My father's broker with whom he had a DEMAT account is not honouring succession certificate issues by court in favour of my mother after his death. Broker keeps saying that succession certificate submitted by mother does not have the market value but the face value of securities. The succession certificate mentions DP ID , Client ID and aggregate face value of all stocks and bonds seperately. My lawyer, who got the succession certificate is very confident of the fact that we are on right . He tells us that transmission is always done using face value while transfer needs to be done on market value. We sent the broker certified documents procured by the court which shows statement from broker itself that contains market value aswell as the corresponding face value calculation. We are very confused in what to do. Lawyer says we should file a contempt of court petition. We have received advice about getting the certificate modified. Many legal experts we personally spoke to tell us broker should really not care and do the transmission. We are also told that we can't give a format to court for the certificate. Would really appreciate any help or advice on this.
