1) this is not ancestral property 

2) your father inherited property on his father demise . 

3)sons and daughters would have equal share in property . 

4) in other words each legal heir has one tenth share in property 

5) the judgment of SC is applicable only to ancestral property

Supreme Court ka judgment sirf ancestral property ko apply karta hai lekin aisa pratit hota hai ki aapki property ancestral nahin hain. Agar aapka pitaji ne koi will nahin banayi to unkey waris unke sabhi bachey hain. So daughters have an indefeasible share.

Hi, as the property is the ancestral property of your father  and your father died in the year 1984 it self, from the latest Supreme Court ruling daughters can't claim share in the property.

after the judgment of phulwati vs prakash, daughter cannot claim her share in the ancestral property if her father is died before 9/9/2005 . kyoki uske pahle putri ko sahdayik nahi mana jata tha, kewal sahdayik hi paitrik sampatti mein hissa pa sakta hai,  bati sahdayik ke paribhasa mein nahi aati thi to is karan wo hissa pane ke haqdar nahi thi. 

aapke mamle mein bahno ko koi hissa nahi milega, kyoki father ka death 2005 se pahle ho gaya hai. jab father ka death hua tab automatically ancestral property aapke hit mein devolve ho gaya tha, jab property ek baar devolve ho gaya to fir se aapke legal heirs ko jayega, aapki bahno ko nahi.


aapki bahan aapki legal heir nahi hai.  aap chahe to bahno ko gift kar sakte hain.

Now that condition of marriage before 9th Sept 2005 has been removed.  Now even the women are equally entitled for share in ancestral property also.  Hence, even the women are equally entitled (either it may be self acquired or ancestral) along with male.
