The Supreme Court made a big decision regarding daughters’ rights to father’s earning properties. The country’s top court ruled that Hindu daughters are more entitled to inherit their father’s property if the father does not leave a will. A Madras High Court judgment about n and widows under the Hindu Succession Act led to the Supreme Court’s decision.
The Supreme Court ruled in a landmark decision that daughters of a Hindu man who died without a will are entitled to inherit his self-acquired property and other resources and have precedence over the other members of their family.
A bench of Justices S Abdul Nazeer and Krishna Murari ruled that if a Hindu man died without making a will, his inherited property and his property would pass to his sons and daughters equally. Most important is that the new decision will go into effect from the back date. By its order, backdate Court also applies to daughters whose fathers passed away prior to 1956.
The Supreme Court again changed this law in 2020. With this historic ruling, the Supreme Court made it clear that even if someone’s father died prior to September 9, 2005, the daughter would still have the same right to inheritance as the sons.13 hours ago
