right of to farther's property


Hindu Father died in the year 1982 left 7 children behind in which 3 are son and 4 are daughters .

Till now (year 2020) property is not partitioned. But right
over father's property to daughter was given by the Hindu succession amendment act 2005 and father died before this amendment.

so my question is that - are daughters have right over property of father in the partition

The property, if self acquired (and not ancestralc), is vested with all the legal heirs including the daughters.

Yes they have but notional partition takes palce.  Son will get more share than the daughters

The querist no where has stated that notional partition has taken place. It is my considered opinion that suggestion should not be gdc on assumptions and presumptions.

Daughters have equal right in the intestat property left behind by deceased father. 

There are various relevant questions which have not been posted by you, therefore, it is advisable to consult a local prudent lawyer for better appreciation of facts/ documents, professional guidance and necessary proceeding.

Hi,

In 2005, the Supreme Court had passed a landmark amendment to The Hindu Succession Act of 1956, granting daughters the right to inherit ancestral property along with their male relatives under the amended section 6.

However, The Supreme Court in the case Prakash vs Phulavati held that the daughter and the father, both must be alive for the amended section to take effect. If the father has died before the commencement of the Act, his case would be governed by the pre-amended section 6.

In such a case, the ancestral property would devolve only upon the male coparceners of the Hindu Undivided Family (HUF), and form a part of their estate for succession purposes.

If a daughter of a coparcener died before the commencement of the Act, her heirs would have no right in the coparcenary property as she would not have acquired any rights in the coparcenary property.

In this case, you won't have any rights as per the ruling of the Supreme Court.

I hope this solves your query.

Regards,

Archit.

Confusion, misinterpretation, half-knowledge, over knowledge, etc made the division in the families and after 2005 enactment, either for greed or for any other reasons, there are no cordial relations in between siblings in several cases.   Some daughters might have acquired some rights, without studying the facts and circumstances others daughters are assuming Why not we also? and treating the brothers as treacherous.
