Succession certificates OR probation
Whether Money from Bank can be withdrawn by beneficiaries without succession certificate/ or probation. Which will be better? Why? My father made a will.
Also can you clarify regarding the operation of bank locker. Is it necessary to give an official letter to the bank manager?.

Since your father made a will, you will have to get the will probated in a court. Succession certificate applies only where there is no will. Without probate, bank will not allow you to withdraw or operate the locker.
