Nurul Huda vs Aboobacker
This case features petitioners from the Lakshadweep Islands appealing a lower court judgement that property partition should be done by the per capita and not per stirpes method. The high court finds the lower court decision to be consistent with readings of the Marumakkathayam Act, the Madras Aliyasanthana Act and broadly consistent with existing customary practice. The verdict dismisses the appeal and rules the method of assessment be per capita.
