What is the legal procedure to contest a will’s validity in court?
There is no embargo under the Hindu Succession Act for bequeathing the entire estate for charitable purposes.
My uncle made a will before his death and left all of his immovable properties, bank accounts and shares to a charity that takes care of disabled and abandoned children. Aggrieved by this decision, his son, who is my cousin, and my aunt want to know if they can contest the will. They claim that my uncle had before his death spoken about transferring some assets to his son.
