Mr. Makkad, what is your opinion? Kindly respond.
Hindu Succession (Amendment)Act 2005 removed gender discrimination. Daughter is entitled to ancestral property as a co-parcenar. However, this depends on the date of the death of the father. Property partitioned or alienated prior to 20.12.2004 cannot be invalidated. The issue of succession arises on the date of the death of the father. If the fatehr died prior to the commencement of the Act, the Act has no meaning at all. How can a daughter(who's father died in 1961) file a suit for partition claiming a share in the property which was already alienated prior to 20.12.2004 that too after obtaining decree from the Court.
