Your Grandfather's will bequeathing his ancestral property is not valid. Only self acquired properties can be bequeathed through will.

The ancestral property could not have been given to the exclusion of grand mother's share. However, a lot hinges on the specific clauses mentioned in the will.

It is your own statement that this property is ancestral. If that be so, then your grand father could not have willed his share to his grand children. Although without a perusal of the title deeds of the property and the will made by your grand father during his lifetime nothing can be said with a tinge of certainty, nonetheless your grand mother's claim seems to be legally sustainable at first blush.
