In the absence of a Will, succession laws matter—not the nominations
In the absence of a Will, a person's assets, whether movable or immovable, would devolve on his/her heirs in accordance with the personal law applicable
Our cousin passed away without a Will. He was unmarried, with no siblings. He had nominees for a demat account. We the nominees got the shares transferred to our demat account. Now one of his relatives, heir, is claiming that if she does not get some shares she will file a case. She is the daughter of my deceased cousin’s brother. Is her claim valid?
