• Delhi Registration Rules, 1976, Rule 13, 18 - Will is not mandatorily registerable - Further, the deemed knowledge which flows from mandatorily registerable documents cannot be attributed to cases of registered Will - Registered Will is not a public document and is not open for public inspection - In fact, from the Delhi Registration Rules referred to by learned counsel for plaintiffs, it is apparent that copies of registered Wills are not furnished to the public at large - Consequently in cases of challenge to the existence of the Wills, the actual date of knowledge of existence of Will or date of receipt of such Will, would be the starting point of limitation - Also at this stage, the question of limitation has to be read in the context of facts pleaded in the plaint with respect to knowledge of the Will in dispute - Civil Procedure Code, 1908 (V of 1908) Order 7, Rule 11.  (179) PLR (Del.)
