Daughter's property rights can be curbed by father's biased will - To protect the women's property rights whattsapp to our service No.9840802218

One way to mitigate this rampant gender bias is to take a leaf out of the Muslim law, which imposes a limit on the freedom of testamentary disposition. The Muslim father can will away a maximum of one-third of his property while the rest is divided among his legal heirs of both genders.


Significantly, when the Law Commission asked in 2000 whether such a restriction should be imposed on the freedom of the Hindu father as well, the majority of the respondents favoured this radical idea. Those reform seekers were, however, almost evenly divided on whether the right of testamentary disposition should be confined to one-third or one half of the Hindu's self-acquired properties. Even as it admitted that "there has been a strong demand for placing a restriction on the right of testamentary disposition", the Law Commission without giving any reasons said that after "due deliberation" it was "not inclined" to go so far in its recommendations.


The equality granted to the Hindu daughter in the context of ancestral property cannot make much difference on the ground unless this concept of curtailing the right to will away self-acquired properties is adopted. This may , however, amount to privileging equality over liberty to check a mischief.

Married daughter rights in fathers property - To protect your right Whattsapp service No.9840802218

The Supreme Court announced that a married daughter is entitled to inherit her father's property, even if his wife and son are alive. As per a report published in TOI, the SC ruling came during a hearing in which a man had nominated his married daughter's name to own his cooperative society flat after his death.

Biswa Ranjan Sengupta's decision was challenged by his widow and her son, citing the rules of the West Bengal Cooperative Societies Rules, 1987 and provisions of the WB Cooperative Societies Act, 1983.

Woman cannot claim right over property of in-laws: Delhi court
Sengupta was reportedly living with his married daughter Indrani Wahi in his last days due to the ill-treatment meted to him by his wife and his only son. The high court headed by a single judge directed Indrani to let the flat registered in her name but at the same time it also said Indrani was a part shareholder of the property along with Sengupta's wife and son and that she could dispose of the property only with the express consent of other shareholders. Following this ruling, Indrani appealed in the Supreme Court.
Whether Daughter-in-law have right in parents-in-law's property

A bench of justices JS Khehar and C Nagappan pronounced,"There can be no doubt that where a member of a cooperative society nominates a person in consonance with provisions of the rules, on the death of such member, the cooperative society is mandated to transfer all the share or interest of such member in the name of the nominee." "The rights of others on account of inheritance or succession is a subservient right. Only if a member had not exercised the right of nomination under Section 79 of the Act, then and then alone, the existing share or interest of the member would devolve by way of succession or inheritance", they said.

In 2013, the Supreme Court had said that a daughter's right to ancestral property does not arise if the father died before the amendment to Hindu law came into force in 2005.

Property Rights for Daughters in India - To Protect your rights whattsapp service No.9840802218


The Hindu Succession Act, 1956, originally didn't give daughters equal rights to ancestral property. This disparity was removed by an amendment that came into force on September 9, 2005.
The issue came up before the bench of chief justice Mohit Shah, judges MS Sanklecha and MS Sonak after conflicting views on the matter expressed separately by a single judge and a division bench.
A division bench had opined that the amendment applied to daughters born on or after September 9, 2005. As regards daughters born before 9 September 2005, the judges held that they would get rights in the property upon the death of their father-coparcener (head of a joint family) on or after September 9, 2005.
The bench's final word :
"The amended section 6 applies to daughters born prior to June 17, 1956 or thereafter (between June 17, 1956 and September 8, 2005), provided they are alive on September 9, 2005, that is on the date when the amendment act of 2005 came into force," the judges observed in their order, running into 72 pages.

Now  in the first case your mother and other sibling cannot claim the share as that was gifted by you grandfather in his life time. However all of the children (i.e 3 sisters including your mother and 1 brother) of your grandfather have equal right on the other house and plot land .

The gift from father to his son is not part of ancestral property as the son does not inherit the property on the death of the grandfather or receive it by partition made by the grandfather during his lifetime. The grandson has no legal right on such property because his grandfather chose to bestow a favour on his father which he could have bestowed on any other person as well.

Thus, the interest which he takes in such property must depend upon the will of the grantor and therefore, when the son has got the property from his father as a gift, his sons or daughter cannot claim part in it calling it ancestral property. He can alienate the gifted property to anyone he likes and in any way he likes. Such a property is treated as self-acquired property, provided there is no expressed intention in the deed of the gift by the grandfather while gifting the property to his son. (C. N. Arunachala Mudaliar vs C. A. Muruganatha Mudaliar)

Sons and daughters have property rights only on the properties that have devolved upon their father and become ancestral property in the father’s hands.
The full bench disagreed with this and stated that the daughters would have equal share in the ancestral property, irrespective of their date of birth.

Women's Property Rights in Tamilnadu - Call your Lawyer to stop the discrimination by your family @ 9840802218

One has to consider the rights of the sisters even before the amended Act 2005, i.e from the date of death of the father. It is not correct to assume that the daughters had no right at all in the joint family property before the Amendment Act, 2005. They had a right in the father's share along with mother and brothers after the Hindu Succession Act, 1956. The only difference is that the Amendment Act gave them a larger right equal to that of the brother as a coparcener and not merely as a successor to the share of the father to be shared with the brothers and the mother as under the Hindu Succession Act, prior to amendment. It also requires notice that the mother's share out of the father's share in the joint family property will devolve on sons and daughters equally on her death , as it is her individual property.
But the right of the daughters prior to the Amendment Act demarcates their interest in the joint family property. Such right can be enforced on their demand for partition or on the occasion of partition. Since it appears that it has not been done, their right to this extent available on the pre-amendment law would remain with them.
But their right got enlarged, if they were unmarried under the State amendment which recognised the right of unmarried daughters in Andhra Pradesh with effect from September 5, 1985, Tamil Nadu with effect from March 25, 1989, Karnataka with effect from July 30, 1994 and Maharashtra with effect from June 22, 1984 with some other States following this law giving them equal right as the sons but confined only to the daughters who were unmarried as on the date on which the respective law came into force. But as stated earlier, if they had not asked for partition, their right will stand demarcated in the joint family property to be available to them on partition. But both married and unmarried daughters have a share out of mother's share, which will go to reduce the joint family property on mother's death.
The law in Tamil Nadu had already come into force on March 25, 1989, the unmarried sisters therefore have a right in the joint family property equal to that of the reader. If, on the other hand, as presumed by the reader, the property was not joint family property but the absolute property of the father, both married and unmarried daughters, after the Hindu Succession Act had come into force, would have equal right because the law would recognize succession of wife, mother, sons and daughters as Class-I heirs with equal right.
Hindu Succession (Amendment) Act, 2005, would make no difference on succession prior to September 5, 2005, the date on which it had come into force.
These are matters of civil law relating to which broad aspects of succession law are indicated in view of frequent enquiries addressed to this column. The reader is advised to get competent legal advice on the Hindu succession law, if he needs it.

Can Contempt lies against who withdraws Mutual Consent

After signing the agreement by mutual consent to file for divorce, will either of the partner face contempt proceedings if they have any 2nd thought? That is the question the Delhi HC asked recently while referring to a batch of 8 separate divorce petitions to a larger bench. There have been contradictory views in earlier rulings Justice Manmohan expressed some serious doubts on the practice of the courts hauling up spouses for contempt if they fail to honour their earlier stand of divorce by mutual consent during the 6 month “cooling off” period. Section 13 B of the Hindu Marriage Act allows for ‘divorce by mutual consent’ in a 2 step process. The 1st motion of divorce can be filed by a couple if they haven’t been living together for at least one year. After this, the law mandates a “waiting period or cooling off period” of 6 to 18 months. When this period ends, the spouses can either withdraw their consent, & attempt to continue their married life, or file the 2nd motion for divorce, after this their separation is finalized. Even in the case of a “contested divorce”, where there’s a criminal complaint filed by either of the spouses or any 1 of them comes to court for a divorce against the other’s will- the couple gets a waiting period to resolve the differences. During this period of mediation, if the partners agree to the terms of getting mutual separation, then they file a plea for divorce by mutual consent. Say, a couple has filed a divorce petition under Sec. 13B(1) (divorce by mutual consent) or a motion under Section 13B(2) of the Act or both, but then 1 of them decides to change their mind in view of the option to renege/reconsider their decision of taking divorce by mutual consent under Section 13 B(2) of the Act”. the question is whether they should be held liable for contempt? It was raised before the single Bench of the Delhi High Court recently. The Apex Court, and Benches of Mumbai High Court and Delhi High Court earlier have given differing judgments on finality of agreement in the divorce mediations. In one case, the wife had refused to file the 2nd motion through mutual consent for divorce, after receiving part payment of the alimony, as she had “changed her mind” about the terms of custody for her child. The High Court had said that the “erring spouse” can’t be allowed to “take any advantage” of the option allowed in the cases of divorce by mutual consent. Citing many “contradicting judgments”, Justice Manmohan expounded that since Apex Court has held that the “consent” for divorce must “continue till date of the decree”, the right of parties to change their minds cannot be taken away.

How to get Patta in Chennai

Normally when the property is registered by the Purchaser in the registrar office he/she also signs the Patta name transfer document along with his/her sale deed.  This is initialed by the registrar and sent to the revenue office.  But this never happens by itself.  The patta name transfer never happens automatically.  We as a responsible purchaser should follow up with revenue office.  We should approach the surveyor or the deputy Tahsildar for the  obtaining the patta.  We should produce all the sale deed documents and Encumbrance Certificate  of the property.  After verification of the sale deed the surveyor will come to the site for measurement and survey of the property.  After this process he will update the govt records and issue the patta in the name of the present owner.  
 We can also check the “A” register of land records about the type like Nanjai, Punjai, Residential, Industrial and Heavy industry .  If there is any acquisition proceedings underway they may not issue the patta.  Instead they issue a notification of acquisition to the person concerned.  If it is so compensation to the guideline price only given to the customer.  In special case pattas are given to govt lands according to the GO passed by the Govt.  For the weaker section Govt may now and then announce free patta for 1 to 3 cent of land according to the area.
