Submit the letter to the branch manager and state the fact with all proof of records

Respected Member,

Your  father's account can be changed into signature one definitely by applying to the Home Branch of the respective bank.

For the procedure, first of all, every bank have a slightly different procedure for this but there are some basic things that you will definitely need. They are:-

1. Firstly you need to submit the complete details of the account and account holder.

2. A letter need to be written to the branch head explaining the whole situation however some banks also have forms for the same purpose so you just have to fill that.

3. Thirdly, the account holder that is your father in the present case has to provide a Fresh KYC along with his latest photograph to the bank.

There are also two things that you should keep a note of;

First is that this process can only take place at Home Branch.

Second is that, the account holder has to be personally present for this purpose.

I hope I was able to help you. However, this answer is purely from internet research so please consult a professional as well.
