There is no time frame for applying for probate. Court fee will depend of property mentioned. Maximum stamp duty payable is Rs 50,000/- in West Bengal. Application can be filed in the Civil Court which has the jurisdiction. High Court has concurrent powers.

there is no such time limit for filing a case for probate of a will. but, it is better advised to you to contact any lawyer, and show him/her the will, only then it is possible to say to you that within what time the thing can be done and what money or expenses will be incurred.
