please refer section 29 of registration act, 1908.

 As per section 29 of the Indian Registration Act, 1908, Will may be presented for registration either in the office of the concerned Sub-Registrar or in the office of any other Sub-Registrar under the state government at which all the persons executing and claiming under the document desire the same to be registered.

Author, will may be presented at any registrar office. for example: the person who will execute the "will deed" is residing in MP and the properties situated in UP, in such cases also only will be executed at any place.  but in the Will, it should be mentioned clearly where the property is situated and in which State.  under that circumstances, thr registering authority shall forward a memorandum to the concerned registering authority of any place.
