Adiyalath Katheesumma And Anr. vs Adiyalath Beechu Alias Umma

 | 1949

The verdict features a lengthy discussion about division in family status by issuing a notice of intention to the manager or karnavan without notifying other family members in Hindu family law (Mitakshara Joint Family) and Marumakkattayam law. This case deals with a petitioner appealing a lower court decision that claimed his declaration of severance of joint family status to the karnavan was not enough as a legal notice. The high court grants the appeal noting the legal standard was met by notifying the managing member as stated in precedents from both legal traditions.
