father made a will on plain paper which is not registered. now he is no more. will is signed by 2 witness . I want to know whether doctor attestation also required on tat will?? bcoz I want to probate it. can a will be prabated without doctors sign on it??? can the flat be transfered to the nominate names of the will??

Get the available witness deposed in the court, deposition of doctor is not required, even otherwise doctor has no locus standi in a probatory case, if he is not a witness to execution of will..

Medical certificate on will is required when executant of will is seriously ill else not required. Doctor's certificate and evidence is not required in probate proceedings.Deposition of one witness of will is required to prove will in probate proceedings.

Agreed with Mr Bhartesh Goyal based on available facts.
