Please Help me to Understand
My Father died intestate ( year 1970 ) : without WILL ., On Succession All the Property Transferred to My Mother's Name,
My mother have 5 daughter's all married before 1989, and Myself got married year 1995, I have my only Daughter Age 14 years,

Now My Daughter (behalf my Wife) Filed the Partition Suit in the District Court for 50% share..?
Is it Valid ? Maintainable in the Court ?

My wife left home ( 4 years before ) and she take my daughter also with her and staying her parents house, and myself staying with my mother,
Properties on my Mother Name is it Considered as Self owned Properties & / Improvement done & safe guarded, Last 40 years. & she have absolute rights on the properties.?
I got Gift Settlement Deed from My mother & then I got Release Deed with consideration ( Paying some amount )from my all 5 Sisters,
So Legal advice needed.
My Daughter can demand 50% or only 1/14 part from me..?
What ever I got from My mother and My sisters considered my Self Owned Properties ?, If yes, What is the share my daughter can demand.

Dear Jathin Sharma,
Yes, My Father Property Transferred on the Name of my Mother before My marriage,
But day by day I am getting confused.. After 2005 Amendment act gives more power's to Girls.. My In-laws give Advertisement in the Local News paper saying that My daughter have 50% on my properties, No one can BUY or SALE.. like that, Now I am totally struck with this kind of harassment. If this case can go next 4 years..then I can't SALE.. ?
Please give your views..

Dear Mr. Anandan,

You need not get confused.

The property which you got in GIFT from your mother is your personal property. During your life time (i.e. when you are alive) nobody can claim any share from the said property which is in your name. You can do whatever that you like with the said property.

The 2005 year Amemdment is in respect of "Ancestral Property" and not with regard to personal property.

In your case, the property is not an Ancestral property and therefore the 2005 Amendment Act will have no effect. As already stated, nobody, including your daughter cannot make any claim in the property.

Thanks for your guidance : But Can I say that My 5 sisters all married before 1989 don't have any rights ?, If yes I spend money for getting the Release Deed with consideration No use..,?, On safer side I got the Release DEED from Sisters with Consideration is equal to Sale DEED, & then It is Considered as My personal Properties..? Thanks..
