Illegitimate Hindu child’s right to property

The laws on social issues in the Hindu religion - marriage, succession, and guardianship -- were framed in 1956. Various amendments have been effected by Parliament and state legislatures from time to time to address prickly issues which surfaced after being kept under the carpet for years being viewed as uncomfortable.
One important amendment was carried out in 1976 to Section 16 of the Hindu Marriage Act, 1956, conferring the right of inheritance to the father's property on children born out of void or voidable marriages, whether or not so declared by a court of law.
