S.63 of the Indian Succession Act, 1925 stipulates three conditions as regards to execution of will Viz.,

1. The testator shall sign or shall affix his mark to the will, or it shall be signed by some other person in his presence and by his direction.

2. The signature or mark of the testator, or the signature with respect to the property signed by him, shall be so placed that it shall appear that it was intended thereby to give effect to the writing as a Will.

3. The Will shall be attested by two or more witnesses, each of whom has seen the testator sign or affix his mark to the Will or has seen some other person sign the Will in the presence and by the direction of the testator, or has received from the testator a personal acknowledgment of his signature or mark, or of the signature of such other person, and each of the witnesses shall sign the Will in the presence of the testator, but it shall not be necessary that more than one witness be present at the same and no particular form of attestation shall be necessary.
