Report No. 81
2.11. Section 24, Hindu Succession Act considered.-
It may be noted that the repeal of section 2 as recommended above1 will in no way affect the operation of section 24 of the Hindu Succession Act2 which disqualifies the widow of a predeceased son or the widow of a predeceased son of a predeceased son or the widow of a brother, from succeeding to the property of an intestate as such a widow, if, on the date the succession opens, she has remarried. That provision will continue to apply to cases falling within its scope.
