definitely no. adoption deed is required to prove in the court that Y adopted the x if he is unable to subit the adoption deed . x can not be eligible as successor of y. In the Hindu law, a hindu can not adopt any child without the consent of his wife and the child whom is being taken as adoption should be not more than 16 year and age gape between child and adopted parents should not be less than 15 years . in hindu law some adoption ritual is also be taken place in the presence of all the relative and friends alongwith adoption deed .
