Will the property of a deceased father go only to his son, daughter and wife as per Succession Act or will it go to the deceased person’s mom and dad?

 After the amendment Act of 2005, according to Hindu Law by virtue of section 6, the property of Hindu male dying intestate devolves upon his heirs in Class-I category, which includes Sons, Daughters, Widows, mother etc. Hence, the property will devolve upon son, daughter, wife and mother of the intestate being class-1 legal heirs. Further, the father falls in the category of class-2 heirs.
