Faridkot Royal Family Property Dispute: Putting an end on a three-decade-old inheritance battle, the Supreme Court on Wednesday upheld the Punjab and Haryana High Court's verdict after which the Faridkot Maharaja Harinder Singh Brar's daughters -- Amrit Kaur and Deepinder Kaur -- got the majority share in Rs 25,000-crore assets.
The royal assets include forts, palatial buildings, hundreds of acres of land, jewellery, vintage cars, and a huge amount of money. Faridkot royal family's property dispute was underway for a long time now.
In the meanwhile, the Supreme Court brought down the curtains on a 30-year-old royal dispute that involved properties worth crores. The verdict came in favour of the two surviving daughters of Maharaja Harinder Singh Brar.
If you don't know who was Maharaja Harinder Singh Brar, then let us tell you that he was the last ruler of the erstwhile princely state of Faridkot.
A three-judge bench of the apex court led by the Chief Justice of India (CJI) U.U. Lalit upheld the Punjab and Haryana High Court's verdict on the succession of the maharaja’s property. Notably, the SC had reserved its verdict in July this year.
The top court also directed the immediate dissolution of the Maharawal Khewaji Trust. It is pertinent to mention that the Maharawal Khewaji Trust had been administering the ruler’s properties until now.
