PARTITION OF FAMILY PROPERTY UNDER THE HINDU LAW IS NOT A MERE DIVISION OR DISTRIBUTION OF PROPERTIES OR A MERE ENFORCEMENT OF WHAT MAY BE STRICTLY DESCRIBED AS LEGAL RIGHTS.

Division Bench of Court in the case of Veerabhadrappa v. Lingappa, AIR 1963 Mysore 5 wherein it is held : "It is well to remember that a partition of family property under the Hindu Law is not a mere division or distribution of properties or a mere enforcement of what may be strictly described as legal rights. The nature of right in respect of joint family properties, its management and its enjoyment by the several members of the family are such that it cannot possibly be equated to considerations appropriate to English law ideas of joint tenancy or tenancy in common nor as the position of joint family Manager one comfortably assimilated in English Law ideas of trusteeship, agency or mere managership."
