For obtaining certified copies of WILL you have to enclose the death certificate of the executant and that the applicant have to submit photo identity card. Power Deeds and Wills are entered in BOOK IV which cannot be obtained easily as sale deeds, settlement deeds, trust deed etc. in each STate they have some procedure so check it out.
I Managed to find the will. But, as our friend m.piravi perumal said,the Registrar asking to produce the death certificate of the executant. The problem here is the concerned municipality do not have the old records(then panchayat). What is the alternative procedure,to prove the person is dead.
Can i use, a document(registered) where the executant of the will is addressed as late(before his name)? or any other alternative procedure to prove his death?
I will be thankful/appreciate, an early reply please...
