The high court bench observed that only on two grounds would married women born after 1956 would not be able to stake claim for co-parcenary property-if there has already been a registered will on which the property has been allotted; and secondly, if there has been finality in the decision in a court. The high court has ordered that married women born after 1956 will be entitled to an equal right of inheritance of ancestral property from parents. According to the Hindu Succession Act (1956) the right to ancestral property was not given to married women. But it was amended on September 9, 2005, to provide the right to parental property for daughters as an equal right since birth.Answered by sumati gayki, 19 Jul '10 10:11 am
