your father can execute gift deed in your favour 

2) gift deed should be duly stamped  and registered 

3) in the alternative your father can  execute will wherein he bequeaths his share in flat and one house to you and one house to sister

Your father may execute a gift deed in respect of his share in the jointly owned house and the other house. During his lifetime he is free to dispose his property in the manner he desires. The gift deed requires mandatory registration.

Your father can transfer the property either by making a registered family arrangement to both  of you as per desire.  

By this she cannot raise any dispute at any stage.

Alternately he can transfer the property by executing a registered gift deed to both of you again as per his desire.

1.You are already joint owner of the flat which your father had purchased by selling one of his properties and for which you are paying the EMIs now,

2. Among his other two flats, he wants to gift one each to you and your sister,

3. He shall have to gift his 50% of the jointly held flat also otherwise your sister can claim 50% of 50% of the said flat if your father dies without writing a will,

4. Now, to make things simple for all of you, your father should execute and register the Gift Deeds gifting one house and his 50% share of the flat to you duly mentioning separately that he had willingly paid the initial amount towards part payment  for purchasing the flat which will go to you and you have paid the balance amount by paying the EMIs,

5. She can also execute and register a gift deed for transferring the remaining house in favour of your sister if she agrees for the said gift. She can not oppose to your fathers said decision to deal with his properties as per his wish.
