Is there any provision for safe custody of the will?

- by Shivakumar, Bangalore

Yes.  There is a provision for safe custody of will as provided in the Indian Registration Act, 1908.  The testator or his duly authorized agent may deposit the sealed cover containing the will with any Sub-registrar for safe custody upon payment of prescribed fees.

The cover should  be superscribed with the name of the testator or his agent with a statement of the nature of the document.  The deposited cover may be withdrawn by the testator or his agent on payment of prescribed fees.
