Legal heirs for the transfer of shares of the deceased

EXECUTIVE ENGINEER

My brother in law expired, 53 years in June, 2011.

He is left with his wife, one son (became adult in July, 2011 i.e. after death), one daughter (21 years).

He has 3 elder brothers. Father, 96 years is alive.

He and his wife had seperate Demat accounts in a bank (Same bank).

The present value in each account is more than 8 lacs.

Pl. intimate who is the legal heir.

Is it only his wife

or wife, son and father.

Or the brothers have any right.

Pl. intimate the formalities.

The wife, son and daughter are the legal heirs of the deceased.  Brothers are not come under the purview of legal heirs in the presence of First Class Heirs under tghe Hindu Succession Act.

Mr. Sudalaimuthu has stated that father is also the legal heir of the deceased.  To the best of my knowledge,  he is wrong.  He will not come under the category of First class heir.  If I am wrong, I request Mr. Sudalaimuthu to enlighten me how the father is the legal heir of the deceased husband while his wife and children and mother are alive.

In that case, it is very clear that the brothers and the father of the deceased are not the legal heirs.

Thanks.

Pl. help us out in getting the heir/succession certificate.

Where nomination has not been made:
 
On death of the sole holder of the Demat Account, if a nomination has not been made by the deceased holder, the legal heirs or the legal representatives of the deceased can submit the Transmission Form to request transfer of all securities from the Demat Account of the deceased holder to their Demat Account. Legal heirs or the legal representatives can be one or many as determined by the court. Securities can be transferred to an existing Demat Account. Otherwise, they need to open a new Account. Go to Open Demat Account.
 
Legal heirs or the legal representatives are required to submit the following documents

a) A completed Transmission Form

b) A copy of the Death Certificate of the deceased holder duly notarized

c) A copy of the probate or letter of administration duly notarised, where the deceased has left a Will.

d) A copy of Succession Certificate duly notarised or an order of a court of competent jurisdiction, where the deceased has not left Will.
e) Closure request & DIS of the deceased’s account for transfer of shares
