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