Equal Share to Daughters in Inheritance

During 1983 elections, Telugu Desam Party promised that, if it comes to power, it would give equal share to daughters in the inheritance of the father. Nadendla Bhaskara Rao was the main reason for this point in the manifesto.

To fulfil this promise, Hindu law should be amended. To amend the Hindu law, atleast half of the states should accept it, and the bill should be passed in the Parliament. But, N.T.Rama Rao was in hurry and introduced this bill just for Andhra Pradesh. The bill was passed in A.P. Assembly and got acceptance from the President.

Nadendla says, this will not be valid in the court. Since, there is no provision in Hindu law for this. In the court, only Hindu law is valid, and general resolutions and G.O.s are not valid. Eventhough, NTR boasts that, he introduced this, it is still not valid in the court.
