This present study is focused on the text Vivād -Chintamani has been written by Vachaspati in the medieval period, in which the norms of the property rights of the women mentioned in the DharmaŘāstras and Smritis have been determined. We can see this literature as a transition between the social milieu of two periods. Apart from this, we can study that exactly what was the thinking or the nature of the contemporary society, due to which the intellect person like Vachaspati had to accept the social norms mentioned in the DharmaŘāstras and Smritis again through his literature. Another positive aspect of the study of the Vivād -Chintamani is that, in the case of property rights, get information about what was the situation of women in society, which is important for the study of social science and humanities.
