One Stop Solution Provider in Estate and Succession Planning
A last will and testament is an important part of any estate plan and without one, yours might be incomplete. Writing a will allows you to decide what happens to your assets when you pass away, rather than having them distributed according to state inheritance laws.
Any innovative or disruptive idea is not easy to implement. The acceptance does take a considerable amount of time within the society. Similar was the case when Raj Kumar Lakhotia and Namita Lakhotia conceptualized the idea of their venture ‘DiLSEWiLL.’ Their aim was to provide end to end solutions for all Succession and Estate Planning Services.
An online will making web portal under its parent company Chessygroup, Dilsewill’s founders are CAs practicing in the fields of Taxation, Assurance Services, Corporate Laws, Transaction advisory services and the like for more than a decade and a half.
DiLSEWiLL provides an array of services with the prime focus on online will making services. Its bouquet of services includes an online will, offline will, will registration, its probate, obtaining a succession certificate and all allied services. They have simplified the process of making WILL and one can have the WILL done by following 4 simple steps – register, pay, provide details and your WILL is ready.“Our vision has always been to become the most trusted and preferred online service provider in the field of Estate and Succession Planning,” explains Lakhotia.
The utility provided by DiLSEWiLL is very user-friendly. Will making services being provided online is the prime differentiator from their competitors. The fact that now people need not visit a lawyer, compromise their productive hours, shell out a good amount to get their will made is the edge we have over the traditional way of making a will. With the evolving times, the need is to ease out the pain of travel and reduce the cost without compromising on the quality. DiLSEWiLL has done all of the above.
“Though there are not many start-ups in this field, legal start-ups are now taking shape. The need for providing an online platform for legal services is being recognized. The need for the change is catching up,” believes Lakhotia.
Evolution of perspectives
The lack of acceptance and awareness were the two major hindrances in their growth journeys. People are still unaware of the importance of making a will. Acceptance of an online legal document providing platform is also taking time in India. Though, the team has come a long way from where they had started, but, India has a huge population that needs to be educated for making wills. “We would like to urge the newspapers and other media platforms to take this social issue seriously and spread awareness for the same,” says Team DiLSEWiLL.The society comprises of smaller units known as families. The society can be a better place to live in only if the members of each family are in a harmonious relationship with each other and have economic security for their future. Partially this harmony can be achieved by making a will as it keeps at bay disputes for wealth amongst themselves after the demise of a family member. Similarly, economic security for the future of the surviving members can be ensured by proper distribution of wealth through the will.
Also, “Our focus and approach ensure unbreakable faith of our clients. Awareness is created through various mediums accessible to the public. Our focus is to provide customized will even though DiLSEWiLL. is an online platform. This is the reason we go the extra mile by providing necessary consultation and assistance. Team DiLSEWiLL. works with a complete customer-centric approach,” claim the makers.
R&D has helped in giving the customers a hassle free and customer friendly experience. “With the ever-evolving technology we need to upgrade ourselves to keep in pace,” said the Lakotas. The team claims to come back to work more excited and enthusiastic than they used to initially. The evolution and dynamism of things around tend to keep their spirits always high. Their constant in house research and regular feedback systems from clients helps them to be updated about the market needs and accordingly they keep making changes in their product base.
Milestones and Road Ahead
Keeping employees content is very important. Success doesn’t come handy and without the combined efforts of many, it’s always teamwork. Valuing their inputs and ideas, giving opportunities, creating a safe and nurturing environment, taking care of healthy interpersonal relationships amongst them are some of the ways in which the firm tends to ensure their employee satisfaction and contentment.
The present government policies are very conducive to startups. Today start-ups have a lot of support from government bodies like DIPP(Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion), MEIT(Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology). Many organizations like NASSCOM have come a long way in supporting start-ups like us.
According to Lakhotia, “I would like to mention here that we are recognized by the DIPP and are also part of the NASSCOM 10000 startup 2019. Client satisfaction and customer feedback are of great importance to us. They help us learn and improvise. Positive feedbacks keep us motivated.
Bing an entrepreneur himself, Lakhotia also has some words of wisdom for fellow entrepreneurs as well. “I would like to say that we are all earning and living a holistic life in this society. It is our moral responsibility that we should have at least one project which gives a solution to a major social problem as a gratitude gesture towards society. Also, I would like to appeal to everyone that “death is certain, but the time is uncertain”…do not procrastinate. Make your will.”
Also, they aim at creating awareness in the masses about the importance of will make, even for young adults, simplifying the process of will making and making it available to one and all irrespective of geographical locations, at affordable prices. Every person having savings and dependants are advised to make wills. Its an appeal to the young generation to understand the importance of making will for the safety and security of their family.
