When the father died? Date of marriage of a girl is immaterial. Being a co-parcener female has got equal rights in the ancestral property.

I concur with Rajeev Sir.

Agree with Mr Rajeev

As regards ancestral property daughter is equally entitled  to a share in it as son of co-parcenery after the amendment Act which came inot force in 2005(Hindu SuccessionAmendment Act.2005. This will be applicable only to partitions or deemed partitions that effected after coming into force of the Amendment Act.

      As far as the State of Tamil Nadu is concerned , married women who were married before the Hindu Succession (Tamil Nadu)amendment Act came into force in the year 1989 are not entitled for a share in the ancestral property as a member of the coparcenery.
