Report No. 110
42.6. Section 335-Assent of executor to his own legacy.- Section 335 reads:-
"335. (1 ) When the executor or administrator is a legatee, his assent to his own legacy is necessary to complete his title to it, in the same way as it is required when the bequest is to another person, and his assent may in like manner, be expressed or implied.
(2) Assent shall be implied if in his manner of administering the property he does any act which is referable to his character of legatee and is not referable to his character of executor or administrator.
An executor takes the rent of a house or the interest of Government securities bequeathed to him, and applies it to his own use. This is assent."
The section needs no change.
