Will when brought for probation in Civil court, can be challenged and the witnesses proved as fake and false. Challenge the Will and get it proved as fake.

Dear querist Krishna, Probate is a legal process to prove in the court that Will is valid. If that Will is already probated in the past and during that process no objection as you have stated here was raised, so why you and your uncle are worried now. Just remain silent.

"Recently my uncles have arranged the witness to sign , as per their convince,it is a fraudulent thing,

will it be proved in the court that it is a fradulent signature?

A will without signatures of witness is not valid.  If any signatures are obtained after execution of a will, this may be established through forensic evidence and the experts can give an opinion as to the age of the ink that was used, etc.  Though it may be difficult, there is a possibility to prove that will is not valid. Signatures are not fraudulent but fraud has been played for making invalid document as valid document.

Will the witnesses and my uncles be punished

Members can not state on future thing. It all depends on the establishment of fraud and making a criminal complaint and investigation report of police or establishment of fraud. The bad intentions if any by such persons to deprive others any benefit etc. play a part.

Thanks everyone, The will is being full of skraches and even a page has been skrached. It was written in a note book.

Forensic technology has not reached to such level where age of ink used in the fountain pen, dot pen, old style typewriter ribbon (still are in use in U.P.) etc could be opined. If the querist himself has admitted the alleged crime in his query then the answer in the opinion is such. If signature is made with the fraudulent intent in the Will, then prima facie it is a crime. The question is that, why some witness would sign on the Will, after it's maker had died? Definitely not with the good intent.
