You need to file a petition under section 372 of the Indian Succession Act for grant of succession certificate before the concerned court. Death certificate will be required, apart from the additional requirements. If the petition is not contested then the court usually issues a succession certificate in five to seven months. Cost and fees varies

Time (if no objection from all legal heirs)-6–8months approx in Delhi
Otherwise it depends upon state to state. Court fees is different for every state.
