1) were the 2 daughters party to the suit proceedings?

2) were they allotted their share ?

3) if third brother in law is not claiming share he can execute gift deed in favour of other family members 

4) in alternative he can execute relinquishment deed to relinquish his share in property 

5) his share would not be given to other family members unless he executes gift deed or relinquishment deed

1) benami transaction act would not be applicable in your case

2) it would apply wherein property is purchased in name of other person out of funds given by real  owner

3) in such a case property can be confiscated and accused sentenced to impriosnment . 

4) in your case if brother in law is not taking his share seek necessary clarification from the court .

5) place the case on board for speaking to minutes of order . mention that brother in law has declined to take his share and to pass appropriate orders for his share of property

1. None can claim his share during his lifetime except if he executes a relinquishment/release deed in respect of his share. 

2. During his lifetime he can claim the property at anytime. Nobody can claim any right, title or interest in the property during his lifetime.

The Benami Transaction Prohibition Act has no application to your case as the property is not benami by an stretch of the imagination.
