Legal Provisions of the Law of “The Punjab Letters of Administration and Succession Certificates Ordinance 2021”

The said Law contains only thirteen legal provisions. Now people will have to go to the NADRA office, not the court, to get the property of the deceased movable and immovable.

Where NADRA issues People’s Identity Cards, it will now have to issue Family Succession Certificate (FRC) in accordance with the succession certificate of people’s property i.e. movable and immovable property.

Succession Facility Units will be set up at the NADRA offices to receive public requests for succession. As soon as a citizen dies leaving his land, property or cash in a bank, his heirs will have to apply to the NADRA office instead of going to court.

Advertisement in Newspaper

Upon receipt of the application, the authority will issue advertisements in English and Urdu newspapers. If no one submits an objection within 14 days, after the Bio metric Verification, the Authority will issue a succession certificate.

Bio metric Verification

Bio metric verification can be done from any city of Pakistan. The succession certificate issued by NADRA Authority will be the same as that issued by a court.

If a matter is difficult and complicated (ie if NADRA cannot determine the heirs) then the heirs will be able to approach the court on the order of the authority. Even if the authority does not issue the NADRA certificate within the time limit, the court can be approached.

Documents Required
