though there is an agreement, the natuaral son and adoptive son, both shall have to be entitled to have the equal rights over the entire property, which is self aquired property.

if there is any ancestral property, the natural son will have the absolute interest and right over it.

I agree with Mr  BB R Goud and futher add that ;-

By  valid adoption of a son, the son  will get all the rights and liabilities in yhe adoptive family . The natural son born after the adption . The adoption can not be cancelled .Both  sons shall be treated as sons and have equal rights in Self acquired and Ancesttral Proeprties  of father .

With regard !

Are the parties hidu ? if yes, the adoptive son is not at a better footing than natural son.

a child in hindu family has birth right in ancestral property of which he can not be deprived before or after his birth. so, in ancestral property both sons are entitled , but the proportion of share is diferent in difrent schools of hindu law.

so far self aquired property of adoptive father and validity and efect of agreement is concerned, it can be tested after reading the text of deed.

Agreement registered or not - will have no impediment on the legal heirs

Both sons have  equal rights in properties and an agreement made before the birth of natural son can not disinherit him from his natural right.

1. A adoptive child cannot claim interest on the "Ancestral Property" of his adopted parents, IF there are other  original "natural" line-of-the-tree  claimants available.


2.  A adoptive child does not have  "ancestors".  By law a adoptive child is a "legal heir" BUT NOT A  "NATURAL HEIR".  BUT not for purposes of  "ancestral property", by the logic in point no. 1.


3.  If   "orginal or natural"  line-of-the-tree claimants are not available,  then the ancestral property is transferred to the property as if self-acquired by the adopted parents.  AND whatever is left by the deceased adopted parents is automatically succeded by his adopted son and not otherwise.


This can be disputed and twisted in several ways, if need arises.

both have equal rights - in absence of will in favour of natural son.
