A district autonomous council in Meghalaya is attempting to modify a customary practice of inheritance of the Khasi tribe in which the youngest daughter of the family is bequeathed the full share of parental property.
The Khasi Hills Autonomous District Council (KHADC), an autonomous body under the Sixth Schedule of the Constitution, is scheduled to introduce the bill.
The bill has been named Khasi Hills Autonomous District Khasi Inheritance of Property Bill, 2021 for “equitable distribution” of parental property among siblings.
The Khasis are a matrilineal society and trace inheritance and descent through the mother’s clan.
