a) Natural Inheritance
b) Inheritance by Will
a) Natural Inheritance:-So far the law of inheritance is concerned, the natural inheritance is the one which is inherited by the legal heirs of a deceased according to their relationship as provided under the law, whereas inheritance by Will is such that when the inheritance of the property is to be made as per the Will/last wish of the deceased owner. In case a person does not leave the will, then the succession is to be followed as a natural inheritance, in which so far as the Hindus are concerned, there are different classes of heirs so enumerated under the Hindu Succession Act and it is the last one heirs who are first of all entitled to equally share the property of the deceased, but in case there is no class-I heir, then it is the class-II heir and so on. The succession of such share shall be equal in share within a particular class.
b) Inheritance by Will:-The inheritance by Will is where the deceased has left a Will, which may be registered or unregistered, the only requirement of the Will, the execution of the Will that it must have been attested by two witnesses. The last Will/wish of the deceased is to be honored, therefore, the low provides that irrespective of the fact whether there is any natural heir and much close than the person in whose favour such Will is there, even then the inheritance if by way of Will is there, it shall be in favour of such beneficiary of the Will.
