(1) No transfer fees are to be paid to the society for transfer by gift or sale to a member of the family. (2) Gift deed has to be registered. Stamp duty and registration charges are applicable to the gift deed.

Very well advised by expert Mr. Kishor Mehta, I fully agree and appreciate his acumen and guidance. The CHS has nothing to do with transfer of title of the flat but restricted themselves to share only, for that no charges are there. Title of the flat shall change with registration of "gift deed", on payment of appropriate Stamp duty as well as registration charges, as applicable in your State.
