The Supreme Court has held that under the Hindu Marriage Act (HMA), illegitimate children are entitled to all rights in the property of their parents, both self-acquired and ancestral.

In your case it is your father's grandfather's property therefore it is ancestral property.

But there are other means to prevent the illegitimate children from claiming the property, you should approach a lawyer and discuss with him/her.

Every child, whether legitimate or illegitimate will have a right in the property of their father. The woman with whom your father has an illegal relationship has no right whatsoever in your father's property.
