SC: Property Rights of Illegitimate Children- Case sent to Larger Bench


The question before Supreme Court was:

What are the property rights of illegitimate children under Hindu Law?
1) Are they entitled to a share in the Coparcenary (Ancestral) property also?

2) Or, are they entitled to only share in self acquired property of parents?

SC bench referred the question to larger Bench.

In my view, social consequences will be disastrous if illegitimate children are given rights in ancestral property.

Because then, adults and also married who are sons/daughters of rich, will be exposed to unlimited honey-traps. The aim of such honey trap will be to get share in Rich Parents property.
