What are the legal implications of recent Hindu Succession Act judgement, in which it was held that daughters who were born before the enactment of Hindu Succession Act 1956 are entitled to equal shares. In this case the father died in the year 2001,before enactment of Hindu Succession (Amendment) Act, 2005. So my query is whether the present judgement would interpret that daughter would be eligible for share even if her father is not alive as on 9 September 2005. Thanks in advance.
