You have not posted the material facts. Whose Will? Who are the beneficiaries?  Why 4 witnesses?

It is not always the case that a Will needs to be probated.

Father, while alive, executed will in 1986 [ witnessed by 4 persons] but passed away in 2011. Mother expired in 2021 due to covid. Due to my ongoing chemo treatment, I could not is now at evidence stage. Today one suggested to explore gift deed as my sister will give her consent. Pl guide. It is Howrah court
