Married Women in India are denied equal rights under Hindu Succession Act 1956.
But it was amended on September 9,2005 to provide the right to parental property for daughters as an equal right since birth.
Still there is a loophole in the amended act.
That is this amendment is not valid on property partitioned before 2005.
So the woes of women are only partially benefited. There are numerous cases where the male members are enjoying the fruits of property income arised out of Ancestral Property without sharing the due share to their sisters who are suffering in poverty.
