Interpretation of the term “succession to heirs male”

Interpretation of the term “succession to heirs male”. Paragraph 158 of the Land Administration Manual - The conventional expression “succession to heirs male” when used in the original order conveying sanction to a grant, means that the grant descends to a single heir, unless a different rule of succession is specially prescribed.  For the purposes of this ruling the term “heir male” may be taken to be the equivalent of “male issue”.

Rule 8 of the Punjab Pension and Revenue Assignment Rules, 1937- This ruling applies only to assignments of land revenue granted in perpetuity after the 25th November, 1859.  In the absence of any provision to the contrary in the grant such assignments descent integrally to a single heir, whose right does not become complete until his succession has been confirmed by the local Government.  This confirmation may, if cause should arise, be withheld.
