Let the daughter approach the bank manager, definitely she will get relief. The banker will provided necessary suggestions to proceed for the claim. She may have to provide an affidavite establishing her heirship of the said accounts. She may also get necessary help from women's social organisation as she is not financially strong to proceed on her own.

i dont think the bank will release money only on the basis of affidavit, she will have to file a suit for a declaration to the extent her mother and brother are missing for the last more than 15 years so to be presumed dead.
and also she will have to procure succession certificate from the court to prove here genuine claim.

Thank you so much for the guidance. However, please let me know if possible, as to whether the Human Rights protecting Bodies can certify and whether their certification can be valued by the Bank authority in lieu of the FIR, to substantiate the Claim?
