Family settlement in hindu law.

Ravi , a Hindu made a family settlement agreement and specified shares of his wife, son A , daughters in his property. Ravi passed away in 2022 without any will . Then son  A  died in 2023 intestate . Can wife of Ravi claim from property of her pre deceased son A under Hindu Succession Act as she is a legal heirs? 

Or will property belong only to children and widow of A on the basis of family settlement to which mother of A is also a signatory ? 

Any judgement on the point.

Ravi's wife is one among the class I legal heirs to her deceased son  A.

Hence she is entitled to an equal share out of the property left behind by her son at par with other class I legal heirs of her deceased son.

His mother is also one of the legal representatives of deceased and has equal share with other LRs.
