This edition, in near proximity to the earlier one, has been necessitated in view of important judicial pronouncements in the interregnum. Several important decisions have been rendered by the courts, and have been commented upon. These include the seminal and important aspect as to whether _ a notional partition, under the erstwhile section 6 of the Hindu Succession Act, would bring about an actual partition, resulting into the disruption of a Mitakshara coparcenery, which is an issue of considerable importance, in view of the decision of the Supreme Court. Further, the issue whether personal laws have primacy of consideration over other statutes when the question of application of such laws arises in conjunction with personal law has also been adverted to, in view of the observations of the Supreme Court in this regard. Several other judgments of the Supreme Court and High Courts under the classical Hindu law and the four acts have also been commented upon, where necessary. I appreciate the assistance of Miss Manushi S Desai, Advocate and Miss Aarushi S Desai in helping me with legal research. A word of thanks is also due to my publishers LexisNexis. I dedicate this edition in memoriam of my father. Case law as on 1 December 2017 has been commented upon, where necessary and expedient.
