intestate means died without leaving a will behind.

if any Hindu dies without creating any will, thn his property will be devolved upon his heirs as per the Shedule of hindu seccession act.

exmp. - if my father dies intestate and i m the only son, and there is no one in my family like my mother,sister thn i will become the sole owner and there is no need to obtain any latter of adminstration from court.
