As the will was not registered, the property must be distributed under the respective succession act.
Therefore shares of the son and daughter are determined as per the law applicable.
The appropriate step would be to initiate proceedings to hold the will as inadmissible and to devolve the property as per the succession act.

If it self acquired property of your grandfather then your father cannot claim if Will is genuine You have to prove that will is fake。your father has to file a case to prove that will is not genuineddddd

Validity of a Will depends on many legal requirements and legal formalities
Whether the legal formalities are followed in making the Will or not can be said only after seeing and reading the Will
In the absence we have to presume that the Will is valid.
