The 31 acre land transferred to you and your family by your father would remain with you and you have exclusive rights upon it. Your sisters can in no way claim share out of that piece of land. You may send a reply to the notice reinstating your acquired rights over the land.
Regarding the remaining 9 acres, your share depends upon your father’s actions. If he decides to transfer it to your sisters you cannot do anything about it. Your father may leave a will which would then decide the distribution of the remaining land after his death. However, if the land remains intestate, i.e., if there is no will after your father’s death then you, along with all of your siblings and your mother (if alive), would receive equal shares out of the remaining 9 acre land.
