Division of ancestral property

  • 1 Answer

There was an ancestral Hindu property which belonged to my grandmother.She had 5 daughters of which 2 daughters were unmarried & a son who were my aunties & uncle.The uncle had taken his share long back after the grandmother expired.Now there is only one aunty surviving.The rest of the survivors are 2 sons of my mother & 1 daughter of an aunty & 1 daughter of the surviving aunty. Can somebody please guide if the share is divided in 5 parts or more.i.e. If there were 2 unmarried daughters who have expired now - will their share have to be shared with the Uncle's children when the Uncle has already take his share. Your reply will be highly appreciated.

Answer 1

You all are equal legal heirs of unmarried daughter.  So only 5 shares as u rightly ascertained.
