There is no stamp duty on registration of will. The department will levy a nominal registration fee. Contact the local registrar in your area where you want to register the will. You will require 2 independent witnesses other than the executor or legatee named in the will.

There is no stamp duty required for registraiton of the will and there are two types of registraion of will one is open will and other is sealed will. It is better to go for registration of will as open will you can get it drafted and apply for registration on paying Rs.100/- as registration charges for the same and the attesting 2 witnesses which are mandatory and important.

so go ahead.
