WRIT PETITION NO.14090 OF 2017

About/from the judgment:

Property Inherited By Female Hindu From Her Parents Shall Devolve Upon Heirs Of Her Father, Not Husband If She Dies Childless!

 

Thus, as per sub section (2) of section 15, notwithstanding anything contained in sub section (1), any property inherited by a female Hindu from her father or mother, shall devolve, in the absence of any son or daughter of the deceased not upon the legal heirs referred in sub section (1) in the order specified therein, but upon the heirs of the father. This provision, thus, clearly excludes the husband from inheriting the property received by a female Hindu from her parents if she was not having any children or has died issueless.
