You can either sue for the money paid for the house (and gains if any) or for declaration that you are the owner of the other half of the property.

Please note that you need to show that money was paid by you and she held the property as a trustee or in fiduciary capacity.

In relation to your query. I found that, if she is not making a will in favour of you three or single one. In that case, you can file a suit for Benami transaction before the Court, wherein jurisdiction lies. because as per mutation (if already done before the registrar) she is the legal owner of the property. I suggest you please tell you mother to make a will in your favor or you can file a suit to recover the said property. Hence, you will not get your property.
