Q. Probate of will

posted 1 week ago

I was going through the section 57 and section 213 of Indian succession act 1925. It says that any will made by Hindus, Buddhist, sikh, jaina on or after September 1st 1870 within the territories which at the said date were subject to the lieutenant governor of Bengal of within the local limit of ordinary civil jurisdiction of the high court of Madras and Bombay.
I would like to know if Bihar, orissa, and Assam is also part of this where probate is mandarory or it is only Kolkata, Mumbai and Madras
In Bihar, officers are asking for probate will for changing the name in records. Kindly advise
