Description
Hindu law is an age-old yet an age-less system of law. The Hindu law is not a complete code but a system rooted in the Vedas enounced in the Smritis, expounded by ancient commentators and supplemented & varied by custom & usage. The Hindu Succession Act is an Act amending and codifying the law relating to intestate succession among Hindus.
Reflection of the latest Amendment
With the enforcement of the Hindu Succession {Amendment) Act, 2005 radical changes took place in devolution of interest in coparcenary property. Sections 23 and 24 have been deleted. In the instant edition, the law as it stands following the Amending Act of 2005 has been elucidated with mastery. The author has taken every measure to discuss how the Hindu law of succession has been varied, altered, added to and subtracted from by various statutory provisions. An in-depth study and brilliant exposition of the Hindu Succession Act, 1956, have been made incorporating the current decisions of the apex court and different High Courts. The Author has focused on and portrayed the basic conditions to be concurrently satisfied to enable the daughter of a coparcener to become coparcener by birth.
Intricate problems dealt with
All the important decisions of different fora are discussed with critical comments wherever they so demand. All the intricate issues relating to the subject including—right of child in womb, right of daughter in coparcenary property, effect of remarriage of widow, mode of succession of heirs, property alienated by karta of HUF, effect of repeal of s. 23, pious obligation of son, preferential right, murderer's disqualification, Hindu woman's right to stridhana, succession to maiden's property— are eruditely dealt with.
