Can I use the legal heir certificate issued by DM to claim the deceased’s FD amount?
My question is about a DF claim. My mother is the legal heiress to the property of her brother who died childless. Now I want to know if bank transfer FD based on court issued legal heir certificate or one obtained from DM (District Magistrate) office can also help claim FD or other savings. For the legal heir, savings applications using a certificate issued by DM or tehsildar is a shortcut from that in court, so please help me to know if the bank will accept a certificate by DM.
