Dear Querist

HSA applies on all Hindus, Buddhists, Jainas or Sikhs by religion for the devolution of their properties (self acquired and ancestral) after their death intestate.

Hi Atharv, I'm Niharika Lohan, an advocate practising in New Delhi. I've read your query and here is my take on it.

Hindu Succession Act, 1956 applies on all properties of a Hindu, which means both self acquired property and ancestral/inherited property.

A Hindu for the purpose of this act means and includes, all Hindus, Buddhists, Jainas or Sikhs by religion and by conversion as well.

I hope this information yields fruitful to you and in case you require further guidance, you can contact me via email at niharikalohan@yahoo.com
