If the person died after 2005; the recent amendment of 2005 to the Hindu Succession Act of 1956, a daughter is also considered equal to a son. Therefore, said property devolves to them in equal amounts.  Bearing that in mind to answer your question, 

Section 05, read along with Section 08 and Schedule I to the Act, applies to this situation. depending on the type of property (self-acquired/ ancestral). 

therefore, please state the type of property to offer you a precise answer.
