dear Mr. Shah,
to have a will, no format is required under any statute. only the intention of the testator, duly sgned, is required with two attesting witnesses.

There is no format for will. A Will should contain -

Name, S/o or D/o or W/o ....,aged ...., residing at ....

You must mention the movable and immovable properties, and the account numbers of the bank accounts, FDs, etc. and to whom it is to be bequeathed, and what share for each of them. Give the full description of immovable properties.

Also include a clause, wherein in case the person acquires any type of properties in future, as also bank accounts, FDs, etc. to whom it will be given.

In the end, title the para as CODICIL and endorse that what you have written in the Will is true and not made under any force, threat or coercion.

Sign by two witnesses and the person should sign as TESTATOR.

Registration of will is not compulsory, but it is better if it is registered, since it is more valid in the eyes of law.

Will by a husband in favour of his wife

There is no format for the will, but wittnesses are must. It is better if one of the wittnesses is doctor. Who can say the health condition of the testator if the will is challenged. And it is to be written in the will that This is my last will and no will is executed in favour of any body prior to this will.

yes husband can will in favour of his wife.

make sure the contents of the will i.e. the property and their uses after death etc. are clear and not ambiguous in nature.

if possible though not necessary let it be a registered one.
