It is not compulsory to make a will before one’s death but it is advisable that it is done. If you don’t make a will, intestate succession will come into being wherein the division of your property will be done in accordance with the Hindu Succession Act, 1956. In such a case, members of your family will receive a fixed amount of your property according to the Act’s various provisions. Now, the problem with intestate succession is that the process could take a long time and there could be disagreements, disputes and even legal cases that arise among your family members. To avoid this and to ensure a seamless disposition of your property, it is better that you make a will.
