Hindu succession act , जो कि 2005 में संशोधित हुआ। उस संशोधन के अनुसार यदि 2005 के बाद पिता की मृत्यु होती है तो उसकी संपत्ति में पुत्री(शादीशुदा या कुवारी) को वही अधिकार प्राप्त होगा जो कि पुत्र को प्राप्त होगा। मा0 सर्वोच्च न्यायालय ने भी प्रकाश बनाम फूलवती वाले मामले में 2017 में यही दिशा निर्देश दिया। आपके भी मामले में यही बात है।आपके नाना नानी की संपत्ति में आपकी माँ को वही अधिकार व हैसियत प्राप्त है जो आपके मामा को।
