My grand father had two sons and a daughter. he had executed a will in the form of notary ( it was not registered). on the basis of notary the properties were divided between the two sons and they were enjoying those properties from the past 9 years. and some of the properties were given for his grand children ( children of his two sons).

recently his daughter had mentioned in a notice belonging to a bank account, that she had not given any share in the will.


Even some already existed nationalized banks in our properties accepted the will and they also executed a fresh lease with us after the sudden death of my grand father. 

does she had a right to oppose the will?

she got married 48 years back and very well settled.

All the properties were ancestral.

it is always advisable to obtain probate of will . it is judicial proof that will is genuine . you grand father could only have bequeathed self acquired property by will . for ancestral properties your grand father could only have bequeathed his share

The daughter can claim the share in property since it is ancestral and she has a right in it. She has a valid reason to challenge the will.
