No. Petition for Succession Certificate is filed only to claim movable assets like funds lying in Savings Accounts, FDRs, Pension money etc.

We require original bank related documents to show in the Court. If the original documents are not in possession of the claimant, the original record can be summoned in Court from concerned Banks. Alongwith this, Original death certificate of the person whose assets are being claimed is required to be attached with the petition. If the assets are being claimed on the basis of Will, original Will is required.

The Banks and financial institutions do not permit the legal heirs to operate the bank accounts of a deceased person without any proper court order to circumvent any discrepancy. Hence, the Petition for Succession Certificate is filed to obtain order in this respect.
