Or is there any prohibtation regarding concent of girls fathere is mandatory for nikkah to be done

waiting for the answer , jazakALLAH

Thank you for your question.

According to Islamic laws, if a girl is virgin, she has to obtain permission from her father or Paternal Grand father for her marriage(this is obligatory). Otherwise, the marriage (Nikah) is not in order.
And if she is not virgin, she can marry without their consent.

Risalah Of Ayatullah Sistani :-
Chapter twenty-seven » Conditions of a marriage contract – Islamic Laws – The Official Website of the Office of His Eminence Al-Sayyid Ali Al-Husseini Al-Sistani
Ruling 2389. A marriage contract must fulfil the following conditions [in order for it to be valid]: 1. based on obligatory precaution, the formula must be said in Arabic. If the man or the woman are unable to say the formula in Arabic, they can say it in a language other than Arabic, and it is not necessary that they appoint an agent; however, they must use words that convey the meaning of …

It is also not permissible for the girl to get married without her fathers/ paternal grandfathers permission.
The Nikah in this case will be void
