Hindu succession act 1956 is amended in 2005 and the main amendmend is " On and from the commencement of the hindu succession(amendment) act 2005, in a joint Hindu Family governed by the Mitaktshara law the daughter of the coparcener shall:
a)by birth become a coparcener in her own right in the same manner as the son;

Equality before law. No gender discrimination. Nowadays courts are liberal in their verdict favoring women .
