Father cannot sell the entire ancestral property till the consent of all the share holders in the property has been obtained.

In order to stop him from selling the ancestral property his children may move the District Court and seek a stay order against the sale.

As per limitation act, 3 years is the time limit for children to challenge the sale of ancestral property.
