Whether the Appellants would be entitled as Coparceners By birth at par with the sons and therefore be entitled to equal share as the sons do?
Both the pre-2005 and post-2005 effects of Section 6 of the Hindu Succession Act, 1956 were considered by the Honourable Court. The court reversed the High Court's decision and ruled that the Appellant's side had a strong case thanks to the changes made to Section 6 of the Hindu Succession Act in 1956.
This modification made it such that women have always had the same legal rights and status as men and are considered coparceners by default. The Court has ruled that as of the day the Amended Act went into effect, it applies to daughters of live coparceners.
