    hi friends , I want to know about which one is correct'' may will be'' or may well be ?

    actually , I know that '' may well be'' is gramatically correct . but I am not so sure about '' may will be '' is a regional usage or just a typo on web . in my opinion it cannot be typo . I came across this sentence in a official site .

    Corresponding Members shall not be required to pay dues but may will be required to pay a fee for meetings of the Society that they attend.

    if you enlighten me about usage of ''may well be and ''may will be'' , I will be grateful .

    I'm certain that "may will be" is a typo.

    I think they couldn't decide between 'may be' and 'will be' and forgot to delete one of them:

    may will be required to pay

    may will be required to pay

    It's definitely a typo! ;)
