Hello,

As per me there can be two wills diving the property. There is no bar under law for having two will at the same time. But this may create confusion or dispute in future between the legal heirs.

One can bequeath as many will as he want / wish. Only latest will would be applicable.

One can bequeath all his asset in one will, no need of separate will for each property / beneficiary.

If any property is not covered under the last will, it would be inherited as per personal law of the deceased.

It seems that distinct Wills for distinct items of property is not envisaged in the Indian Succession Act, as the term property in the act refers to the estate of the testator rather than each item of property.

However he can exclude any item of his property from the Will and that will be devolved by the law of succession, as already pointed out.

As already pointed out any number of subsequent Wills he can prepare and the latest one will survive as the legally valid one.
