The executor of the will can file for the probate of the will in the state in which the deceased person was living at the time of death. Thus, the competent court to file probate proceedings is the district court of the city/town where the deceased lived at the time of death.

As per me, probate beneficiary can file petition in Bhopal where property is situated.

will was executed in bhopal,but not registered, two witness was there who signed as witness.

If so, probate is not mandatory. So also, it is not necessary that  a Will be registered.

As suggested by Shrish Pawar, for probate you have to file an application before the District Judge where the p[roperty is situated.

The jurisdiction lies to Bhopal where property situates  so file probate petition at Bhopal.
