The Supreme Court recently made a historic decision about the rights of daughters to property. It ruled that daughters would have equal coparcenaries rights in Hindu Undivided Family (HUF) properties despite whether or not the father coparcener has died before the amendment.

B-town celebs have taken to their social media handles to celebrate the verdict.

“In a landmark decision, the Supreme Court ensures the unconditional right of a daughter to her parent’s property. It gives daughters inheritance right to parental property by birth. A great day in the march for gender equality,” Farhan Akhtar tweeted.

Actress Shraddha Kapoor posted a screenshot of the news on Instagram Stories and wrote: “About time! Equality.”

Ayushmann Khurrana took to his Instagram stories to celebrate the decision. He wrote, ”The Supreme Court on Tuesday held that daughters, like sons, have an equal birthright to inherit ancestral property and the amendment to the Hindu Succession Act, 1956 will have retrospective effect. A big step, a necessary step and I welcome this verdict wholeheartedly”.

“The decision by the Apex Court of India is historic. It gives daughters inheritance right to parental property by birth. So either son or daughter, both are deemed equal,” veteran actor Shabana Azmi also tweeted about the judgment.

The apex court on Tuesday ruled that daughters have equal rights in the Hindu Undivided Family (HUF) ancestral property. The court held that a daughter gets coparcenary rights in the property even if her father passed away prior to the amendment made to the Hindu Succession Act in 2005.

A bench, headed by Justice Arun Mishra and comprising Justices S. Abdul Nazeer and M.R. Shah, said: “The provisions contained in the substituted Section 6 of the Hindu Succession Act, 1956 confer the status of coparcener on the daughter born before or after amendment in the same manner as a son with same rights and liabilities.”
