Will is only valid if registered
While registering a Will can add an extra layer of authenticity, it’s not mandatory for a Will to be considered legally valid.
A well-drafted and properly executed Will holds legal weight even without registration.
Indian law recognizes both registered and unregistered Will as legally valid if they meet certain criteria. A Will must be in writing, signed by the testator (the person making the Will), and witnessed by two or more witnesses.
What matters most is that the Will complies with the legal requirements of the State and Central Government of India. Learn more about how to write a Will that cannot be easily challenged in India here.
