I have a self-acquired property. By a Will I bequeathed the property to my son and registered the Will. Thereafter, I changed my mind and bequeathed the property to my daughter through another Will, which is not registered. Is this valid?

It is not necessary to cancel a registered Will with another registered Will. However, it is always advisable to cancel the registered Will to avoid complications at a later date. If not the current holder of the unregistered Will shall have to prove the genuineness of the Will.
