I was working in Dubai. At that time I wanted to purchase a property in India. I sent money to my father who bought a property in his name. After my return to India I married a Christian girl. Now my father is refusing to give the property to me. He says that he will bequeath the property to his daughters by a registered Will. How can I get back the property?

Since the property is in your father's name, it is his property. In the eye of law it is his self acquired property. He is free to give the property to any one of his choice. In this case to your sisters.
You may request your father to reconsider his decision on moral grounds of justice and equity. Or you may approach an elderly person in the family and arrive at an amicable settlement.
