Supreme Court of India, on Tuesday, announced an important verdict on Tuesday, stating that a child born even without marriage would also be constituting a right to the property of her father.
Supreme Court in its latest decision said - if the woman and man have been in a relationship for a long time, then it would be considered marriage and the child born out of this relationship will also be having a share in the property of her father.
Supreme court while hearing cancelled the verdict of the Kerala Highcourt in which it refused to consider a youth a shareholder of his father’s property cause his father and mother didn’t tie the knot with each other. The court during the hearing said,”no matter if the couple had not tie knots with each other but if they’d been living together like a couple for a long time than the child born from such relationship holds right on the property of her father.
What did the Kerala Highcourt said?
The young guy from Kerala knocked on the doors of the Kerala High Court after his father didn’t consider him as a shareholder of his property. The guy to the Kerala Highcourt said he was denied of his property stating him an illegitimate son. Kerala High Court too rejected the youth’s claim and said- the young guy’s mother was not married to the person upon which he has been claiming the right for property, thus, he cannot be considered to be entitled to the property of the family.
