Obtaining Succession certificate

Petition Filing

The process begins with the filing of a petition in the court of competent jurisdiction. The jurisdiction is typically determined based on where the deceased resided at the time of death or where the assets are located. The legal heirs of the deceased must file the petition and should include details such as the name of the deceased, date of death, residence, details about the heir(s), relationship with the deceased and details of the debts and securities for which the succession certificate is sought.


The petition should be accompanied by a death certificate of the deceased, proof of relationship to the deceased (such as a birth certificate or marriage certificate) and any other documents that may substantiate the claim.

Publication of Notice

Once the petition is filed, the court typically issues a notice to the public and to specific individuals, if any, who may have an interest in the estate of the deceased. This is to ensure that anyone with a competing claim has the opportunity to present their case.


After the notice period, the court conducts a hearing to examine the validity of the claims. During this phase, the court may require the petitioner to furnish additional evidence or documents.

Granting of Certificate

If the court is satisfied with the legitimacy of the claims, it issues the succession certificate to the petitioner. This certificate grants the holder the right to distribute the debts and securities of the deceased as per the law.

Validity and Usage

The succession certificate is valid throughout India. Once obtained, it allows the holder to negotiate or transfer debts and securities, and to collect debts on behalf of the estate of the deceased.
