Ground Report | News Desk | The landmark judgement by the Supreme Court on 11th August, 2020, held that daughters will have coparcenary rights on father’s property even if he died before the Hindu Succession (amendment) Act 2005 came into force.
Further, the supreme court’s verdict also specified that the 2005 amendment in the Hindu Succession Act of 1956 would have a retrospective effect, granting the right of inheritance to the daughters alive during the amendment, even if they were born before it.
Sumi Gupta, Director, Tatsat Foundation, welcomes the Supreme Court’s move to gender equality, and said, “Such thoughtful policy design, judicial activism and political will is needed to address gender concerns in India, where women are still struggling for equal opportunity constantly”. “Please browse through the latest Tatsat Communique to know about more such concerns”, She added.
