Hi, You have to file a suit for partition in the Jurisdictional Court to claim  your share in the property. As the property is the ancestral property you, your brother and your father has share in the properties left behind by your grandfather.

Dear Querist
your father may file a civil suit for partition against them before civil court and his share will be given to him by the court if there is no will of your grand father and he died intestate.

Nobody can restrain your father to claim his share from his father's property.

you may claim your share from your father from that property too after get partition.

In the given situation your father has a right to seek partition and separate possession of his share.
During your father's life time nobody can claim any share in it, i.e., his children or even his wife.
You do not have rights directly out of your grandfather's property.  You can claim a share out of your father's share in it and it will not be possible during your fathers lifetime.
Ask your father to file a partition suit and seek his share out of his father's intestate property.

Your father has to file a partition suit immediately seeking division of property and separate possession of his legitimate share in it.
He can file an application also seeking injunction to not to alienate or encumber the property till the disposal of the suit.

1. Your father is at liberty to file a suit for partition to cull out his share in the property notwithstanding the refusal of your cousins to separate his share. 

2. A certified copy of the sale deed of the property can be obtained from the office of sub-registrar.
