    Succession Certificate in India

    A succession certificate acts as a pivotal document that grants heirs the authority to inherit movable assets of a deceased person when there’s no will. A legal heir certificate, on the other hand, establishes the rightful heirs of the deceased, aiding in claims related to pensions, insurances, and other benefits.

    The process involves:

    1. Filing a petition in the appropriate court to obtain the succession certificate.
    2. Verification of the petitioner’s claim as the rightful heir.
    3. Publishing a notice to ascertain no opposing claims.
    4. Presentation and verification of all necessary documents.
    5. Issuance of the succession certificate by the court.


    Succession Certificate enables NRI’s to assert their right over movable assets of the deceased in India and ensure a seamless transition of these assets.

    While a succession certificate pertains to the inheritance of movable assets, a legal heir certificate establishes the identity of the rightful heirs of the deceased.

    The timeframe can vary based on individual cases and legal complexities but generally ranges from a few months to a year.

    Not always. With the right legal representation, the physical presence of the NRI can often be bypassed.

    Yes, if other potential heirs believe their rights are being overlooked or undermined, they can contest the issuance of the certificate.
