will comes into operation after death. It cannot be cancelled. 


If he does not want to enjoy then other legal heirs need to adopt proper procedure for filing letter of administration with Will.

The beneficary may not claim.

There was no such thing as "cancellation of will" after the death of the executant.  The only legal course is to relinquish his share through a registered deed to some others or register a gift or settlement deed within the co-sharers.

The posting suggests deeper issues. Please post complete facts. Who are the legal heirs to the deceased? Is the beneficiary a legal heir or a total stranger?

A will cannot be cancelled once executed, whether registered or not. If a person in whose name the will is drawn doesn't wish to enjoy the property bequeathed to him, he may simply refuse to accept the property or regsiter a relinquishment deed in favour of the person he wishes to give the property.

Best regards,
