Mayank Vats, Leepakshi Rajpal

Abstract


This paper primarily focuses on the concept of the Hindu Joint Family and its legal dimensions. It commences with some introduction as to what exactly is the Hindu Joint Family (HJF). It talks about how the concept varies in its approach when the school of thought changes for instance in the Mitakshara and the Dayabhaga, school of thought . This paper discusses about the classical school of thought. As it further escalates in its approach, it moves onto discussing the composition of the Hindu Joint Family, because though it is a common term, many do not know what a Hindu Joint Family means. As it discusses the various aspects of the Hindu Joint Family, it also in detail discusses the characteristics or the incidents of the same. It further moves into discussing the Rights available to the members of the Hindu Joint Family and also discusses the legislative measures that have been taken to ensure and clear the concept of the Hindu Joint Family. It also discusses about the laws that are applicable in the non patriarchal society i.e. the matriarchal families. Last but not the least, the paper ends with certain set of recommendations and conclusions and wishes to approach a larger section of the society, so as to clear the meaning and the concept of the Hindu Joint Family.
