Due to his willingness some years later he made a legal document and allowed all the siblings to sign it and made his elder brother responsible for the property to settle the property amongst the siblings.Now some years later the elder brother is misusing the rights. Is the will the most powerful document in Indian law?Can he file a case to revoke the rights ?</span>

As told earlier,A will is a wish to be carried out after the death of a person.For a will to be VALID certain pre requisites are essential. In your case, the WILL is invalid because a person having an interest in the WILL cannot be a witness nor an executor of the WILL.Therefor as per law, your grand dad died without a WILL. Challenge it in court and you will win.
