Rulers Of Princely States Were ''Maharajas Without Praja '': Top Court

Thursday, August 1, 2019, 8:06 AM

Rulers of princely-states were ''Maharajas'' without ''praja'', sovereignty and territory after the merger-of-states with the Indian-Union, and their personal-properties could not be treated as attached to the ''gaddi'' or rulership. The bench rejected contention and held that the Muslim Personal Law Application Act, 1937 will apply and since Nawab Raza Ali Khan was Shia, his estate will devolve upon his heirs under the Muslim-personal-law.
