You can visit the concerned Tehsildar office in person and get clarified about the procedures in this regard and proceed accordingly. 

Letters of administration or court decree will take huge time and money.

4.       Final approval: If the village administrator and revenue officer do not find any issue, they will send your legal heir certificate application to Tehsildar for a final report. Tehsildar can issue or reject the application.
