Valid questions.

This refers to 'Heart attack man's family gets savings (GDN, February 9). It was about how Sreekala Devi received proceeds from a bank after the death of her husband.

I wish to put on record the noble deed of people who managed to obtain for Ms Devi the proceeds from the bank.

I am aware of several cases where heirs of deceased are made to go though a lot of tribulation before the funds are released.

Your report made it sound very simple.

Since different banks offer various versions and interpretations, someone would be doing the expat community in Bahrain a great service if they could publish a reliable and detailed procedure for releasing funds.

Further, there was mention of an heirship certificate. I am not aware of such a certificate in India. Probably they meant some document to prove the legal heir. What kind of legal document was required to be produced?

Can anyone help?

This leads to the question that in India under various succession acts (depending upon the religion of the deceased), there could be more than one heir to the estate of the deceased. What happens in such cases?

Lastly, can a power of attorney be given to attend to the formalities? If so, how and where can it be done?
