Dear Madam,
Every Child under Hindu law irrespective of being a girl or a boy, legitimate, illegitimate and from any wife has equal rights to inherit property through his father.
If your father had separate property and died without a will then the property shall be equally divided among all his children, his current legal wife and his mother if alive. And if property is ancestral only you and your step siblings will have an equal share excluding wife and mother.
