Intestate Succession As Per The Hindu Succession Act,1956



The Hindu Succession Act,1956 applies if the intestate is Hindu,Buddhist,Jain or Sikh but doesn’t automatically include scheduled tribes.It also includes legitimate or illegitimate children,if one of his/her parents is Hindu,Buddhist,Jain or Sikh.It also includes converts and reconverts to these religions.

When a Hindu male dies intestate i.e.without a will, and has not married a non-Hindu,the right of succession first devolves upon the Class 1 heirs, if any,shown in the diagram to the left. If even one such heir exists, all other relatives who do not fall within this category are excluded automatically.If there are several Class 1 heirs, then there are certain rules as to how they will share the properties amongst themselves.
