No, she can’t.
The father died in 1952, so as per Law she can’t because the Hindu Succession Act only came in 1956, so eventually before that there was only maintenance right and no share in property right.

Well A got her share as gift, doesn’t mean that she was thrown out of the remaining share in the property unless there was a family arrangement. Further if she has to claim she would also have to cover the limitation part. Rest can be explained after doing through the documents m. Plz contact me for further assistance.
