Presumption of joint family

  12 May 2008       Share Bookmark

Court :
In The Hon'ble Supreme Court of India
Brief :
In a suit for partition, the court has observed: The fact that persons were residing together or processing some cultivating lands jointly, by itself would not give rise to a presumption that there existed a joint family fund having a joint nucleus. There being absence of any ‘joint family’ governed by the school of Hindu Law, there could not have existed any joint fund, which conceptualizes existence of a nucleus.
