Grandchildren have rights over the property acquired by the grandfather being an ancestral property and father under law is not authorised to sell it without their consent if they have attained majority.

land allotted by DDA to grandfather in lieu of forfeited land also falls in the category of ancestral property for grandchildren and law related to it is applicable.

Answer: The land allotted to the Father by DDA will be self-acquired land and hence, the rights in the same will accrue as per the wishes of the father. Further, in case the land has been illegally forfeited by the grandfather after the death of the father, the grandchildren can file a case on behalf of the deceased father.
