1) under section 44 of transfer of property act co owner can sell his share without consent of other co owners 

2) in the alternative your mother can  file suit for partition for division of property by metes and bounds 

3) suit would  take some years to be disposed of

Undivided share in the joint property can be sold even if the other co sharers are not ready for it.
There is no legal restraint to sell undivided share.
However the prospective buyer is to be ready for this.

Although nobody can predict the exact time frame but the least it may take is a year. Civil suits take time to be decided in the courts, albeit the delay can be remedied by seeking appropriate orders from the High Court.

partition on the basis of share mentioned in revenue record will take less than 6 months to decide because 3 months notice is compulsory.
