Post 2005 amendment a daughter (married or not) has the same right/share as a son in the coparcenary property i.e. in the property which your father has got from your grandfather or if your father brought property out of funds given by your grandfather.

Your brother cannot push you out of the house and you can claim you right by filing a partition suit in the Court.

madam, presently daughters have an equal share in the ancestral property with their brothers. Do not sign any document relinquishing or surrendering your rights in the property. No sale can take place without your consent. You may file a partition suit for your share in the property

Every daughter whether married or no has an equal share in the ancestral property of her father's property. Your brother cannot push you out of the house and you can claim you right by filing a partition suit in the Court.
