What is WILL?

A will is a legal document by which a person, the maker expresses his/her wishes as to how his/her property is to be distributed at the time of death, and it names one or more persons, the executor, to manage the estate until its final distribution.

In India, the legal provision related to the will can be found in the Indian Succession Act, 1925, and other personal laws. The Indian Succession Act, 1925 defines the will as “a legal declaration of the intention of a person with respect to his property, which he desires to take effect after his death.”

Contents of a Will?

Though there is no specific format or manner in which the will must be written. However, an effective will contains the following elements.

  1. Details of Maker: Details such as name, age, address, etc. to identify the maker.

  2. Legal declaration: The declarations made by the maker in the will must be legal.

  3. Intention: The will must clearly reflect the future intentions of the maker, i.e. how he wishes his property to be distributed amongst the beneficiaries.

  4. Beneficiary details: The details such as name, age, address etc. to identify the beneficiaries.

  5.  Execution after death: The will must capture the intention of the maker that he wants the will to be executed after his death.

  6. Minors: In case, the maker wants to bestow any property upon a minor, he must also appoint a guardian who will take care of minor’s property after the death of the minor.

  7. Executor: The maker should also appoint an executor of his will who will execute the will after the death of the maker.

Should you get your WILL registered?

Registering a will in India is not mandatory, but the additional layer of security and clarity it offers makes it a highly recommended legal step.

A) Reduced Risk of Tampering:

Once a will is registered, it is safely stored with the Registrar, reducing the risk of it being lost,  destroyed, or tampered with.

B) Clearer Interpretation:

 A registered will typically undergoes thorough scrutiny, which means that its terms are usually clear and unambiguous, reducing the scope for misinterpretation.

C) Official Record:

Registration provides an official government record of your will, making it easier to execute your  wishes as specified.

D) Deters Legal Challenges:

The act of registration itself can act as a deterrent to those who might challenge the will, as it is  generally assumed that a registered will has been prepared with due diligence.

E) Easy Retrieval:

In case the original will is lost, a copy can be easily obtained from the Registrar’s office if the will is  registered.

F)  Emotional Peace:

Last but not least, knowing that your assets will be distributed exactly as you wish can provide a  great deal of emotional peace of mind.
