"In cases where the subject matter of property is an immovable property, situated in the state of West Bengal, Chennai and Bombay, the Muslims shall be bound by the Indian Succession Act, 1925. This exception is only for the purposes of testamentary succession."
Can anyone please explain why this is applicable only in West Bengal, Chennai and Bombay? Is there any historical reason behind it? How do I check whether this is applicable in any other states or High courts?
Could it be that, this is because these were the only existing High courts back during the making of the law? Any information is appreciated.
