How to get a certified copy of the Will?

Certified copies of the Wills are made available only to the testator (one who makes the Will) or his authorised agent during the life time of the testator. No other person is entitled to get copies. Only after the death of the testator any person may apply for certified copies of Will. The applicant has to prove to the satisfaction of the registering Officer, about the death of the testator and the applications by third parties should be supported by the death certificate of the testator.

It may be noted that the testator may change the contents of the Will, may cancel the will or may make any number of Wills during his life time. Only the latest (last) Will of the deceased testator is a legally valid Will.
