Hi @Chakravarthy R 

Jira won't stop you from doing that. You will have to rely on a workflow validator or some scripts (behaviours). You would need an additional add-on to do that.

In case you have ScriptRunner installed it is not very difficult to achieve. Take a look here.

You can do both ways - update parent due date as well (roll up dates using listeners). It really depends what you want to achieve. When dealing with these situations where you want to track original planned date and actual date (based on sub-tasks) people create multiple dates. So you also can compare later on for reporting purpose.
