Is the married daughter of a deceased person from whom , his daughter dosen't inherit anything is liable to pay his debt? Can the police/court or the money givers take lawful action/case against the deceased person's daughter?

What is the relevance / correlation of your question qua payment of debts outstanding against deceased father as posted by you ?

If she is neither a gurantor nor any witness to any document of loan then she is not legally bound to pay anything. If the deseased had any property then that would be adjusted from that, 

However the daughter is not legally bound nor can be forced by any court or law to pay fathers debt, but morally she has duty to pay it.

All the legal heirs ( son & daughter ) are liable to pay their deceased father's debt.

P. Venu (Advocate)     04 October 2022

As a legal heir, your liability is limited to the extent of the estate, if any, you have inherited from the late father.  Of course, you would be liable if you had been a guarantor to the said debt.

As a legal heir of your deceased father, you are liable to pay the debt.

Dr J C Vashista (Advocate)     05 October 2022

I concur the opinion and advise of experts, as a daughter of deceased you are liable to pay the debt and entitled for estate left behind.
