Introduction:
Every citizen of India is guaranteed equality before law and equal protection of the laws irrespective of his gender, caste, creed, and race. The Constitution of India also contains provisions for empowerment of women. The concept of equal social status to women also includes their right to hold and inherit property like the male members of the family. Despite the equality guaranteed by the law of the land, women in India had suffered a lot of inequalities. Prior to the enactment of the Hindu Women’s Right to Properties Act 1937, women were not entitled to a share in the Joint Family Property and succession was governed by survivor ship. As per the rule of survivor ship, on the death of a member of joint and undivided family, his share in the joint family property would pass on to the surviving coparceners, which was inclusive of only the male members of the family.
