Supreme Court’s Big Decision :


Daughters are also entitled to equal property of the father, even if the father died before the new Hindu Succession Act came into force in 2005.

  • Supreme Court said- ‘Under Hindu Succession Act, daughter is entitled to equal in property”.

The Supreme Court has given a big decision in the favor of daughters. According to the order, now the daughter will also have an equal share in the father’s property. The court made it clear that despite the father’s death before the 2005 Hindu Succession (Amendment) Act, the daughter would be entitled to the share.

Justice Arun Mishra said in the judgment, “Daughters should also get equal rights like sons. The daughter will always be a co-partner, whether her father is alive or not. ”

The order has come as a huge relief for women throughout the country. Many have been fighting property cases for years now and this change will surely be beneficial. Though many conservatives might oppose this law.

Earlier the act only allowed those women to claim the property whose fathers were alive in 2005. Many states had, over the years, amended this law to add this very clause. A change from the Supreme Court was much needed and provides a lot of relief to many women fighting for this .

One thing must be kept in mind that this applies only when there is no will present. When a person has a will, then only those who are mentioned in the same will receive the property, and it will not be according to this law.
