What is Coparcenary:

The Hindu Succession Act, 1956 gave women equal inheritance rights with men. But the daughters were not given a birth right in the ancestral property under the Mitakshara coparcenary. Coparcenary refers to equal inheritance which was restricted only to male members of the Hindu Undivided Family. It is a narrower body of persons within a joint family. Coparceners jointly inherit property and have unity of possession.
Coparcenary is limited to three generations next to the holder. If a man has sons, grandsons and great-grandsons living, all of these constitute a single coparcenary with him. The share of coparceners in the joint coparcenary property was fluctuating which diminished and enlarged with the birth and death of a coparcener in the family. No female was a member of the coparcenary in Mitakshara law before the Hindu Succession (Amendment) Act, 2005. If the family owned a dwelling house, then the daughter's right was confined only to the right of residence and not possession or ownership. The daughter has been made a coparcener by birth in the joint property after coming into force of the Hindu Succession (Amendment) Act, 2005.
