My father has filed a maintenance case against me and my younger brother.
This is filed under the Maintenance and welfare of parents and senior citizens act, 2007
He has got an order for us to pay Rs. 1000 each to him per month. He has not approached the District Magistrate & Presiding officer with an appeal to increase the amount.
My father has a flat worth 50 Lacs in which he is staying.
Maintenance and welfare of parents and senior citizens act, 2007 – says that:
1. Any person being a relative of a senior citizen and having sufficient means shall maintain such senior citizen provided he is in possession of the property of such senior citizen or he would inherit the property of such senior citizen:
2. Provided that where more than one relatives are entitled to inherit the property of a senior citizen, the maintenance shall be payable by such relative in the proportion in which they would inherit his property.
How can I renounce my inheritance of any of my father’s properties like flat or any ancestral property; so that the maintenance case against me and my brother can be null and void ?
Or any other way to have the case revoked.
