The Tamil Nadu government has offered to provide detailed guidelines and procedures for issuing certificates of legal heir to applicants in the state.

In line with the Revenue Department’s proposal, the Independent Deputy Tahsildar/Tahsildar should not impose restrictive conditions, such as the certificate being only valid for a certain period or invalid in civil court, when issuing the certificates.

A communication sent to the Commissariat of the Tax Administration indicated that the guidelines were to be published shortly. A senior official also confirmed that the finalized guidelines will be released soon.

“In the event that no adult legal heir survives, a minor legal heir may apply for a certificate of legal heir through his guardian or through the brother(s) or sister(s) of the deceased person,” reads one of the proposed guidelines. .
