Her rights come into play only in case of Anuj's death. Which is why each share gets divided the way I've explained.
heeey I'm sorry thats not right!!!!!!...this is not the way a persons property is divided !!!!
If a person dies without any will then the property will be divided equally between his children and wife (but here naniji is dead) so three equal shares ...and 'Thats IT'!!!! ...there won't be any further divisions!!
Avantika,Anuj and preethi gets equal shares .. No... none of his grandchildren have any legal right over his property when his children are alive !!!.Adi,Rubel or Kaira won get anything...
so if at all anuj dies without a will ( only in that case) his share will be equally divided between Kaira and Rubul ...rubel gets 1/2 of the 1/3 of total share thats 1/6 ...and that is 16% of the total share
The reason such a provision has been added in the inheritance laws is to protect the rights of children born to first/second spouse or those born out of wedlock. This way these children cannot be cheated out of their rights.
