Machikandi Parkum Maramittath … vs Varayalankandi Kunhi Pokker And

 | 1915

The case features a detailed discussion of the nature and intent when a gift of properties is made under Marumakkathayam Law. The central issue is whether such properties are presumed to be exclusive properties of the branch or tavazhi consisting of the mother and her children. The high court on reviewing previously established case law finds in this situation that properties given to a wife and children following the Marumakkathayam Law, they as a tavazhi hold those properties with the incidents of tarwad property. The verdict also finds that the right of management of the properties is vested in the senior male member of that tavazhi.
