“DAUGHTERS HAVE EQUAL RIGHT TO INHERIT PROPERTY “

I WAS READINNG NEWSPAPER IN THE MORNING WHEN MY EYES STUCK ON THIS HEADLINE AND MY HAPPINESS KNEW NO BOUNDS.NOW , DAUGHTERS ARE EQUALLY INHERITABLE FOR THE INHERIT PROPERTY IN THE TRADITIONAL FAMILY BUSINESS THAT IS IN THE JOINT HINDU FAMILY SYSTEM . IT WILL HAVE RETROSPECTIVE EFFECT TO A 2005 AMENDMENT TO THE HINDU SUCCESSION ACT OF 1956 . IT IS THE BEST NEWS WHICH I HAVE READ TODAY AND NOT ABLE TO RESIST MYSELF FROM SHARING IT WITH ALL THE READERS . IN ADDITION TO THIS , I ALSO HAVE A THOUGHT IS N’T TOO LATE ? IF TI WOULD HAVE PASSED IN THE LAW WHEN IT WAS BEING MADE , THEN , DAUGHTERS HAVE HAD THIS RIGHT SO FAR , IS N’T ? . WELL , ITS VERY LATE BUT THE DECISION MADE IS THE BEST , SHOWING THE UPGRADATION IN THE LEVEL OF THINKING IN THE MINDS OF FEW PEOPLE.

IN THE HINDU SUCCESSION ACT OF 1956 , NOW , DAUGHTERS ARE THE COPARCENERS IN THE HINDU UNDIVIDED FAMILY AND HOLD THE COPARCENERY RIGHTS IRRESPECTIVE OF WHETHER FATHER IS ALIVE OR NOT. THIS AMENDMENT WAS MADE IN 2005 , AT PRESENT GIVING THE RETROSPECTIVE EFFECT FOR THE AMENDMENT MADE . MOST OF THE FAMILIES MUST HAVE PUZZLED OUT THE ACCOMODATION OF THE SHARE OF BUSINESS THAT IS TO BE GIVEN TO THEIR DAUGHTERS. THE ISSUE LIES WHERE THE FAMILY DOES N’T ACCEPT THE RIGHTS OF THE DAUGHTERS .IN THE TRADITIONAL SENSE , SOME OF THE FAMILIES MAY NOT GREET THEIR DAUGHTERS IN FAMILY BUSINESS WHICH IS DEFEATING THE OBJECTIVE . MR RAMACHANDRAN ALSO ADDED ABOUT THE JOINT AND LARGE FAMILY BUSINESS , SHOULD BE OPEN TO RECOGNISE THE RIGHTS OF THE DAUGHTER .

FROM NOW ONWARDS , EVERY DAUGHTER HAS EQUAL RIGHT IN BEING THE PART OF THEIR BUSINESS .

THE JUDGEMENT SAYS ”THE DAUGHTERS CAN NO LONGER BE DEPRIEVED OF THEIR RIGHTS T0 ANCESTRAL PROPERTY , NO MATTER WHEN THEY WERE BORN ” .
