1) it was your grand father self acquired property . he died in 1979 . on his death your father had 1/7th interest in property . ( 4 sons , 2 daughters , wife all are legal heirs)
you have not mentioned whether your grand father left a will or not . i presume he died intestate . . on your grand mother death her 1/7th share will devolve among her 6 children .
2)the family settlement entered into does not mention about share of 2 daughters . although your father brothers have signed relinquishment deeds and received share of money his sisters have not signed any such deed
3)your cousin brother legal notice is devoid of any merits . it was self acquired property of grand father . his son ie your father brother had signed relinquishment deed . cousin cannot claim any share
Sir , please note my grandfather has already given shares to my bua in 1958 residential plots of 300 sqyards . and we are in possession of this property since 1977 , we have paid all the house taxes and constructed with using our funds. Still my bua can claim and they have never objected since 37 years.

If RD is registered then he can not claim any property but Bua is entitle to get her share.it will be better to contact a lawyer personally with the documents for best advise

This property, if belonged to your grand father, would vest equally in his wife and all children after his death. The only way your father could have become absolute owner of this property is if other share holders relinquished their share in his favour. In terms of relinquishment deed made amongst your father and his brothers the property of your grand father was to vest in your father alone.
If the deed of relinquishment has been registered according to law then it has put an irreversible seal on the rights of your father's siblings inasmuch as none of them or their legal heirs can now stake a claim to any share in this property. Hence, the legal notice sent to you does not have backing of law. His claim will not survive in a court of law.
Your father's sisters can claim their share in the property as they are not a signatory to the relinquishment deed.
Whether your cousin brother was minor at that time. If he was minor, his father's relinquishment can't be challenged. Also, if u are in undisturbed possession for 37 years of property, you can not be dispossesed.
