The 4 generation rule under classical Hindu law is essential for understanding coparcernery. It helps determine the rights in property. The original acquirer of property is usually the last holder but if the original acquirer dies then the next in line becomes last holder. It is the last holder from whom the four generations are calculated for determination of coparcernery. This leads to fluctuation of interest as with death and birth the share fluctuates.
