heirs of the husband.
3.upon the heirs of the father, and
4.upon the heirs of the mother.

In view of the above, if your grandmother died by making a will, her properties will be distributed as per her last desire made in it.Otherwise,all her wealth will firstly devolve upon her sons and daughters.The children of any pre-deceased son or daughter are also included in the first category of heirs of a female Hindu.

For further details, please consult a property law/family law experts and follow his advice in the matter.
