Women now have an equal share in the ancestral property of the family and therefore the share of a daughter and a son is on par. This of course assumes that you are a family of Hindus.

However, if the property was self acquired and not inherited from your ancestors then your mother is entitled to dispose of it in any manner. If it is ancestral property then you should file a suit for partition to claim your share.

As far as right concern u have the right.
As far as sale or release deed by mother's papers have to be looked into. Can be challenge.
Probate can be granted to only beneficiary. Can be challenge. For all these family history as well all relevant papers have to be gone through.
