The name is death certificate, property documents, legal heir certificate should be as per KYC docs or ‘officially valid documents’ for identity …e.g; Aadhar Card, Voter card etc

While applying for Legal heir certificate the applicant must have attached copy of such docs….

If name if such docs is ‘Sagaya Mary’ then IT cannot be S.Mary in legal heir certificate…

Check in your copies of forms submitted by you.

If IT is an error by O/o Tehsildar or authority that issued legal heir certificate, approach for correction…



For property as well ‘officially valid documents’ for identity …must have been submitted…

If IT is an error by O/o SRO approach for correction…

The affidavit of person being one and same may be accepted…

Approach your own very able senior LOCAL counsel of unshakable repute and integrity and specializing in such/civil matters….and worth his/her salt




All d family members who are legal heirs can give notarised affadavit that S.Mary and Sagaya Mary is one and same and wife of so and so and present before d S R O.Pl.note that the notarised affadavit is legally valid document.
