Not beneficial, Its actually compulsory, If you really want to shift your domain and page authorities and rankings form the old domain/pages to the new domain/pages, you have to redirect each page to the new one separately. The Redirection type should be permanent 301 redirect, if its temporary, you should use 302 redirect. All this can be done with .htaccess file.

Default Yes, It is necessary

Hi Krishna,
If you have built backlinks on your old domain and would like to gain its benefit to your new domain then you have to give 301 redirection. Google will pass the link value to your new domain when it sees 301 on your old domain.

If you had applied fishy practice for building links and you have doubt about their positive impact on your website's ranking then I advise not to implement 301 redirection on your old domain. Build the fresh quality links with unique and fruitful content in order to achieve ranking.

If you are doing 301 redirect, which is permanent redirect, than yes it will help you pass ranking to the new website. As 301 redirect passes link juice to the new URL.

But, if you are doing 302 redirect, which is a temporary redirect than no link juice will be passed to the new link. Resulting no increase in the ranking of the new website.
