What is a succession certificate?

A succession certificate is a certificate that is granted by the appropriate court in India to the legal heirs of a person who is dying intestate (i.e. without a will), leaving behind debts and securities. This piece of document entitles the holder of it to transfer such securities in the holder’s name, and also to make payments for the debts. These can be done by the holder of the certificate without having to ascertain the legal heir who is entitled to it.

A succession certificate is valid throughout India. It enables to provide indemnity to all the person that owe such debts. This is the reason why many organisations and persons request for succession certificates before settling debts or securities of the deceased in favor of the person claiming such debts or securities.
