Two Sons Deny Care; Woman Gets Property Back | Hubballi News – Times of India

HAVERI: Revenue authorities in Haveri district recently ruled in favour of an elderly parent so she can get back a share in their property after her two sons failed to look after her.
Savanur AC Annapurna Mudakammanavar on January 6 ordered cancellation of the earlier mutation of the property — which her sons had allegedly made illegally — and allotted their mother a share in the property under Maintenance and Welfare of Parents and Senior Citizens Act-2007. Premavva Havalannavar, 76-year-old woman from Veerapur village in Hangal taluk of Haveri district, was abaondoned by her sons. After three years of the legal battle at the AC and tahsildar court, she successfully got a share in the the property — 3.32acre land and a house in the village.
According to sources, Premavva had appealed to the Savanur AC to cancel the mutation as the property documents do not have her name because of the misdeeds of her sons Dhanik Kumar and Santosh. She claims to have been under the care of Idari Institution here after the death of her husband Srikant as her daughters, sons, and daughters-in-law sent her out of the house.
AC Annapurna heard her case and cancelled the mutation done earlier. Hangal tahsildar Yarriswamy ordered addition of Premavva’s name in the land document and the house. “I was harassed by my sons, daughters-in-law and daughters after my husband died. They had even sent me out of the house. Later, I got care at Idari Institution. Now, I got justice from the officials in the revenue department,” Premavva said.
Tahsildar Yarriswamy said the woman has a right on her husband’s property. “But in this case, her sons have illegally skipped Premavva’s name in the property documents after their father died. We have ordered in favour of the woman,” he explained.
Savanur AC Annapurna Mudakammanavar said, “The Kerala high court has given a verdict in similar cases. It said the act contemplates rights of senior citizens beyond the right of maintenance. In Premavva’s case, Maintenance and Welfare of Parents and Senior Citizens Act-2007 was violated. Now, we have addressed her concerns.”
