Can a Hindu divorced woman claim her ex-husband’s property after his death?

 As per the traditional laws, a Hindu divorced woman can claim her ex-husband’s property, provided she did not re-marry after the divorce. This was mentioned in section 24 of the Hindu Succession Act 1956. However, by virtue of the Amendment of 2005, section 24 has been deleted and now, even if a widow re-marries, she can still claim her right in the property of her ex-husband.
