Is an unregistered will on five rupees non judicial stamp valid

05-May-2023 (In Wills / Trusts Law)
I am Hindu. My late grandfather has handwritten his will on five ruppes non judicial stamp paper, counter signed by two witnesses but it is not registered. Is it valid? Also when my father applied for property transfer in Nagarpalika with the will paper. It was objected by my uncles. Can muncipial corporation reject the claim on the basis of registration of the will document?
