The succession cases, where the properties are situated in India, where the deceased did not domicile to any foreign country, succession procedures are governed by Hindu law, Hindu Minority and guardianship Act, Indian succession Act, Special marriage Act, Muslim Personal Law etc. In cases where the deceased has died intestate and has domiciled to some other jurisdiction other than India, then the laws of the country to which he/she domiciled to will be applicable in the succession proceedings. Indian courts recognize the probate proceedings conducted in foreign courts but it is necessary to get a succession certificate from the approximate court with regard to a movable or immovable property situated in India at the time of death to legally transfer the immovable properties and movable properties to the names of the legal heirs.

The Succession certificate is issued under S.123 of the Indian succession Act by the courts having relevant Jurisdiction. The process takes about 1 year time if all the required documents are produced along with the application. If any one of the legal heirs contests the case, then it might take more time.

The will, if attested by two witnesses and no legal heir is objecting to the will then will it is sufficient to transfer the properties into the names of the legal heirs. But in case if the will is objected by anyone of the legal heir or even third party then it requires to be probated or the parties should take a succession certificate from an appropriate court.
