You and your sister need to apply for grant of succession certificate from the concerned district court of your local jurisdiction. You need to provide documents like death certificate of all the deceased persons of your family members and adhaar card of you and your sister for applying the same. The whole process takes 7 to 8 months for completion.
For claiming any assets whether movable or immovable belonging to the deceased person, you need to provide the complete details of the same along with documentary proof for claiming the same. You and your sister have to pay the court fee to the learned court which shall be determined according to the value of the claimed asset. For further consultation regarding legal fees for the said matter kindly contact me, I will provide you all the information in detail.
