Sir I think Your client is confussed or misguided. Succession certificate is issued only for fixed sum like gratuity, or other deposits in bank etc. Pension is not a fixed sum  it is to be paid regularly in future. I think department would have asked for declaration, that your client is only the legal heir of his father and entitled to claim  family pension.

AS PER INDIAN SUCCESION ACT. YOU CAN FILE THIS MATTER. OR YOU MAY take 1 formal party for affidavite claim that person says i give him no objection for heirs

does the succession certificate is required for each state / account / property. my father expired without having made a will. we are two brothers and one sister. he has accounts and FDs in 4-5 banks at three different places. also his property is located at a different place. will one certificate be valid pan india. what would be the stamp duty. what is the time frame for obtaining the succession cerificate. will the three siblings require separate certificate or a common certificate.

dear suneel ji i agree with arvind ,the department want to declare that this one is the legal hiers of the person who is working under the department .

there is no need to want sucession .after that if the wife is alive the pention of that member should be transfered to her .

As far as succession certificate is concerned it will be issued only to the properties/assets which are movable and not otherwise.
