My father (passed away 4 years back) have few company shares. Now i want to change it to my Mother's name. When I asked for the procedures, the respective authority demanded a succession certificate as there is no Will left by my father. Now, I already have got a Legal Heir certificate issued by Thahasildar, after the report from Village officer and published in govt. gazatte for one month. This is issued entirely in regional language, Malayalam. The authority for transfering the share is saying like Legal Heir certificate is not Succession certificate and it should be obtained seperately.?
My questions here are:
1) is Legel heir certificate and Succession certificate are both the same?
2) If No, how to get a succecssion certificate.
3) If Yes, Can I use the Legal heir certificate that is issued in regional language for the purpose of transfering the shares(As the authorities are outside the state, how can they understand the contents of the certificate ? ).
Thanks in advance
