Depending on your religion, there are different rules with respect to how your assets and property will be distributed after your death. However, if you make a will, your assets and property will be distributed among the people of your choosing and the specific religious rules do not generally apply.
As a Hindu person, the rules of inheritance under a law known as the Hindu Succession Act, 1956, are applicable.
Similarly as a Muslim, the rules applicable to inheritance will be according to Muslim personal law (unless you are married under the law on civil marriages). If Muslim personal law becomes applicable, you cannot distribute your entire property to people who are not your legal heirs. You can only will away one-third of your property to someone else and the remaining two-third has to be distributed among your legal heirs.
