Legal Question in Family Law in India

please let me know the right on a man's self-acquired property by his wife and daughters respectively when the man is still alive. Please also let me know if the man's siblings also have share in his self-acquired property. I read in some of the articles that if he gifts his property while he's alive none of us can challenge that. Please advice as his siblings are trying to encroach the property and have brainwashed him ... Please advise.

1. No sibling has any right over self acquired property of person in India.

2. The wife and minor children may claim a "charge" over the property for the purpose of their maintenance.

3. In a case of domestic violence, the wife may claim a share in the self acquired property of her husband.
