Bangalore, March 20: The Karnataka High Court in its signifigant judgement, has proclaimed that the daughter has an equal share in property as the son. As per this judgement now, marriage is not considered as a hurdle in making a daughter demand her equal share in the property.
This judgement from the High Court means validation of the Hindu Succession (Amendment) Act, 2005.
“Son is a son until he gets a wife; daughter is a daughter throughout her life. A married daughter is also a coparcener and she is entitled to equal share along with the son,” a division bench comprising Justices N Kumar and A N Venugopalagowda said while delivering the judgement.
