Registration of a Will is voluntary.

No,will requires no registration and stamp duty. For a valid will signature of testator and two witnesses are essential.

Registration of will is not mandatory in India. However, it is advisable to register for future prospects which follows few amounts in process.

Registration of will is not mandatory, as under the Indian Succession Act, 1925, it’s considered to be a personal choice of the testator. However, it’s advisable to register it, if its contents are to be abided by after the person’s death. In other words, the will’s validity or genuineness will be suspect and difficult to prove if it’s not registered.

Registration of a WILL does not prove its absolute genuineness. It is still open to challenge.

Will Registration is NOT MANDATORY. But it is helpful if Will is registered if there are objections to Will in future.
