Legally it is not neccessary at all just the signature of two witness es are sufficient. but , in practical, is always a good practice to regiester the will like me and my wife did it last year and have given one copy each to both of our children.,
re banks, they dont insist on a will if the person holding the account has made some one a nominee for any type of account savings or FD etc.
but if you are making a will, please do get it registered

Not necessary, if you avail the nomination facility, it's enough as for as banks are concerned...!

As per the law, the will is considered bonafide only if it is registered.. it is always best to register the will so that there are no false claims later.

A will duly signed by all legal hirers on a Paper under withness of two Social Persons also have same value after death only , as a registered Will have. A registered will prior death also have no value in eye of law . .............ji
