Meaning of donating the property for charity

Dear Sir / Madam, 

One Mrs Jonnalagadda Mangathayamma widow and no issues made a registered will in favour of her sister's daughter Kamalavalli Thayaramma ( a widow and no issues)  in the year 1928 stating that Kamallavalli Thayaramma can enjoy the property for her life time and she can donate (Dharma Kainkaryam in telugu)  the property as per her wish and will. 

Kamalavalli Thayaramma adopted a girl child by name Krishnavenamma,  brought up and did her marriage to Mr. Chenchaiah

Krishnavenamma had two male issues Mr. Chenchuramaiah and Mr. Sudhakar

 Krishnavenamma died in 1952

Kamalavalli thayaramma made registered settlement in the year 1952 giving life interest to his son in law Chenchaiah (Husband of Krishnavenamma) and after his tenure the property should go the his two sons Mr. Chenchuramaiah and Mr. Sudhakar

Whether the document made in the year 1952 is valid or not ? As per 1928 document Kamalavalli Thayaramma should use the property as per her wish and will to charity. 

Giving the property to the children of adopted daughter comes under charity or not ?

Kindly suggest

She has been given liberty to doante or use it , there is no illegality in bequeting the property to her adopted child .

T. Kalaiselvan, Advocate (Advocate)     12 August 2023

She has been authorised to donate the property to anyone, that way she has transferred the rights over the property to a third person i.e.,husband of her adopted daughter with life interest and then to his children, there is no legal infirmity in it.

Being a long chain with different out of family successors it is better to show relevant documents to a local prudent lawyer for proper appreciation of facts/documents and professional advise.
