The Supreme Court has made it clear through its decision that on 5 September 2005 Parliament amended the Succession Act of the undivided Hindu family. Through this amendment, daughters were treated as an equal share in the ancestral property. In such a situation, even before these amendments came into force on September 9, 2005, if a person has died and the property is divided later, then the share will have to be given to the daughters.

Please tell that in the year 1985 when NT Rama Rao was the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh. At that time, he passed the law of equal shareholding of daughters in ancestral property. Just 20 years after this, in 2005, the Parliament passed the law to treat daughters as equal shareholders of equal sons in ancestral property for the whole country. This case was about the sharing of property between sister brothers.
There was a plea of the sister in the Supreme Court in which the brothers refused to give their sister an equal share of the property, saying that the father had died before 2005 in September 9. Therefore this amendment will not be applicable in this case. The Supreme Court has made it clear through its decision that even if a father has died before 9 September 2005, daughters will get an equal share of sons in the property.
While giving this decision, the Bench of Justice Arun Mishra has made it clear that daughters will get share in property equal to sons. That means it will clear another way to strengthen the female power.
