A woman's property is always her absolute property.
There is no change in this law.
in fact the amendment in 2005 and SC judgment in 2015 have enlarged the rights of woman in ancestral properties. this is in line with the state amendments bought in states like andhra pradesh(1986), tamil nadu, Kerala, karnataka and maharashtra.
