Dear Ld. legal community,
Does equal right of daughters to ancestral land entitles them to claim this right, even if paternal grandfather has left a legal document which specifically mentions that the land should go to the male children of his son. During his time the law which entitles women of equal share of the ancestral property( Here a house) was not existing. Does this progressive law applies in retrospect? My father as well as grandfather have both expired. The document also mentions that as long as my mother is alive, the house cannot be divided without her consent.
