What is difference between succession and survivorship as per Hindu Succession Act?

Prior to enactment of Hindu Succession Act 1956,on the death of one coparcener of joint family,other coparceners of joint family were getting property of joint family by survivorship and was not inherited by his legal heirs. This rule was partly abrogated by Hindu Succession Act 1956 and totally abrogated by Hindu Succession Amendment Act 2005.Now joint family property is inherited by legal heirs of deceased and not by other coparceners of joint family. Joint family property passes to legal heirs of deceased by succession or inheritance.
