My brother expired on 16.1.2010 whom is unmarried.  My mother is alive , whether she has to apply for legal heir with the tehsil office or is there any option available for getting thro civil court,  The procedure thro taluk office, revenue inspector and vao is tiresome and time consuming.  Pls adv can I apply with Taluk office and later on get NOC fm them and apply in civil court,

For what purpose the legal heir certificate is required is not mentioned.  Whether your brother was a Government employee who nominated ur mother in the service register..... DVM Rao, Advocate, Hyderabad
