My grand father acquired a proerty in 1950. He has 3 sons and 5 daughters. Both grand father and grand mother have died in 1980s. Their is no legal will. Does daughters have any legal right to my grand parents property as per hindu law.
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.
