The Family Laws of Goa, Daman and Diu are different from that unlike in the rest of India, where the Law of Succession is contained in independent acts,viz. Indian Succession Act, 1925, Hindu Succession act, 1956. The Succession Law in force here is part of a code known as Civil Code. The Civil Code covers almost all the fields of substantive law on the civil side having 2538 Articles. Articles 1735 to 2166 deal with Succession.
This volume contains the translation of Articles 1735 to 2166. It also covers provisions related to Inventory Proceedings, Provisions of Donations, Executions of Wills, Special Rules of Succession, Gifts, Notarial Law, and Civil Code regarding rights of citizens and non-citizens.
