Your sister in law would require succession certificate to withdraw the amount. For this she needs to file a succession case under district judge with a fixed court fees, but the other charges is variable from court to court. The payment has to be done through court fees in part and the rest head has to be paid in court challan and cash, which could be paid through your advocate. But you need to appear for your case in court, through your advocate in order to obtain the certificate. Generally your advocate will charge you in percentage, which includes his fees and all the legitimate charges of the court including the court fees.
