The passing of legacy of a deceased upon his/ her heirs is governed by various laws in India such as Hindu Succession Act, Indian Succession Act, etc. If a person dies without leaving behind any testamentary WILL, the passing of legacy of deceased is termed as Intestate Succession. In such a case, if the deceased left behind any type of movable assets which maybe funds in bank accounts or investments in the form of equites, bonds, mutual funds, or any such financial investment in India, the same can be accessed by the legal heirs after obtaining the Succession Certificate from the relevant Court in India. Succession Certificate is a document issued by the court under its seal, mandatory for claiming movable assets of the deceased by the successors of the deceased. It establishes the legitimacy of the legal heirs and provides them the right and authority to access the movable assets of the deceased.
