Laws do not consider financial circumstances of heirs if individual dies without will: Book


NEW DELHI: Although aware of its importance not many in India make a will where as doing so is not at all difficult, says a new book. 

Lawyer VK Verma in his book, " Making a will made easy" published by Macmillan Publishers cautions that laws do not consider the emotional or financial circumstances of an individual's heirs in case the individual dies without a will.

"When an individual dies intestate (without a will), the legal system which controls the distribution of anindividual's property, does not take into account the needs of individuals in their particular circumstances" Verma says.

He adds," The hard fact is Indians refrain to accept that few things pertaining to their death need to be planned in advance."

"Making a will made easy" is a self help book written in layman's language to assure that people who require any assistance in this direction do not require to rush to the chambers and respective offices of legal experts for small clarifications and eradication of confusions.

"Though execution of Will has no rigid requirements yet the statistics show that three out of four people die without a will because they can't bring themselves to think about their death," says Verma.

During his practice as a lawyer for more than four decades the author says he noted the deficiency relating to interpretation of succession laws in India.

"The purpose of converting the original guide into this compact book is to help the common man gain clarity in dealing with the estate in his hands and discharging his social and legal obligations effectively." he says.

Explaining the importance of will the author says, "Will is a legal document which directs transfer of property of an individual to his future generations affects human relationships and not just money. Therefore, it is of great significance in Law as well as our social set up."
