Danpatra for immoveable property is to be registered. If danpatra for immoveable property is not registered then it is not effective.
However, since your father is alive, his danpatra is not effective for lack of registration. Your father is still the owner.

Since the property belongs to your father, he can gift the same to whoever he wants. However, if you think the gift is not with free consent of your father and if you can somehow file a suit for cancellation of such gift and allege in the Court that such gift has been obtained by your elder brother practising fraud, undue,influence, misrepresentation etc., you can get an interim order of stay and your elder brother then cannot sell the property, thereafter if your allegation is established before the Court such gift shall be cancelled. All the best. Regards

The property belongs to your father, so, he have every right to deal with it. He can gift and or sale his entire or part property of his own choice, where you cannot argue.
The only thing you can do, is to retain the possession.
