In India there are certain areas where probate is mandatory and other areas where it is not. Probate becomes necessary when there is a dispute, when one is not sure of the validity of the Will or when one wishes to dispose of the property and the prospective buyer who is offering a good price insists on a probate.
In areas where probate is not necessary, is it possible to get a probate if one wants? Will there be stamp duty in such a place? Will mutation be sufficient? Is mutation possible without a probate?
This is a question and not an answer.
