Ancester property Shares

IM having doubt on rights for women on their ancester properties. and the law abt the share of women born before 1960.

We neeed to divide / share property amoung the following persons.

1. elder brother - he is no more and his son aged 28 claims his fathers rights

2. Sister

3. Younger brother.

all were born before 1955.

 1. does the sister has equal rights on the properties as those brothers have ??.

2.does  the son of the elder brother have equal rights as his father has??

So far as the period of birth is concerned, it hardly matters in the present set of facts.


You have not given the details of the properties and its nature whichare to be divided among your family members. If those are ancestral then question arises when those are going to be partitioned and similarly the way of distribution shall be different if the properties are self acquired of yoru father and it shall also be seen whether your mother is alive or dead and when did she expire.


It shall be better if you come with all the relevant facts and raise fresh quarry or make PM to me.

Hi Raj kumar,
