image for Gift deed format


Gift is a generic term that has all transfers of property inconsiderately . In India, Gift is taken into account like Hiba but technically, Gift contains a much wider scope than Hiba. The word Hiba means the donation of a thing from which donee may get profit. It must be immediate and complete.Since muslim law views the law of Gift as a part of law of contract, there must be an offer , an acceptance , and transfer.

 What is Gift deed?

A gift deed is a document that records the act of giving a present and is executed between the donor (the person giving the gift) and therefore the donee (person receiving the gift). Though it's not compulsory to execute a present deed while gifting any asset, it does create a legitimate documentary record. A gift is often a movable or immovable property that's transferable and tangible.

 Who can gift property? 

Only the donor can gift the property but there are some conditions.

i) person must have attained the age of majority - Governed by Indian Majority Act 1875.

 ii) Person must be of sound mind and have understanding of the transaction.

 iii) Person Must be free of any fraudulent or coercive advice as well as undue influence. 

iv) person must have ownership over the property to be transferred by way of gift. 

A gift by a wife is valid and is subjected to the same legal rules and consequences. A gift by a pardanashin woman is additionally valid but just in case of a dispute the burden of proof that the transaction was not guided  by coercion or undue influence is on the donee.
Gift by an individual in insolvent circumstances is valid given that it's actual and not merely intended to defraud the creditors.

What are the essentials of a valid gift?

These are the essentials of a valid gift – 

1. A declaration by the donor - There must be a clear and unambiguous intention of the donor to make a gift.

 2. Acceptance by the donee - Gift is void if the donee has not given his acceptance. guardian may accept on behalf of a minor.

The term possession means only such possession because the nature of the topic is capable of. Thus, the important test of the delivery of possession is to examine who - whether the donor or the donee - reaps the benefits of the property. If the donor is reaping the benefit then the delivery isn't done and the gift is invalid
