Wise men have described the life span of a human being akin to a bubble and death is ever lurking and imminent. Like any other human being I also can not be sure when it would be the time to depart from this world. I therefore find it appropriate, to execute this ‘WILL’ in respect of all my properties during my lifetime, when I am of sound mind, having free will, so that no person other than those deserving and described in this instrument/document are able to lay hands on my properties or create any dispute, litigation, hindrance of any sort against the beneficiaries of this document and after my death the beneficiaries of this document are able to enjoy all the rights and interests in my properties without any hindrance and obstruction from any person whosoever. Therefore after my death ownership and all rights of my properties i.e. moveable or immoveable shall vest in equal shares (or in shares stated herein below):

  1. Wife/Husband Mrs/Mr………… – ……% share.
  2. Son/Daughter namely………………..- ………% share.
  3. Son/Daughter namely………………..- ………% share.

If any of my above mentioned children expire during my lifetime, then after my death, the share/rights of said deceased child shall go to the child/children of my such deceased child in equal shares. However, in the unfortunate situation that even the children of one or more of my deceased child are not surviving then in such eventuality all my properties under this WILL shall go to my surviving children equally.

No other person, relatives etc. shall have anything to do with my properties and all other proprietary rights of whatsoever nature in the present as well as in future.

This WILL is drafted by me/Shri ………., Advocate …………
