quesHow can I prove that a Will with no witnesses valid?

My grandfather made WILL in 1965. There were no witnesses at that time to testify the WILL. Can we, in any way, prove that the WILL is valid?

  • ansFor a WILL to be valid, you need 2 attesting witnesses. In the present case, as there are no attesting witnesses the WILL cannot be treated as a valid one. Since it was not executed as per law, it is not a valid document.

    If there is no WILL, the property will be divided among all legal hiers equally.
