Daughters’ Property Rights Under the Hindu Succession Act
Mohan R Bolla

Earlier, daughter in a joint Hindu family had a right to sustenance, but not in the control and ownership of property. Daughters’ right to equality has been recognized by the law by amending the Hindu Succession Act, 1956 by the laudable initiative taken inter alia by the then chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh and the recent amendment of 2005 by the central legislature. But, the law has not been effectively implemented inter alia due to the male chauvinism, lack of awareness among the daughters and the greedy attitude of the brothers. The Hindu Succession (Amendment) Act, 2005—which substituted Section 6 of the Hindu Succession Act, 1956—came into force on September 9, 2005. However, even after the amended law came into force and the judicial pronouncements are in favor of the Hindu daughter, the daughter has been still neglected at the first instance, in her own natal family and everywhere, because of blatant disregard and unjustified violation of these provisions. If there is no conscious exercise of the right by the people, particularly the daughters, there cannot be effective enforcement of the right created by the law. This paper analyzes the legal position and narrates a typical case study of the factors affecting the Hindu daughter’s claim for the ancestral property.

The Legal Aspects of Forensic Science with Reference to Crime Scene Investigation
Arun Kumar Singh and Ameesha Singh

Since the 1970s, significant social, legal, and scientific changes in the criminal justice system and the forensic sciences have altered the silhouettes of the law-science interface. The forensic sciences have made dramatic scientific advances in criminal case processing. The legal system and forensic science aim to produce knowledge and find facts as the foundation for justice with the solitary purpose of assisting the court in its evidential task. Thus, it leads to the solicitation of knowledge and methodology of various disciplines of science to legal matters. The growing implication of science in crime investigation for inquiring, collection, preservation, and analysis of evidence for prosecuting an offender in the court has concreted an easier path for administering justice. The paper reviews the role of physical evidence in investigation process and criminal profiling and offers suggestions as to where we need to focus our efforts. Thus, the aim is to define a scientific and legal framework for effective administration of criminal justice system in India.

RFCTLARR Act, 2013: Implementation Issues and Challenges
S V Damodar Reddy

While land acquisition is necessary and inevitable for economic and social development, the power of government to acquire land under the “Doctrine of Eminent Domain” is draconian as well as in violation of human rights of the land owners under the Land Acquisition Act, 1894. This paper discusses the provisions of the much talked-about peoplefriendly Right to Fair Compensation and Transparency in Land Acquisition, Rehabilitation and Resettlement Act, 2013 (RFCTLARR Act, 2013) which is said to imbibe the maxims Salus populi est supreme lex and Necessitas public major est quam privata. The paper also discusses the issues related to implementation of this Act in letter and spirit and how unjust efforts are made to water down the provisions of the RFCTLARR Act, 2013.

The Legal Quest for Gender Equality with Reference to Women’s Status in the Globalized World
Ch. Lakshmi

The role of women in India has been changing and they are now emerging from the past traditions into a new era of freedom and rights due to globalization. Though women in Vedic ages proved that they were as competent as men in all aspects, till date their status is a contentious issue. Many egalitarians strive to promote and emancipate women from traditional views. Despite the fact that women are being educated and are on a par with men in many aspects and are found in all fields including defense forces, corporate world, and politics, the patriarchal nature of Indian society stops them from having careers that contravene their family life. Although the constitution provides equal opportunities to women and conversely Indian courts strive to protect and promote the status of women in achieving equal status, modern women are in a dilemma as regards having a career. This paper aims to highlight the judiciary’s quest on gender equality, the contemporary position of Indian women and the complexities in achieving their rights which are guaranteed under human rights instruments.
