The Hindu Succession Act, 1956, was amended in 2005 to give daughters an equal share in parental property.So if your Client is under the Mitakshara Law,even then your Client's sister will inherit her share in her parental property if your client's father dies after 2005 without leaving any Will and therefore your Client's sister has the right to file Partition Suit.
