a) What is meant by Probate of a Will?
Probate is nothing but a decree passed by a competent court declaring the legality/correctness and genuineness of the Will of the deceased. A probate is issued to the executor, or the person who is authorized to implement or execute the will and thereby adds a legal character to the will.

b) What are the advantages of a Probated Will?
Probate of a Will when granted, establishes the genuineness of Will from the death of the testator and renders valid all intermediate acts of the Executor as such. 

c) What are the documents required for Probate?
While submitting a probate application, you need to submit certain documents that prove that:
- The will is genuine and is the last will made by the testator.
- The proof of death of the testator.
- That the will is validly executed in clear conscience of the testator.

d) What will be the legal consequences if the Will is not Probated?
If the Will which is required to be probated, under the Act, if not probated, has no legal sanctity and binding force. 

e) What is the procedure for grant of Probate?
Once the application is submitted, it will be verified by the authorities and letters (notifications) will be sent out to the nearest kin of the deceased, intimating them of the issue of probate. A general notice is published for the public to view, and giving an opportunity for raising any objections to the grant of probate.
The probate is issued if no objections are received from any kin or any general public, and is done after the court fees are paid. The court fees depend upon the value of the immovable assets.
