Making Succession and Inheritance easier: Inputs Sought
Succession, Inheritance and transfer of assets to heirs post death continues to be a difficult process in India. One where, a common citizen has to touch multiple local bodies like Patwari,Tehsildar, Councillor, Government departments, courts, not so co-operating corporates (in case of share transfer), etc and the process is riddened with bribery and delays and in some cases things just get stuck. Previously, we had taken your inputs on issues, root causes and solutions (listed below) and soon would like to escalate this to the Central Government for their awareness and action. We urge you to think a little differently and suggest how even a new model can be designed where inheritance and succession processing can be centralised, significant steps brought online thereby reducing the step requiring in person interface with officials. Succession and Inheritance - Solutions 1.Death certificates should be made available online within 7 days of the death being reported 2.The process of getting NOCs should be streamlined 3.Laws regarding succession and inheritance should be reviewed according to the latest circumstances 4.Laws related to succession and inheritance needs to be framed across religion 5.Proper and simplified rules for obtaining a succession certificate should be defined 6.Opening of every account should require a nominee by law 7.A cap on the lawyer’s fees should be put to handle inheritance cases 8.The transparency in the working of the related departments should be increased 9.A customer service counter/helpline could be started to help people with questions 10. Systems should computerized to reduce human interaction, and hence reduce corruption 11.Marriage registration should be compulsory; without registration banking facilities and other facilities should be withdrawn 12.The area Revenue Authority should confirm the list of Successors and the District Collector & Magistrates should issue the Succession Certificate within 30 days from the date of application 13.Nominal fees, fixed by government should be applicable for basic paper work so that no one gets deprived of their rights due to high fees 14.One window system could be started for transferring the properties. Succession and Inheritance – Root Causes 1.Laws and provisions for succession and inheritance have not been revised in a long time 2.There is corruption in the judicial system at all levels 3.Succession and inheritance cases are tricky ones which need experienced lawyers 4.Nomination is not mandatory in many accounts 5.There is a lack of commitment in the employees in these departments 6.These offices have very limited digitalization 7.Registration of marriage is not mandatory in India 8.There is no clear definition of 'separation' 9.Lack of one stable rule which applies to all religions 10.Banks and mutual funds have different forms & procedures for similar kind of work creating hassles for customers. Succession and Inheritance - Key Issues 1.Death certificate takes a long time to get prepared 2.Getting NOCs from different organizations becomes very tough 3.No concrete laws in this matter 4.The whole procedure of getting a succession certificate takes a very long time in the courts 5.Transfer of shares certificates from the deceased to successors is very difficult, requires court certificate which in turn requires huge deposits. 6.Many accounts do not need a nominee while going through the opening procedures 7.Lawyers charge a huge fee for taking up succession cases (many pay bribes to get work done) 8.Expenses and labour involved in obtaining the succession certificate is another tough ask 9.There is a lack of transparency among cross functional offices 10.The registrar office and staff is very corrupt and getting anything done there takes a lot of time and money 11.There is no customer service department/helpline which could answer the questions which arise in such cases.

This is a serious problem if people are complaining. We must understand it clearly is that land or property is a state subject as per constitution. Central Govt can issue guide lines but the state has to accept the same and implement as in the case of RERA. Please read the state rules and discuss your issue with a lawyer if you feel so. more  
According to law the property and savings of the deceased should go to the children or the wife if it's a male. There's the provision of legal heir certificate which can be acquired locally if the Tasildar is not corrupt. more  
Recently I traveled from Eluru to Dwaraka Tirumala in APSRTC. I hear quran being played throughout the journey. I am not against playing any thing, but do they like playing suprabhatam. On request the bus stopped at Kukullamma few kms from Dwaraka Tirumala. But No bus or auto stopped to go to Tirumala. Any way i able enough to walk down. Darshan took 2 mins walking few hundred meters to temple, but it took 10 mins to break a coconut and an hour to get few ladoo prasadam. Sr citizen trolly plys at its own pace. It is better to walk down to save time. The Free bus used for sight seeing is used for Anna prasadam. He packs the bus beyond travelers convenience. Why? more  
I am loosing faith in democracy, where might is right. My father purchased a land in 1959 and constructed a house. We are paying for Property Tax, Water charges & Electricity. Now the Democracy says you can stay there but can not sell. Why? more
