Hello lawyers ! . I belong to Jatt sikh family & We are two childern of our parents me and my sister. Due to disputes between our maternal and paternal families we live separate from childhood. My mother is only daughter to her parents, So Me and my mother lives in my maternal grandparents house and my sister lives with my paternal parents. My father also favours my sister and in 2008 when I was a minor he sold out his entire property and gave in the hands of my paternal grandfather for study and all of her maintaince. Me And my mother got nothing from the our Ancestral property on which both of us legally had right. My maternal property was on the name of my Maternal Grandmother (Nani) and my mother. My Nani made a will and my mother made transfer deed in my favour. Now my paternal family is forcing me and asking for money for my sisters marriage. Why should I pay when entire property was already given in their hands and I got nothing ! How can they demand any maintainance from me legally when entire ancestral property of my father even including my and my mother's share was given to them. It was their choice how to use that property once it was given to my paternal grandfather. Now they are excusing that all money of my father's property is finished on my sister's study only and they have no savings or any more money for her marriage. Then is this my fault ? my mother did not denied at that time and allowed all of my fathers property to gave in grandfathers hands for my sisters study and maintaince and it was 8 lakhs (liberated from the sale of my fathers agricultural land) in year 2008. They could increase that money or could aslo buy some property on the name of my sister for her future. But that was their decision bcz my father had given all auothorities in their hands. They are fooling us bcz my father was expired 6 months ago. Plz guide me sir what should i do ? My basic questions are :
1.Can they legally demad maintaince or money for my sister's marriage even after getting entire ancestral property of my father ?
2. What legal steps can I take if they do not stop forcing me
Plz reply Thanks !!

Sir but they did not get permission of my mother on any document I think ! Bcz she is not so educated and I was minor at that time. That was an oral doscussion. She was just informed about sale and does not informed at the time of execution of sale deed in Registrar office.
