  A Christian Woman's Right to Property:

According to the Indian Succession Act, 1925, a Christian widow is entitled to one-third of her husbands property.


§ All children get an equal share in the remaining property.

§ Children of pre-deceased sons and daughters get their parents share of the property.

§ In case there are no children, the widow gets Rs.5, 000 along with half the share of the property left after deducting that amount.

§ A child in the womb is also entitled to a share of the property.

§ Any money earned by a Christian woman is her own property. Nobody can take it away from her. She has the right to will away or gift away her own money, jewellery and other property to anybody she wants.

§ Even if a Christian womans father spends money on gifts at her marriage, she is still entitled to a share in her fathers property
