By a Deed of Partition which may be amicably settled amongst legal heirs,failing which may be decided by an order of Court after filing a partition suit.There is no issuing authority of Legal Heirs Certificate in West Bengal,you can declare the legal heirs of the deceased by affirm an Affidavit before the Judicial Magistrate,but it is not require for any Partition Deed or every purpose.
