Property rights of grand son & grand daughter

The property belongs to grand father - both self-aquired and ancestral, the grand fathers' ancestral property was partitioned among his siblings and clearly settled during 1960's.  Religion - Hindu.  

Now, Grand father died in 2013 survived by wife and childrens.  The grand father did not write any "will" and died without doing any partition among his children.

Grand father died after 9th september 2005, but one of his daughter died in 2000 long after marriage and children, the daughter died before the amendment  - ie 9th september 2005.

Now, the question is "Do ( the grand daughter and grand son ) - the children of dead daughter has any rights over the grand fathers property? - Because the daughter died before the cut-off date and the father died after the cut-off date.

I hope my query is clear.

Many thanks to the forum members - who are educating the general public like me.

Thank you very much.

In case of self acquired property the 1st right is of CLassI legal heirs i.e.; Mother (if alive as on date of death), Wife (if alive as on date of death), sons,daughters,.........................heirs of predeceased son,daughter...........

Thanks for agreeing Mr. Bhartesh Goyal.

Hi, since the death of the grandfather took place after the amendment, the surviving daughters or grand-daughters (daughters of the deceased children) would be entitled to share in the ancestral property.

Hello Mr. Kumar Doab, Mr. Bharatesh Goyal and  Ms Raveena  thank you very much, thanks a lot for your replies.

Hello - Ms Susan Nath, Thank you very much for your reply, grand father died in 2013 only.

You are welcome.

If the property was partitioned/alienated by a valid/registered deed then it looses its ancestral charachter.

The partition seems to be before December 20, 2004, if there is no error in posting dates.

Hello Kumar Doab, There is no error in posting dates. The grand father who died is near about 100 years old. The grand father and his brothers clearly settled themselves during 1960s. Once again thanks a lot sir.

Kumar Doab (FIN)     03 August 2017

If settlement was between Grandfather and his brothers by a valid/registered deed for ancestral property and property was alienated then nature of property should change to self acquired as already posted.

Thus grandfater's entire property ( self acquired + share from ancestral property) should be self acquired.

Daughters have equals share  in self acquired property of father.
