Dear Madam, Father has purchased the property in the name of his minor son, After the son's attening Mejority the rights of records directly shows his name in holders coloum I think so, so the defence taken in the Original suit lies in his favor and hope the appellate court also follows the same, even I agree with what Sachin Bhatia suggested.
I am dfferent opinion if father is purchased property in the name of minor sons and wife before 20 years ago, the said property is not self acquired property of sons,because sons are minor they have no earnig capacity 20 years ago,hence said property is ancestral property and daughter entitled to get there shares in partition suit.Daughter will succeed definitaly in appeal.
