Let the present ages of Aunt and Jagriti be x and y respectively.

According to the first condition, we get
y + 5 = 2/3(x + 5)
→ 3y + 15 = 2x + 10
→ 2x - 3y  = 5  .... (1)

According to the second condition, we get
y - 3 = 1/2(x)
x - 2y = -6  .... (2)

Solving (1) and (2) simultaneously, we get
x = 28 and y = 17

Therefore the present ages of Aunt and Jagriti be 28 years and 17 years respectively.
