For decades and centuries, women have had no kind of share or ownership in father's property because of the domination of men in succession. With the codification of Hindu Succession Act,1956 and later the Amendment Act of 2005, this disparity between males and females have been done away with. This paper has made an attempt to review and analyse the changes brought by the Amendment Act particularly and to what extent it has been successful in eradicating the notable discrimination of women's rights in property. It has also made an effort to understand the intention of the legislatures in bringing about this amendment with the help of judicial interpretations.
