My mother, invested quite a substantial amount of money (which she inherited upon sudden death of my father) in Mutual Fund. Due to internal family friction she nominated my elder sister and my cousin sisters as Nominee in all such mutual funds instead of me. My query is that upon her demise do I have legal right to claim the investments being the legal heir. In case if the answer is YES then how shall I proceed with my claim. My father didn't made any WILL. We are a hindu by religion.
Also my mother maintained 02 bank accounts wherein my elder sister is a joint holder & in the other she is a nominee. Under such circumstances does I have legal claim to her money in bank as well as FD as a legal heir.
Shall appreciate a help.
