Dowry and Inheritance

Dowry given to a woman at the time of her wedding and ancestral inheritance are often confused. However, these two are absolutely different. Giving
dowry is an evil practice that has percolated down generations. It
started out with a noble cause of giving the bride a share in the
inheritance to help her begin her life and have assets to fall back on.
But, it has taken the shape of gifts in the form of jewellery,
furniture, house, motor vehicle, cash, etc., for which the bride and
her parents are often severely pressurised, leading to many crimes.
Dowry is prohibited under the Dowry Prohibition Act under sec. 498A IPC
but, the practice is still in vogue. Dowry and inheritance are not the
same thing. Sec. 498A does not disentitle a girl from her right or
share in the Will, nor does giving dowry.
