Procedure to get succession certificate

We have applied for a succession certificate in 2013 to claim the shares of Bata company which was in the sole name of my deceased father. Petition number 50 of 2013. We have paid Rs.41000 to the Assistant director to the Administrator general Mumbai Maharashtra state. The matter has also been published in the local newspaper on 18 Jan 2016. Our advocate isn't cooperating as it's almost 5 years now and there's little progress in our case. PL advice us. Thanks

The matter for Succession Certificate or Heirship Certificate takes max to max 1 year, not more then that. If the paper publication is done you are left over with on affidavit formalities to be filed before the Hon'ble Court. Regards.
