If in civil case proceedings if any of the respondents do not appear in the court, their defense is struck off and they are proceeded ex-parte.
The court proceed to decide the petition between the petitioner and defending respondents only.

Succession opens on date of death; by inheritance or by testamentary succession (by valid WILL).
IT is matter of procedure to include all legal heirs, beneficiary (if other than legal heirs) before WILL is duly acted upon without any cloud on IT and/or probate is granted.

During the 9 months was WILL submitted to O/o Authority under whose jurisdiction property falls!
The authority under whose jurisdiction property falls has a set procedure for such matters if the WILL has surfaced; Testate Succession…….and the prescribed forms, procedure, process is available in O/o Authority and even on website. Certified copies of the WILL, death certificate, legal heir certificate/affidavit (per local procedure/precedence) are basic requirements. The authority may ask for NOC from legal heirs (other than beneficiary) and/or to release newspaper advt and/or may write to legal heirs to submit their objections if any within set time.

If Daughters signed NOC or even did not sign then IT is a matter of record.
