A succession certificate is a legal document issued by a court or competent authority that gives the rightful heirs of a deceased person the power to inherit and manage their assets, properties, and debts when there is no will or uncertainty about its validity. It’s basically a way of formally recognizing the legal heirs and helping them distribute the deceased person’s estate by allowing them to claim and handle the assets mentioned in the certificate.

4. Public Notification:
NADRA believes in transparency, so they publish a notice in newspapers, inviting objections from the public regarding the specific application. This gives a chance for anyone who might have a concern to voice it within a certain period of time.

5. Final Steps – Printing and Issuance:
If there are no objections raised during the 14-day period, NADRA goes ahead and prints and issues the succession certificate or letter of administration. And that’s it! The process is complete.

So, there you have it. With NADRA’s online system, getting a succession certificate in Pakistan has become easier and more convenient. Just follow the steps, provide the necessary documents, and you’ll be well on your way to managing and inheriting the assets of your loved ones.
