Hindu Law -Pious Obligation of sons -basis of - immoral debts - son's liability to pay.

The doctorine of pious obligation under which sons are held liable to discharge their father's debts is based solely on religious considerations.  The doctrine inevitably postulates that  the father's debts must be vyavaharik.  If the debts are not vyavaharik or are avyavaharik the doctorine of pious obligation cannot be invoked.

Son is liable to pay the debts of the father, if such debt was for moral, if not pious obligation is not applicable.
