Report No. 22

11. Clause 2(m)-"Prohibited relationship".-

It has been suggested that the words "ancestor" and "ancestress" in Explanations II and III to the definition of "prohibited relationship" are inappropriate in the context and that the words "father" and "mother" should be substituted as more appropriate. The words "ancestor" and "ancestress" are, however, terms of art, meaning the lineal ascendant with reference to the concept of full blood. These are the words used in the Hindu Marriage Act and the Hindu Succession Act, and for uniformity it has been considered advisable to retain these words.
