The refugee rehabilitation department alloted a land to a person and latter handed over the deed to that person. It was also informed that the person can sell the land at his discretion. If that person wants to make a will depriving one of his sons will it be valid in the eye of law? The depriving son's view is that the land was given by the Govt. to a person for maintaining his family. So one can not deprive a member of that family. Is it tenable? Pradyot Biswas

If the refugee had the power to alienate under the allotment, certainly he can make a Will of his choice. The contention of the depriving son though looks as a defence would not certailnly stand in the court of law.
