Please firstly note that this reply is in terms of laws of India as prevalent today.
Property of a Hindu is of two types (a) Ancestral i.e. Co-parcenary and (b) Self Acquired
In both cases, a girl child has equal right as boy.
As regards (a): Section 6 of The Hindu Succession Act, 1956 applies. This has come into force from year 2005
As regards (b): Schedule to The Hindu Succession Act, 1956 applies. This has been in place since long.
You may wish to find the The Hindu Succession Act, 1956 (as amended in year 2005) at following authentic India Government Link: http://indiacode.nic.in/
