2. There should be no consideration for the transfer of property; and
3. The Donee should express his acceptance to receive the gift during the lifetime of the donor, while the donor still has ownership over the property.
Frequently Asked Questions

If the value of the property being gifted is above Rs.100/-, the gift deed requires compulsory registration as provided under section 17(1)(a) of the Registration Act 1908. The gift deed needs to be signed by the Donor and the Donee and should be attested by at least 2 witnesses.
2. Can a gift deed be revoked?
As per section 126 of the Transfer of Property Act 1882, a gift once made cannot be revoked, except on the occurrence of an event as specified in the gift deed, not being in the control of the donor.

Under section 128 of the Transfer of Property Act 1882, the gift may consist of the donor’s whole property, however, in such instances, the donee is personally liable for all the debts due by the donor at the time of the gift to the extent of the property compromised therein.
