Dear in ancestral property every member of Hindu joint family has the same right irrespective of male or female, your sister can challenge the transfer of property in the court if she will not get her share,

Till your father is alive she can't claim share. To a property as ancestral it should have come from last three generations otherwise it's not ancestral. After the death of your father she can become a coparcenor and will be entitled to a share
