  GIft deed once registered before sub registrar/registering authority may not be cancelledby the donor.It may not be taken back. It may  only be cancelled by competent court of law / civil court.

Dear friend,




The gift deed in case of immovable property can not be revoked by the donor once executed or registered with the register office. It can be nullified only through court under certain circumstances like the donor executing the gift deed forced by donee  by way of fraud, misrepresentation,coercion and undue influence, but the onus of proving the exceptional circumstances under which the giftee was executed lies with the donor.

Dear  sir,


Being an advocate you might have been awere that  validity of Registered Gift deed .


For  regisration of gifts the rule is not one and the same for Hindus and Muslims. After the gift was acted upon in normal cases the gift is irrevocable.

Try to understand what is the object of GIFT in TP ACT.Wether gift  is revocable? ,If the very purpose of gift is defeated i.e if the donee is a trust if the trust did not fullfill the purpose of gift and used the property other than purpose mentioned in the deed it can be revocable as it is one of the exceptional cicumstances for revocation and also fallow  as per the advice given by Mr Krishnan Venkatachalam with regard to procedure of revocation..
