What are the kinds of possession according to Hindu law and what conditions are to be fulfilled for possession as the proof of ownership?

[Jurisprudence]
In Ancient Hindu law, possession was of two kinds: (a) with title and, (2) without title whose possession continued for three generation. Ownership was never created by possession with title. Possession was proof of ownership if it fulfilled five conditions: it was supported by title; it was continued for a long time ; there was no break in it ; there was no protest even raised against it and it was in the presence of the opposite party. Consequently, where title and possession were in co-existence there was no necessity of further proof of ownership.
