A person, karta of two hufs

Respected Sirs,

Whether a person can be Karta of two Hufs in following given situation?

There is one(Ist)  Huf coparceners being Karta  named K, K’s son N,  K’s daughter  in law M, and K’s daughter P. This Ist Huf was made in 1990. N’s  son J,  N’s another  son L became coparceners when they born in family in 1992,1993 respectively. K’s daughter P married in 1994.

Simultaneously, There is another (2nd  or smaller) HUf at the same time Karta being N (son of K), coparceners N's wife M, N's son J and N's another son L. This (2nd) HUf  was made in 1994.

Karta of  Ist Huf  i.e K died in 2002. There is no other member/coparcener except mentioned above.

Can N being his only son can become Karta of  Ist Huf, while keeping him Karta of 2nd Huf ?

Thanks with Regards,

Yes. Technically in your case, since there's no other party qualified to take over the Karta's responsibilities, the oldest son will become the Karta of the first HUF as well. There are no legal provisions against a person being Karta of more than 1 HUF.
