Executor of the will

Whether the Beneficiary under the WILL be appointed as the Executor of the WILL?   

Whether close relatives, such as Son/daughter can be the Executor of the WILL:, in case Wife is the Beneficiary?

Dear querist,

Beneficiary under will can be executor of will. You can appoint son / daughter or wife appoint as executor of will.

The provisions of the Indian Succession Act, 1925 would apply to the disposition of assets by a Hindu through a will (testamentary succession). As per the provisions of the Indian Succession Act, 1925, there is no restriction on an executor of a will also being a beneficiary under that Will.
