Succession Certificate

Succession Certificate - Trial court should not take such harsh view in uncontested cases as it has taken by the impugned judgment in dismissing a petition seeking succession certificate especially where other legal heirs have given their no objections to grant of the succession certificate - If the trial court found that for some reason the relevant documents were not filed on behalf of the appellant/petitioner showing her relationship with the deceased or how the deceased was the proprietor  - In the interest of justice before dismissing the petition seeking succession certificate, the trial court could have pointed out this fact to the appellant/petitioner and have given an opportunity to the appellant/petitioner to remedy the defects - This was however not done by the trial Court.
