Report No. 110

24.3. Section 143-Bequest of certain sum where stocks etc., in which invested are described.-

What are not specific legacies is a matter to which the Act devotes a large number of sections. The intention to distinguish a property must be clear. On this principle, section 143 provides as under:-

"143. Where a certain suit is bequeathed, the legacy is not specific merely because the stock, funds or securities in which it is invested are described in the will.


A bequeathes to B.

"10,000 rupees of my funded property:"

"10,000 rupees of my property now invested in shares of the East Indian Railway Company".

"10,000 rupees, at present secured by mortgage of Rampur Factory:" No one of these legacies is specific."

The illustrations make amply clear the purport of the section, and no change appears to be needed, in the section.
