Legal heir certificate issued by Tahasildar is as good as succession certificate unless specifically required.

In the absence of nomination or will, the heirs to a piece of property or financial assets are required to prove their claims to them. In such cases, depending on the asset, an heir might be asked to produce either the succession certificate or the letter of administration.

For movable property like the provident fund, bank deposits, shares, loans, or other securities, the succession certificate is required.Now present situation is Courts are not functioning physically because of COVID-19. wait and see.

If the case is filed for obtaining Succession Certificate in the Civil Court, then Proclamation  in this regard is ordered by Court to publish in any daily news Paper. At least this order has been passed by Court or not. In some states full fledged court functioning  is commenced.  You can view your case in E-courts app for all details such as hearing dates, orders passed.
