India amended the Hindu succession act in September 2005 which resulted in daughters getting equal share and rights to inherited & ancestral property. However, this amendment only applied to daughters born after this date – quite odd right?

There was much confusion as multiple state and lower courts interpreted this amendment differently – some made it applicable to all daughters and others to only those born after this amendment.
