My mother had bought shares in various companies from the secondary market with my money. The shares were registered in her name, with my name not mentioned as the nominee. These are physical shares and not in demat form.
Now that she has passed away without a will, my brother and I are the sole legal heirs left. My brother has no objection to relinquishing any claim to these shares.
I read about this kind of situation a little bit and it seems a succession certificate might be required, but the process of obtaining this from the courts seems quite lengthy. My question is, preferably with least trouble and cost as well as maximum speed, how can I get all those shares transferred to my name in demat form? I would also like to include both my sons as nominees at the same time. Please advise.
