Yes daughters have the right in the property.

I read it somewhere that as per SC verdicts and succession law amendment in 2005, if parents have died before 2005 then daughters do not have legal right in parental property in absence of will.

Supreme Court bench said the amended Hindu Succession Act of 2005 stipulated that a daughter would be a 'coparcener' since birth, and have the 'same rights and liabilities' as a son.

With the coming of the Hindu succession act in 2005, daughters got equal rights in their ancestral assets. Last week, the Supreme Court clarified that the law applies to all daughters, irrespective of whether they were born before or after the coming of the law.

Thank you Sohail for responses. It really helps. You mean there is no impact on property right of daughters even if father died before 2005. Also it applies to property bought by father himself (not given by ancestors). Please advice.
