I am working in a musical copyright functionality. My query is for obtaining Succession Certificate in absence of Death Certificate. Here to brief, the legal heir does not bear death certificate of her two brothers who were the members of Copyright Society. Now, as a legal heir she wants royalty but for obtaining a said certificate one needs to have a Death Certificate.Pl suggest how she will getthe royalty of her decesed ones. How to go about it ??
How she may prove a person's death ? I mean will a mere declaration / affidavit will do or she really should apply to the competent authority to get the Death Cert first ?? can she not get it in absence of DS ?
TRY TO FIND WHERE THEY DIE AT HOSPITAL OR ELSE WHERE. INFORMATION ABOUT DEATH CAN BE SOUHGT FROM HOSPITAL RECORD. IF THEY WERE CEREAMATED REGISTER IS MAINTAINED OF PERSONS WHO WERE CREAMATED AT PARTICULAR FUNURAL GROUND.
OTHER WISE FOLLOW ADV ARTI KETAN GAURAV'S ADVICE MAGISTRATE OR TEHSILDAR WILL CALL INQUAIRY REPORT FROM THE CONCERNED AUTHORITY.
For the purposes of obtaing succession certificate, proving of death of the person in question is must. ALTERNATIVELY, for that, you may also use the provisions of Right to Information Act from the Local Municipality/ Panchayat for informations about registration of death and then apply for the Death Certificate.
