Gnanambal Ammal v. T.Raju Ayyar

Hindu law – Will – Construction – General Principles – Presumption against intestacy – A presumption against intestacy may be raised if it is justified by the context of the document or the surrounding circumstances; but it can be invoked only when there is undoubted ambiguity in ascertainment of the intentions of the testator.
