One can make a WILL on Self Acquired Property only  & not Ancestral or Copacenary Hindu Property.

Firstly the court needs to established wither it qualifies to be an Ancestral Property, if proven that it is an Ancestral Property than the WILL will stand as in valid.

Note:
A property which came in the hand of the holder from his father by way of succession becomes his self acquired property unless that property passed down to him undivided from forefathers in that case this may be considered as ancestral/copacenary Hindu family property.
