Report No. 81
3.2. Effect of section 3 and the Act of 1956.-
In effect, section 3 empowers1 the specified relatives to apply to the court for guardian ship of the children of the deceased husband-not expressly confined to the children of the marriage-unless a testamentary guardian has been appointed. In this connection, it is necessary to point out that the matter is now fairly amply covered by the Hindu Minority and Guardianship Act2. Re-marriage of a female as such is no disqualification for guardianship under that Act.
